I Think I Can

Sep 6, 2011  |     |   General

“I think I Can” That was her motto after 4 months on the New Life Program. She started to believe in herself and trusting God. Doors were opening up for her.

Michelle graduated the program and set out on her own with a new job and a place to live. Today I saw Michelle at our Timberlake Outreach Center coming in for her 2911 case management appointment. She looked wonderful as she said my name and gave me a big hug. She has been promoted in her job and is being sought after by another company. She is attending a Bible believing church that is helping her grow in a deeper relationship with Jesus and it shows in her smile. She told me she is starting college classes next week and hopes to be a drug and alcohol counselor. “I think I can do it Ms Kate, I really do!” I know she can. She holds firm to Philippians 4:13 “I can do everything through him who gives me strength.”

Michelle, and all the other graduates, is the reason I do what I do, day in and day out. Watching lives change for the Glory of God and watching those lives move forward for the Kingdom. What a day it will be when we all see Jesus face to face.

Please join us for the next graduation ceremony on Saturday, October 29th at 10:30 am at the Lydia House. Please RSVP to Maggie Cope at 402-422-1111 ext 1554 or mcope@opendoormission.org
