Proverbs 23:18 (NLT) --- Surely there is a future, And your hope will not be cut off.
I have been in a couple different meetings this week and had numerous conversations with people who live in our area who want to help people in need. We have talked about the needs we see, the services we offer, and way beyond.
It is amazing to stop and listen. It is amazing to see things from a new point of view. What excites me this week is that we can and are "offering hope together".
We are not alone. There are other agencies, churches, organizations and such that are linking up to make a difference in our community by helping hurting people.
Psalm 9:18 (NLT) --- But the needy will not be ignored forever; the hopes of the poor will not always be crushed.
God hears the prayers and the cries of those in need. It is like nothing else to able to offer hope to those who have little or no hope. God's desire is to connect with people, and God uses you and me. He uses those who are open, those who are looking, those who will step forward to do something what the pain that we see.
It is time that we step forward. As we do, we will be "offering hope together" to those who need to connect with Jesus!
Paul said this about Jesus ... 1 Timothy 1:1 (NLT) --- ... our Savior and Christ Jesus, who gives us hope.
