Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.
Joy! The process of learning to respond with joy during times of trials in life begins with a conscious awareness that God is at work in our lives. We can respond to life's trials with genuine joy if we know and believe that the Lord has a purpose for why He would allow our difficult times and suffering. The purpose is to produce patience and endurance in our lives! How beautiful to think of the beauty that will be made from the ashes! Praise the Lord!
Please join us in praising Him for:
~The ongoing support and encouragement we continue to receive from all of you! Through your prayers, your service, and your donations. Together, as one body of Christ, we are helping our boys and girls find HOPE and HEALING!
~Another of our teen boys has earned his driving permit!
~Seeing the faithfulness of our God at work, even amongst the challenges that lie in front of us.
~Praise the Lord for joy in our teens' hearts!
Please also join us in prayer for:
~The Holy Spirit to continue to speak truth into the girls and boys, and that they will respond by taking steps toward healing and change.
~Ongoing strength, wisdom and discernment for staff as they continue to come alongside the teens as they process all that they are learning.
~The teens eyes to be opened to the fact that God is good and Jesus is the only one they need.
~The teens to continue to press into all the wonderful information they are learning, as they go forth walking out new coping skills and absorbing the knowledge of who they are in Christ.
