Last week I spoke to a 15 year old young woman at Juvenile Hall. She had recently been committed to serve 60 days. Just in time for the holidays, I thought sadly. As if reading my mind, she responded sincerely “I know this is for a reason. Last time I was here, I gained so much.” God had used her undivided attention to help her reflect and move forward. Our prayers are that this time, it changes her course for good.
Over the holidays please remember those who cannot be with their families or who do not have safe places to celebrate. We know and believe God can and will meet all of us; no matter what our life circumstances may be. What a better time for Christ to enter our lives and remind us that the gospel comes in unexpected packages and is found bringing redemption in unexpected places. Let’s continue to believe for the miraculous this season!
Would you like to partner with us by giving a year-end gift?
Wishing you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
