The father said to his servants, “This son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found.” So they began to celebrate. - Luke 15:24 (NIV)
Recently, our house cat, Charlie, managed to sneak outside and disappear. For two weeks our family searched the neighborhood, prayed, and even passed out fliers with her picture; but sadly we couldn’t find her. As hope began to fade, God answered our prayers and Charlie returned home safe and sound....
I can always turn to God for safety and direction.

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
