God’s Living Hope 548 words

There comes in each one of us, a time when God will ask us, as He did with Peter, “Simon, son of John, do you love me more than these?” [John 21:15 RSV]
The scene was on the beach after Jesus had finished preparing breakfast for the apostles after a night of fishing without a catch as Jesus appeared to them beside the sea.

When discouraged or despondent as was Peter and the other Apostles, decisions were made not by Divine appointment, some have wandered astray discouraged ending up behind prison bars, not able to provide for loved ones.

Our Lord helps us see through His lens of hope, when for a season those who have wandered, Angel Tree Ministry outreach is such a ‘lens of hope’ to children who will receive a father or mother’s blessing of thankfulness and gratitude. Through the power of God’s presence to show amazing grace with living hope.

When Jesus confronted Peter on the beach, “Peter, do you love me more than these?” not once but three times, he was determined to show Peter the role he would one day play as spiritual giant and leader in the Church.

Our role may not be like that of Peter, but when Jesus speaks to your heart and my heart asking us, “Do you love these children as I do?” how might we reply? Consider The Ministry we are promoting - http://www.angeltree.org/angeltreehome

God hears children who call out to Him, to hear their heart in need of hope made alive. Loneliness can become calm assurance through Angel Tree Ministry outreach for children through our heart bringing hope for children of prisoners separated from family at Christmas.

What love we can bring in reaching out to fill the emptiness they feel without the presence of warmth because of a separated mother or father. Their loneliness can be lessened with a gift of love through Angel Tree.

Where these children and their separated parent’s are today can become a spiritual promise with living purpose and hope not yet recognized or understood.
Your time and love offering will build that hope and understanding through a lasting relationship with these children in need. God’s desire for us is to express not so much in word and speech, but rather in deed and truth. [1 John 3:18] Please consider bringing a love offering @ http://www.angeltree.org


For certain God’s hope is what brings faith to increase. The Apostle Paul said it so well in Romans 8:24-25, ‘For this hope we were saved. Now hope that is seen is not hope. For who hopes for what he sees? But if we hope for what we do not see, we wait for it with patience.’ [RSV]

Your giving in need of hope with vision for tomorrow, can be that hope seen for them today in giving a gift of love through Angel Tree ministry.

Consider any one of these three links below to give to Angel tree Ministries in support of these special children. What a wonderful way to bring joy in your heart as you reach out in love and bring living hope of promise to these families and their children.
