Heading into this new year, there is one word that keeps popping up everywhere I look: uncertainty. I don’t yet know what Covid restrictions might be in place when we have summer camp this year. I'm also waiting to hear from the school board about major changes to the school calendar which could drastically shorten summer for local children. When you add the changing political climate to the mix, it can leave a lot of uncertainty about the future.
The word “uncertainty” appears just once in my Bible. It’s found in 1 Timothy 6:17, “Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy,” (NASB). What a fresh perspective! Even great worldly wealth comes with uncertainty, but God is worthy of our hope. Instead of focusing on all the uncertainty in the world, we should instead focus on God who provides for every need and takes care of every concern. There is no cause for alarm, worry, or anxiety when we are trusting in Him.
So, together with our supporters as ministry partners, we move forward into 2021 with confidence and assurance that the Lord goes before us. We have Jesus Christ as our guide. So, there is no room for fear and every cause for hope.
If you would like to join us on this journey with the Lord to share His love with children who desperately need it, there are several ways you can partner with us. We are currently taking applications for summer staff members HERE. Or, at that same link, you can apply to volunteer some time with us to lend your skills to the cause. You can also partner with us through your giving using the Donate button below or mail your donation to PO Box 9, Bostic NC 28018.
Together, God can use us to accomplish His purpose and plan for 2021.
