Joe describes how broken he felt when he came to know the Lord. Feelings of abandonment and being lost caused him to seek Christ. He knew very little about God. All he remembered were things he had heard over the years. His knowledge about God was nothing more than a distant memory. Today Joe can say that through prayer he feels the closeness of a relationship with God. He expresses how when he calls out to God, he feels that God truly hears him. Joe’s personal relationships have also been restored because of God. Once in Joe’s life, his own mother had abandoned him. But today, Joe has repaired the damage from the past. He is now welcome in his mother’s home and even has his own room!
There is very little we can be sure of in our lives. Yet there is one thing we do know. When we call out to Christ, He hears us. It is through the comfort we receive from His presence, that we have strength to persevere.
“The eyes of the Lord are too the righteous, and His ears are open to their cry”
Courtney shares that she was raised in a Christian household. She also shares that the pressures of high school caused her to fall away. One night she realized that she no longer felt she had purpose in her life. After becoming involved with a Christian organization, Christ’s purpose for her life became evident. It was at that moment she learned to serve and to develop her personal relationship with Christ. Courtney learned about the unconditional love of God. This is what motivates her in work, relationships and prayers today. She currently helps with young teenagers and the struggles they go through. Helping these kids have become part of the purpose God has placed in her life. God has a way of turning our struggles into what He uses for us to help others. Courtney is also involved in ministry with her church, one of those ministries is an outreach ministry that travels all over the world to preach the Gospel. Right now she is helping train a group that will be going to Guatemala in the summer of 2014.

Joseph is the youngest of Jacob’s sons. He has a dream that one day he would be the head of his brothers. He shares his dream with the ones he loves. Because of that, his brothers are jealous. They resolve to make Joseph fall. Joseph goes through a lot of obstacles to become the man he is. His heart’s desire is to forgive his brothers. He also wants to be in the will of God. As believers we are given two choices with hurtful relationships. We can choose to be angry, bitter and to hold on to the past. Or we can choose to forgive the past and walk in love, towards the future. When we choose to forgive, sometimes we even discover that was the plan for us the whole time. God always intended for Joseph to go through everything he went through. God intended to use what his brothers meant for harm. He used it to make Joseph the man he was always meant to be.
“You intended to harm me, but God intended it for good to accomplish what is now being done, the saving of many lives.”
