Man and woman pointing to cross

Come again to the place of safety,
all you prisoners, for there is yet hope!
I promise right now,
I will repay you two mercies for each of your woes!
Zechariah 9:12 (NLT)

No matter who we are or what we've done, Jesus said we are to "come to me as a little child." Now, I don't know about you, but there have been times I've acted childish, and times I've felt alone and afraid — much like a little child — lately. Trust me — it wasn't a comfortable feeling either. So, if you're upset with me, just go ahead and forgive me, and let's get on with it and see what He has planned for us — ok?

As you may have noticed - things have changed a bit. We've been praying and debating as to whether we should totally closed down the ministry. We've had problems sending out emails and other problems even larger than that. By the end of June we will know definitely - it will be posted here.

However, today, June 3, I am encouraged that things are looking positive. I am very close to having some of my writing published - and if that happens - well - who knows? Let's see what God has in mind - right?

What are Woes?

Well, they are those circumstances ...
Visit the Hope Connection to discover the answer.

"Nobody escapes being wounded. We all are wounded people, whether physically, emotionally, mentally, or spiritually. The main question is not 'How can we hide our wounds?' so we don't have to be embarrassed, but 'How can we put our woundedness in the service of others?' When our wounds cease to be a source of shame, and become a source of healing, we have become wounded healers.
Jesus is God's wounded healer: through his wounds we are healed. Jesus' suffering and death brought joy and life. His humiliation brought glory; his rejection brought a community of love. As followers of Jesus we can also allow our wounds to bring healing to others."

If you surf around the website very long, you will soon very likely discover that I am quite passionate about helping victims of sexual abuse. There is an entire section for these victims. Now, I don't just single out these folks, there are many other subjects in the "Hope Connection," but my focus is on victims of sexual abuse because I am a survivor - well, let's say I am a victor through the blood of Jesus! I hope you will take time to visit that section if you have been there or know someone who has been there!

Praise the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ!
He is the Father who is compassionate and the God who gives comfort.
He comforts us whenever we suffer.
That is why whenever other people suffer,
we are able to comfort them by using the same comfort
we have received from God.
2 Corinthians 1:3-4 God's Word
