Hey there, world changer!

Many of you know that I work for a Rescue Mission that serves those struggling with homelessness in Orange County. There are many reasons I am passionate about what I do, but what I love most is that I get to see lives changed. It always moves me when people graduate because they walk into the program feeling like they’ve lost it all, but walk out restored with a whole new life and a future. You see, that’s just what Jesus does.

I realized early on that I’m not any different than the people that come to us for help. I, too, can relate and know what it feels like to hit rock bottom. Maybe my circumstances were different, but on the inside, I know what it means to feel lost with no direction in life. That’s until I had an encounter with Jesus and my whole world flipped upside down.

In Jesus, you find out who you are and what you are created for. In Him, you find purpose and meaning. I also realized that the life I was living was never meant for me. I was always created for more.

I don’t know what you’re walking through right now, but Jesus does. Some of you have settled for less than His best, but I want to encourage you that it’s never too late to start over again. Today is a new day. And, God is full of mercy and grace and has a whole new life He wants to give you.

Or, maybe you’re not settling in life, but you feel stagnant or stuck in your faith. Never stop reaching for more and asking God to take you deeper. There is so much more in Him that He wants to give you. He promises to take us from glory to glory!

I’m going to leave you with one of my favorite passages in the Bible — what an incredible truth!

“But, because of His great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions — it is by grace you have been saved. And, God raised us up with Christ and seated us with him in the heavenly realms in Christ Jesus, in order that in the coming ages he might show the incomparable riches of his grace, expressed in his kindness to us in Christ Jesus. For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith – and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God, not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.” (Ephesians 2:4-10)

Be blessed today!
