As I can I want to offer a fresh word of encouragement sharing from my experience how our Father God meets us in the middle of loving and living out our faith to draw others to freedom. 

I fully believe we are offered so much more than we ever experience as Christ followers. We settle for a life in bondage to the elemental nature of this world and continue to live as Hagar when in fact we are daughters of Sarah.

Galatians 4:31
31 So, brothers [and sisters], we are children not of the slave woman, but of the free woman.

When a seed falls to the ground...

 

 

 

 

John 12:24 TPT Let me make this clear:[a] A single grain of wheat will never be more than a single grain of wheat unless it drops into the ground and dies. Because then it sprouts and produces[b] a great harvest of wheat—all because one grain[c]died.[d]

c. 12:24 The “one grain” is Jesus Christ, who will within days be offered as the sacrifice for sin on Calvary’s cross. He will “drop” into the ground as “a grain of wheat” and bring forth a great “harvest” of “seeds.” This parable given to Philip and Andrew was meant to be Jesus’ reply to the request by the non-Jewish seekers to see Jesus. Christ’s answer? “They will see me through you. As you follow me, you will also experience the dying and birthing experience.” The harvest among the nations will come when we follow Jesus where he goes.

Three years ago this month I walked through the beginning of a season of dying to the purposes, plans and priorities that I thought were my heading in ministry.  I came to a realization that I needed to humble myself and drop the armor I was carrying to keep up with what I thought I was to do, the people I was to walk it out with, and the efforts to focus on. In a few short months all those plans, purposes and relationships ended.

The Lord graciously opened up an opportunity to serve at our church in a safe place for me to heal, to grow and to learn. Almost daily we declared Luke 4:18-19 NIV

 “The Spirit of the Lord is on me,

    because he has anointed me
    to proclaim good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
    and recovery of sight for the blind,
to set the oppressed free,
19     to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favor.”

This declaration took me back to who I am in Christ as well as the foundations of HoHC, and has since opened up new opportunities of ministry. This season took me from having to work outside of House of His Creation to returning full time this past June. As a ministry we put to rest the larger ministry, FoRM we had created and made the decision to relocate operating solely as House of His Creation. And now, as a family, we have received new vision for our part in the work of House of His Creation...our role as House Family at the maternity home is coming to and end. We moved into Lititz with the purpose of expanding and seeing an extended arm of House of His Creation brought to life following the heart of Psalm 68:5(6a)

A father to the fatherless, a defender of widows,
    is God in his holy dwelling.
God sets the lonely in families, 

As the grain of wheat has fallen we have seen multiplication and new fruits after years of labor. It is time for the purposes of HoHC and our family to expand and to provide for another underserved group of women (exploited girls coming out of sex trafficking). This will be an experience of family and home, the context in which we see the most healing. We are going to open a new house known as 685 to specifically serve these women.

To learn more we have a page to keep up to date on this process: The 685 Program

As you think of seasons when relationships, ministry efforts, or purposes came to a close; do you see the new life that has come from that?  

My prayer for you is that you too may experience beauty for ashes, receive the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of despair. (Isaiah 61).
