At the end of Psalm 27, David writes, “Hope in the Lord! Be strong! Let your heart take courage! Hope in the Lord!” But he doesn’t write this from a mountaintop moment; he writes it in the middle of being pursued by enemies, shut out from the house of the Lord, having just parted from his father and mother, and being subject to slander. In the midst of these challenges, he turns to God as his source of strength and hope.
When I face challenges I am tempted to turn to Netflix, my guitar, ice cream and other vices. But nothing satisfies to give strength and hope like Jesus. I feel like I relearn this lesson over and over, and am grateful for God’s patience and acceptance. And amid the struggles of this ever changing world I have found Jesus to be the one and only constant and comfort.
Through your partnership with ServLife, you are helping to share this hope and strength with people in India and Nepal that desperately need it. Yes, we are helping in physical ways by feeding children, providing business loans and more, but at the core of everything we do is sharing the love and hope of Jesus. Thank you for being a part of this global community to have a transformative impact on pastors, children and families in India and Nepal!
May we find our hope and strength in Jesus, and generously share this hope with others.
