It’s easy to get jaded when working with the public in any capacity. This is especially true when you work with an organization that seeks to make meaningful change in people’s lives. One of our staff members recently shared a story that brings some joy and shows God’s amazing grace.
Love INC has a client who had a very successful career, but struggled with substance abuse. The client worked hard to break the addiction. However, as often happens, the client “fell off the wagon” and struggled again with addiction. They lost their job, became homeless, slept in their car, and struggled with providing the basic needs of life. Sounds heart wrenching, right?
Well that’s not the end of the story. The client got involved with one of our partner churches, The Naz , in Brighton. They have a Celebrate Recovery program, “a ministry whose mission is to assist those who are trying to recover from hurts, habits, and hang-ups that have led to unhealthy and addictive behavior.” Our client is working again in their former career and continues on the road to recovery.
Love INC, with our partner church, has been able to help bridge the gap, provide prayer, and give the client hope. It’s why we’re here.
“but those who hope in the LORD will renew their strength. They will soar on wings like eagles; they will run and not grow weary, they will walk and not be faint.” ~ Isaiah 40:31
