Psalms 138:8 – The LORD will perfect [that which] concerneth me: thy mercy, O LORD, [endureth] for ever: forsake not the works of thine own hands.
Ephesians 2:10 – For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus unto good works, which God hath before ordained that we should walk in them.
The Lord has led me to start a charity knitting and crocheting group at our local library! He has opened so many doors, and made people very willing to assist me in getting the word out about the meetup.
This all started because of my hatred of child sex-trafficking. I hate pornography of all types, and despise the men who produce these nasty, nauseating sinful products. More than that, I despise the customers who keep pornography and sex trafficking of women and children going. I hate it intensely, but I will do what I can to make people aware of the horrors going on around them in a way that gets their attention and inspires them to legally fight against it.
I searched online for organizations that helped redeem women and children who have been raped, pimped, and sold for sex, and found several good ones. One in particular is The Porch Light. They happen to be affiliated with Orphan’s Heart and Florida Baptist Children’s Homes. So, after contacting someone with Porch Light, and she encouraging me to start a craft group to make things for the children and teens, I’ve gotten the ball rolling and am hoping to have a successful first meetup in May!
That’s how God works, I believe. He takes tragedies and turns them into something good for others. All we need to do is trust Him, obey Him, and read the King James bible daily, and pray. Follow where He leads, and know He will equip you with all you need to accomplish His purposes. Amen!
Romans 8:28King James Version (KJV)
28 And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.
