Emma's vivid imagination, took her back to McDonald's and briefly put her in the homeless women's shoes. '"Sir can I have some change?" Why does everybody ignore me? The hunger is painful and I smell horrid. Wheres my family or friends? This family looking at me, why don't they say hi or give me some food or change? I need help and nobody is helping or even know I'm here. How am I going to survive? Where am going to sleep? I am not loved. Life is meaningless. I want to die.' That was all she could take, the imagination was a lot more real then expected as she snapped back to reality with uncontrollable tears flowing down her flushed cheeks. She then thought about the thousands upon millions of homeless people around the world and her heart crumbled as she cried "Why don't you do anything God!?"
A still small voice deep in her heart replied "Look." She looked again at the beautiful array of countless stars, as her memory brought her back to her Dad's story about God promising Moses that he would have more children then the stars in the sky. She remembered asking her Dad how that could be. Her Dad explained to her about how Moses believed God and God accounted that as being righteous. He then went onto tell her about Jesus Christ. He started with the virgin birth and continued through his death on the cross, to the resurrection. He continued to tell her that if we believed and accepted Jesus into our hearts, we would not only be children of moses, but children of God and part of the body of Christ.
The memories and thoughts continued to flood in, it reminded her of Dory gaining her memory in Finding Nemo, at lightning quick speeds it was all starting to come together. Emma suddenly realized she had her answer. 'God has already provided us with everything. We are his hands and his feet, sent into the world to spread his light. It is my responsibility to make a change and allow God to flow through me.' The revelation hit her like a ton of bricks as she popped up off the ground and started to run, determined to change the world.
