The New Year is HERE! And as we look at this world, we see uncertain times all around us. Nation against nation, people against people, division among Americans, government financial crises from the European Union to our own Washington, D.C., violence in our society, unemployment for many…and on and on it goes.
But here at Star of Hope, God’s miracles are abounding in the hearts and lives of so many in our community today! Decisions to follow Christ are at amazing levels, families are being reunited, and freedom from addictions of every kind is achieved daily. What an amazing year 2012 was for Star of Hope, with rich blessings from our Lord in every area of our ministry together.
As we face 2013, the only One we can turn to with our full trust and confidence is God. As we enter this new year, let’s all pray earnestly for God to forgive our sins, heal our land and use us in a powerful way here at Star of Hope, to see an end to homelessness for many in our community in 2013. And let’s ask Him to make this a year where the results of His great work are profound!
Proverbs 3:5-6, one of my lifetime favorites, tells us to “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your path.” Let’s claim this scripture daily in 2013, rest in the knowledge that He has directed us to help those in need, and be confident that He will use us to accomplish His purposes!
Blessings to you and your family in 2013. Please keep all of us at Star of Hope in your prayers. And, we want to celebrate in person with YOU! Join us on Friday, February 8, 2013 for our Annual Banquet: Everything You Do!
