Real hope for the widows and orphans. Reaching hurting people with the love of Christ.
1 Peter 1:3-9 MSG
“What a God we have! And how fortunate we are to have him, this Father of our Master Jesus! Because Jesus was raised from the dead, we’ve been given a brand-new life and have everything to live for, including a future in heaven—and the future starts now! God is keeping careful watch over us and the future. The Day is coming when you’ll have it all—life healed and whole.
I know how great this makes you feel, even though you have to put up with every kind of aggravation in the meantime. Pure gold put in the fire comes out of it proved pure; genuine faith put through this suffering comes out proved genuine. When Jesus wraps this all up, it’s your faith, not your gold, that God will have on display as evidence of his victory.
You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and singing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.”
From My Blog
Encouragement from our lives in the middle of the valley. These blogs will encourage the widow (anyone who finds themselves in life suddenly missing their spouse), the orphan (anyone who feels abandoned or without including parents and children), and the hopeless and hurting. We pray that you find God in the middle of our stories and in the middle of yours.
