Well, things have changed and the future is unknown. We all react differently to things like this. Some of us fear. Some of us are angry/frustrated. Some of us are doing okay. The reality is: we don’t know the future. And we never really have. This time is simply making it that much more clear.
So let’s focus on what we do know.
1. Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever. Hebrews 13:8.
2. His perspective is vastly different than ours.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” Isaiah 55:8-9
3. He will lead us forward.
“Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding;
in all your ways submit to him, and he will direct your paths.” Proverbs 3:5-6
4. He will provide what we need:
“The LORD will guide you continually, giving you water when you are dry and restoring your strength. You will be like a well-watered garden, like an ever-flowing spring.” Isaiah 58:11
And we could go on and on!
Here is my encouragement to us:
How can we find the gold in this time? How will we innovate – and come up with new ways of serving and connecting with others? What lessons will we learn? What memories will we make? How will we learn to trust God in a new way?
We are in this together! What a blessing that we already know how to connect from a distance.
In the middle of this difficult time, we are here to help people support the foster care community AND, ultimately, experience Jesus together.
Leadership Development Page
We believe that supported leaders grow sustainable ministries that change lives and that is why we support YOU! But development in our leadership doesn’t just happen—we need to be intentional with our own leadership growth and pouring into those we lead. Check out the Leadership Development Page (now featured at the top of the Resource Page) and continue developing your leadership skills!
We want to celebrate with you!
