“I am only one but I am one. I cannot do everything but I can do something and because I cannot do everything I will not refuse to do the something that I can do.” (Edward Hales)
That is the way we feel as we minister to those who are chronically ill, grieving the loss of a loved one and experiencing personal losses and when we give support to those who journey with them.
We cannot do everything but we can do something.
Each day we enter the Spiritual Care Support Ministry Center it gives us the opportunity to be God’s hands extended. We truly know that we belong here. Even with the challenges that are brought to us as we hear the stories of pain and tragedy, we can offer support and share God’s perspective as to how they can get through this season of life.
We believe that there is a time to work through that pain but there comes a time when we can begin to learn how to take that tragedy with us to our future. Every experience we have will always be a part of who we are. We believe that you can be destroyed by that experience if you choose to be or you can embrace it and learn all you can learn to grow from the experience. God wants to give you hope and a future.
“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
