Do the impossible! For men that is…

Day 72

Wow…I have just jumped head first into an impossible project…and I am loving it!  Of course, I am scared to death.  Because in and of myself…there is NO WAY that this will ever happen.  The project is the Village of Emmaus.  I wrote about one of the most amazing people that I have ever met…and her name is Betty.  She has been ministering to and caring for people for FORTY TWO years…well not it is time for her to be ministered to.

That is where I come in….I have asked her for the opportunity to help restore the Village of Emmaus.  Check out there website and be blessed:  Betty and Emmaus is all about ministering to our Veterans who are hurting badly after their service to our country….and we just want to make a place where God can meet them, and they can restore their lives.  The goal of that is so that they can restore others.

To do that with excellence, which is what God asks of us…it will take a lot of folks working to restore this place to the condition that God intended for it.  And it will take lots of money and supplies.  So basically, the task is impossible for humans…but easy for God.  Isn’t that great?  I am blessed to be part of something that for humans will be an absolute failure….now that is exciting.  Because that means  that the only way this will work is to lean totally on God:

Proverbs 3: 5-6 – 5 Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; 6 in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight.

And Pray….

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 – Rejoice always; pray without ceasing; in everything give thanks; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

And Hang in there….

Galatians 6:9 –  9Let us not lose heart in doing good, for in due time we will reap if wedo not grow weary.

Be encouraged…there are many ways that we can walk with God and allow Him to show His power.  Just get in the game!  Oh yeah…please pray for me.  Don’t say you will and not do it….say you will and get on your face asking God to provide the resources, manpower, tools, and talents and money to Bless Betty and all of the Vets at Emmaus.

Grace and Peace, Dan

About Dan

My name is Dan. I grew up on the lovely Eastern Shore of Maryland...go Colonels! God really got a hold of me a few years back and asked me when I was going to "get in the game" and start living my life for Him. I have been burdened with the fact that many...many men in our world are wasting their lives while God wants them in the game. This is one of the ways that I am giving them that challenge...our nation, and our world depends on it. So thanks for your support...and your prayers. Dan
