Can I take a moment on this beautiful Sunday and say "Thank you" to all of you who pray for our ladies...
who give sacrificially....
who wrestle every day, asking God hard questions about material possessions and how to be a good steward of the blessings God has given. Asking those questions is never simple.
Thank you for giving away what God has given you for girls like Mirlene.
It is a struggle to take Jesus at His Word, look to Him as our example, and then know what to keep and what to give. I don't see this struggle ending until all of our struggles end, the glass is wiped clear, and we see the Author and Perfecter of our faith face to face.
May we all continue to labor, to fight the good fight, and ask difficult questions about poverty and how Christ would have us respond. May we remember that there are people behind these theories and souls behind these theologies.
We feel your prayers. Your words of encouragement are treasure to us.
Your love for these ladies is beautiful.
Thank you for being in this with us and giving us the privilege of
being here for girls like Mirlene and her baby during their most vulnerable moments.
God has always chosen to use people to be conduits of His love, provision, and grace. He's always asked others to give, pray, and advocate for people who have no way to do those things on their own. What a risky plan...leaving the care of the vulnerable to sinful, broken, selfish people like you and me. May He be glorified in the giving, and the wrestling, and the asking of hard questions. May we find Him in the friction, the dissonance, and may every single bit of it grow our faith and cause our hearts to groan for His Kingdom to come..His will to be done...on earth as it is in heaven.
