Dear Love INC Community,
Confession: I am a big fan of the quote, “God is in the details.” Ever since becoming a Christian during my freshman year of college, I have resonated with the idea that God could care about every minute detail of our lives.
It is not a burdensome reality that God is alive in every moment, calling us to Himself; it is an exciting opportunity to live the abundant life God offers us through relationship with Christ. And that is what we here at Love INC are choosing to embrace this year as we walk in the good works that God has prepared in advance for us to do (Eph. 2:10).
It helps motivate us to look back on 2016, a year filled with ups and downs just like any other. We scaled a lot of proverbial mountains in 2016 but it was not the peak of the mountain that made it all possible, it was the climb, the journey getting there. And when we get a glimpse of where we’ve gone, we are encouraged that our every small step of faith and action mattered.
I invite you who, however big or small, have contributed to the ministry this past year through volunteering time and energy, offering financial support, donations, and/or prayer, to see a visual representation of what you have accomplished through the following statistics. Enjoy a momentary glimpse of how far we’ve come, and let it encourage you as we move forward together.
“Brothers and sisters, I do not consider myself yet to have taken hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called me heavenward in Christ Jesus.”-Philippians 3:13-14
