Summertime is here, and we have lots of incredible ministry and love to share with those who come to Star of Hope Mission for help! I came across this statement recently, and thought of us:
"When you know where you are going, it changes everything!"
I paused in my tracks ... and thought about this statement, and read it again and again. When we accept a new job, we set our sights on the goals of the organization and look forward with excitement to serve there. When we begin a well planned trip, we again set our minds and our excitement toward a new adventure.
Well the same is true with our eternal destination. When we accept Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior, and receive His forgiveness, redemption and promise of eternal life with Him, everything about us and our future changes! His love is perfected in us. We no longer have the same emptiness and fears about life and about our future. And our hearts begin a journey of love with our Savior, and a desire to find and fulfill His purposes for our lives.
When does homelessness end? Homelessness ends when a heart becomes secure in God's love and has a home in Heaven with Him. IT CHANGES EVERYTHING!
In this video Sharon speaks about her life change and healing from addiction and grief, to productive lives for her and her son. Please take a moment to listen to her story.
Thank you for your faithful support to end homelessness in our community. I'm praying for God's great joy to you as you give, pray and serve with Star of Hope Mission this summer!
"This is love, not that we loved God, but that He loved us,
and sent His Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." I John 4:10 NIV
