I don't know about you, but the increasingly warm sunshine, the singing of birds, and the green growth all around are giving me renewed energy, joy, and strength. I've always loved the changing of seasons and all it represents. But this year and this moment feels especially significant because the hope of a new season is finally in sight, after one of great difficulty for many.
The Bible gives us this promise in Ecclesiastes 3:1 "There is a time for everything and a season for every activity under the heavens..." We can trust that just as God created the seasons, he will be with us through them all, and do something new when the time is right.
As an organization, Hephzibah has been through its own season of change. Through our recent survey, we have loved hearing from many of you about what the past seasons have meant to you. We also appreciate your confidence that God is leading us to greater levels of impact in transforming the lives of vulnerable children in this new season.
