It is this week between Christmas and New Years that I find very stressful. I don’t mean to be negative, but I’m just telling you it is stressful to me. I wonder how many of you feel the same way?
Christmas is behind you; you ate too much, spent too much, but had an awesome time with family. You have great expectations for the new year, but wait! The new year isn’t here yet. So you linger through each day, slowly taking down decorations, mulling over all the things you’re going to change in 2015, but you can’t get started on any of it yet because…well…it’s still 2014. Does anyone else have these thoughts? I feel like I’m waiting at the starting gate and no one will open the gate!
I’m writing this letter to you a few days before you’re actually going to receive it in your inbox, so rest assured by the time you are reading this someone opened the gate and I’m off and running!
One of the things I am excited about for the new year is our theme. Never in the history of SaveOne have we had a themed year. You will be hearing about this in every newsletter, in our posts on facebook and twitter, and from your coordinator. Our theme is a scripture I repeatedly keep hearing. (My husband says that is God speaking in surround sound). It’s 2 Corinthians 1:4 and it goes like this…
“He comforts us in all our troubles so we can comfort others. When
they are troubled we will be able to give them the same comfort
God has given us.”
That screams of Chapter 10 in the SaveOne book. It’s what we’re all about. God has comforted us in our affliction after abortion and we can take that same comfort and comfort others in that same affliction.
The only way we are going to end abortion in our country and around our world is by enacting this scripture right here. It’s simply taking what God has done for us and sharing it with others.
Don’t let chapter 10 be the end for your SaveOne class members. Have them read this scripture and then go out and enact it. Let this scripture action be the last homework they complete. Find the person they know that needs the same comfort God has given them and then give it. Lead them to the next SaveOne class and introduce them to a loving, forgiving, merciful Father who has all the comfort we need.
Please let us know how we can help you. Log on and update your web page within the SaveOne website, like us on facebook, follow us on twitter, if you live in or around the Nashville area please sign up for Kroger rewards and name SaveOne as your sponsored charity, then we make a percentage of everything you spend at Kroger!
We have much travel coming up that will take us around the world and we need to raise some serious money for that. God has given us this opportunity that is bigger than any we have ever received to take HIS message to the ends of the earth. Please consider becoming a monthly partner with SaveOne for $25. You will receive our new t-shirt and will be appreciated more than you could ever know.
I love each and every one of you to pieces!
HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE!!
