Trying to end homelessness seems like an impossible ideal. As I contemplated this morning how I would begin such an insane endeavor I read this passage in the Bible:
"Call to Me and I will answer you, and I will tell you great and mighty things, which you do not know." Jeremiah 33:3
While this passage is taken from a prophesy regarding the restoration of Israel, I believe it holds truth for all creation to be restored back to its Creator.
It begins by calling out to God to ask for help and to find the answers. It is a step by step process. Like building a new home requires blueprints and materials and human labor, so to does taking people off the street and placing them into that very home. That is a great and mighty thing.
Meditate: I invite you in O Lord to meet me where I desire your love and peace.
Pray for the six participants whom I will be baptizing today, into the Body of Christ.
