You see, someone who is hopeless and alone usually cannot help themselves out of their situations. They have a great sense of loss and helplessness. We must come alongside and bring the Good News of Jesus Christ and all that He has to offer.
One definition for hope is to look forward to with confidence or expectation. We must bring the Word of God with all its hope to someone who does not know it is real. When we bring hope, we bring life. It is life changing for a person to finally believe. It is more than just asking God for something we need; we must instead expect our miracle. Somewhere in the midst of asking, believing, and expecting God to answer, we will find what we are looking for.
It is an honor to work at Open Door Mission where we can come and spread hope in what seem to be hopeless situations.
I think the song “At the Foot of the Cross” by Kathryn Scott, which paints a beautiful picture of what it looks like to allow God to be the Lord of our lives.
My prayer each day is that I can help these wonderful people at Open Door Mission trade their “ashes in for beauty” and give them hope for the future!
