This is going to be a whirlwind month! Our Benefit Dinner on March 26, The Case for Life, is promising to be an evening to remember! I have been watching Lee Strobel’s DVDs and can hardly wait to meet him in person. What a story he has!
The evening may be even more memorable than we would like, since we have two babies due that week. We may be in for some real excitement! I hope you are planning on being part of the fun. One of our graduates and her little boy will be joining us and sharing what God has been doing in her life over the past four years since leaving Lifeline. Also, two of our current residents may be sharing their heart and journey with you.
And it certainly is a journey! When a young mom comes to Lifeline Family Center one of the first things we do is create a timeline designed just for her. Does she need to earn a GED? When will she complete her Character Classes and be eligible to apply for Student Level and career training? Finishing Childbirth Classes and giving birth are part of that timeline and journey to victory. Some incorporate reuniting with family in their timeline. It is a personal journey. One in which we hope and pray they will invite Jesus to travel with them. Nothing makes us happier than when we have to add a note to the timeline that says, “Accepted Christ as Savior and Lord of her life.” Yes! That is true victory.
Now what about you? Do you have a timeline? Where are you on this amazing journey we call life? Maybe you are at the setting goals and dreaming dreams stage. Maybe you are at the place in life where you feel you have “arrived.” You have run the race and the finish line is not so far off. Regardless of where you are, I challenge you to consider what God has yet to accomplish in and through your wonderful gift of life. “All the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.” Psalm 139:16. God’s Word declares this about you and each mom and baby at Lifeline Family Center. If you are reading this God has somehow knit us together. I trust you will listen carefully to His still soft voice and respond.
God bless you for caring.
For life and Truth,
President/ Executive Director
