"Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your paths," Proverbs 3:5-6.
This week, several events have caused us to have to trust God more, and He works, even through those circumstances. I'm sure it's the same for you. If you have any worries, they're not yours to bear. Give them over to God, and He will give you that peace that can only come from Him.
What are you not giving over to God? He's waiting for you to turn over all your concerns, worries, and fears over to Him.
How many times have you heard this Psalm? Do you truly believe it? Let's examine what it truly means.
This week, remember that God doesn't make mistakes. We can mess up, we can fail God, but He doesn't fail us EVER. Let's give thanks to Him for everything we have.
Psalm 145:1-3 (NKJV) says, "I will extol You, my God, O King; And I will bless Your name forever and ever. Every day I will bless You, And I will praise Your name forever and ever. Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised; And His greatness is unsearchable."
"God, I thank You for Your faithfulness to us, even when we don't deserve it. Please help us to become more like You, faithful in what we do."
Thank you so much to our financial partners. We look forward to starting our first children's home this year, but we do need more help to do so.
If you can give monthly or annually, please help by donating. If you'd rather pledge and then start giving once we start the children's home, you can also choose to pledge a monthly amount.
Could you please help us by sharing the blog post, as that would help us greatly!
We've created a new resource to help you learn about Potter's House Ministries and to share what programs we're offering.
Since our last blog update (before the coronavirus lockdown), we had presented our plans to purchase land and build our children's homes there. However, due to a desire to get started quicker, we are changing to a plan of renting an apartment for each children's home (for the moment) to help expedite the children's homes project. Below, you can see the percentage breakdown of the costs.
The total amount we'll need for the first children's home is approximately $5,000 USD. The total, as you see above, includes salaries and the rent for the apartment.
Please consider helping us monthly with this project. Each children's home will hold between 3-4 children. We do plan to also continue the afterschool program, but details are not ready about that at the moment (and we're not decided yet when that will restart). Please be in prayer for these two projects (as well as the other two projects we plan to start in the future).
