Put Your Hope in God…
Fresh Start For All Nations, a ministry of GRACE and TRUTH, HOPE and FORGIVENESS, was formed as a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit in the fall of 2007. However, the essence of Fresh Start was planted in our hearts in the early 1980s. The seed the Lord planted in our hearts at that time has now grown and developed into an expanding “fresh start for every heart” mission of international impact!
A “Fresh Start”
The Lord’s invitation into this mission, His mission, included the revelation that so many are looking for a “fresh start”; and the divine stewardship of what it means, and what it takes to have a “fresh start” on God’s terms.
This is the essence of Fresh Start: A biblical pathway and process that leads to true FORGIVENESS and FREEDOM!
When I consider the state of the world today, I see so much hopelessness. Whatever people have gone through or are going through, they have lost hope through:
- The outcome that they were hoping for and hasn’t been realized
- The dream or desire that has gone unfulfilled
- The ongoing injustice that they are facing
- The pain that seems to have no end or escape
We do not see this as a crisis as much as we see it as a great opportunity- to invite men, women and young people into allowing The Lord to care for their hearts. And in seeing them set free from the debilitating effects of offense, hurt and loss, they experience something truly wonderful: REAL HOPE.
Not the counterfeit that they were once seeking in the approval or opinion of another person… or in the falsely defining power of the past… or in anything or anyone other than JESUS.
We are having great opportunity to experience this more and more in our own lives, as we are in a difficult season that includes facing Parkinson’s disease. The enemy would want us to feel defeated, to believe that God has abandoned us and to lose hope. But more than ever, we are convinced that the priority is taking care of our hearts, and putting our ultimate hope in The Lord – and not in an outcome.
Who or what are you putting your hope in today?
It’s not too late… start today… let the Lord care for your heart, put your hope in HIM, and experience HIS PEACE, POWER and PROVISION as you live increasingly FORGIVEN, FORGIVING and FREE!
