Happy New Year!

December 28, 2018 |

2 Corinthians 5:17 – Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!

Who does not enjoy something shiny and new?  Replacing 2018 with 2019 does not automatically make everything new, but being in Christ guarantees newness in every minute of every day.  No matter who we are, HSHM employee, volunteer, or service recipient, we may have a tendency to be ruled by old hurts, old behaviors, and old ways of thinking.  My prayer for 2019 is that all will recognize the newness that Christ offers and live into that newness, every day.

The power of prayer

December 14, 2018 |

1 Timothy 2:1 – First of all, then, I urge that supplications, prayers, intercessions, and thanksgivings be made for everyone.

Prayer is powerful.  Prayer changes people and outcomes.  One of Home Sweet Home Ministries’ faithful donors has requested prayers for her grandfather, Charles, who is in fragile health.  I invite you to join me in praying for Charles, his family, and all who are involved in his care.  Who are you lifting up in prayer?  Please pray for our residents, that they will invite Jesus into their hearts during this season when we celebrate His birth.  Please pray for the staff, volunteers, and recipients of our Christmas Day meals.  And above all, let us give thanks to God for His great love, brought to earth in the person of Jesus. 

Be joyful in HOPE, patient in affliction, and faithful in prayerRomans 12:12
