In my job, I hear a lot of stories about brokenness, about pain and suffering, about what addiction does to someone and their family. From these stories, I have come to realize that we are all broken, that we all have experienced suffering in our lives. It is not just the homeless, needy or addicted who have pain. Some of our suffering may be through no fault of our own, and some of it may be the result of poor decisions. But the bottom line is we all have struggles, and we all are broken.
The good news is that I also have the wonderful opportunity to hear stories of how people have overcome their struggles and, in particular, their addictions. These are incredibly happy stories of redemption and rehabilitation. Our staff and volunteers at the Mission get to be a part of loving on people and watching God work in hearts and lives to heal people physically, emotionally and spiritually. We also see relationships with families and friends restored. We tell folks who come to us for help that no matter what has happened or what we have done, no matter how bad it has been, God loves us all and has a purpose for our lives. We are never too broken, nor is it ever too late to receive Jesus’ love and have your life changed forever.
The stories of change make my job one of the best! Thanks for loving the people we serve with your financial, volunteer and prayer support. We cannot do this without you!
