We have arrived again to greet a new year. With curiosity, it is in our human nature, as explorers and wanderers, to reach out, to touch, and embrace the unexpected. Serving USA views new experiences as opportunities for growth, which can bring knowledge about ourselves and the world around us. In this coming year, we are all encouraged to be courageous, to remove fears of unknown outcomes and excuses to stay stationary.
May we be emboldened and elevated by the power which consistent prayer and leaning into the word of God will add to our lives. In looking into Luke, Chapter 11, we are reminded to be persistent in our seeking, our asking, “for everyone who asks receives; the one who seeks finds; and to the one who knocks, the door will be opened.”
Such boldness and confidence will be heard and can be manifested, and it simply begins with taking the initiative. We see this daily, lived out through our partners and their clients, who are seeking an education, starting a job, finding peace in their current living situation, and envisioning a career and the satisfaction an honest income can bring. An example is shared this month in the growing ministry of Epiphany Life Change, and the commitment Charles and Felicia Anderson have made to Christ and His people as they reach out to men and women who are incarcerated and coming out of incarceration.
This year we invite you to take the time to look, to ask, to become acquainted with our partners’ work, and to pray with us for floods of opportunity, good health, and an abundance of blessings for all. Find us online at www.servingusa.org, and please follow us on social media to receive words of encouragement and keep updated on upcoming events.
