Heavenly Father, please help us in the never-ending battle against sin.
“If you do well, will you not be accepted? And if you do not do well, sin lies at the door. And its desire is for you, but you should rule over it.” Genesis 4:7 (NJKV)
It sounds so simple, like telling someone in simple terms what actions they should take in a given situation. The reality, though, is that while the advice may be very true, it may also not be so simple to carry out. Take God’s advice to Cain. Cain was angry with his brother, angry to the point of being dangerous, and God was trying to head off the problem that He saw coming. He reasoned with Cain, telling him he still had a choice, and that Cain’s actions were still up to Cain’s determination.
Cain is no different than we are in this situation. Even though we may be following the inclinations of an angry heart, we still ALWAYS have choices. And those choices are totally up to us. Yes, we may be angry. But we can choose what we are going to do with that anger. Good choices can help us to help others who struggle with the same issues. Bad choices can lead us to a world of hurt and regret. It is our choice. It is our consequence.
Dear Father, thank you for providing for us the strength in Jesus to overcome, to face our issues, make our choices, and follow you. Help us to teach what we learn to others so that they also can share in the victory in Jesus. Amen.
It has become evident during the expansion process that the staff and volunteers of the City Mission will need to remain flexible and creative with space and resources in order to meet the ever-changing needs with which they are presented. These challenges strengthen resolve and encourage teamwork amongst directors, staff, volunteers and donors. It is often necessary during these times to look to the past for answers: how were problems dealt with during past expansion? how did the Mission operate during strained circumstances? It is during these moments of reflection that we are reminded of the 'Mission' that was first embarked on and encouraged to continue to carry out that vision today. The history of the Mission is as significant as its future. History provides evidence of growth, steadfastness, and direction. As we look forward to the completion of the Mission's current expansion in late 2015, it is advantageous to spend some moments in contemplation of significant past events. Read more...
