I am looking to embark on a revived mission to spread hope, truth, and testimony.
This missions isn’t something that is new, but born of conviction from the Lord as I look to be more intentional in serving His purpose and to edify others in their walk with the Him.
Jeremiah was a man that the Lord proclaimed had purpose and mission. A verse that is typically used to delight new parents in the birth of their child or the pro-life community, stands out as truth in the walk of a believer.
Jeremiah 1:5 ESV
“Before I formed you in the womb I knew you, and before you were born I consecrated you; I appointed you a prophet to the nations.”
God knew all of us from the first moment He set our beings into motion. He formed us for good works upon faith in Christ through His grace and mercy. He placed opportunities and works ahead for us to grow our faith and the kingdom. Jeremiah simply was inspired by the Lord to write down His love for him so that we, too, can be encouraged in the trials and tribulations of life.
For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mother’s womb. I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
David, a man after God’s own heart, praised Him in the storms he sailed through and called upon Him through lament and adoration. David knew his place and who he needed to attribute all blessings to.
“The Spirit of God has made me, and the breath of the Almighty gives me life.”
In the middle of the worst life one can imagine, Job knew the truth. No matter how much that he wanted to step into doubt, he hung on to the fact that he was made by God for a purpose. The Almighty took precedence over any pain or tedious life choices.
Scripture for hope, words for truth, and a faithful God all rolled into one can be found in the promises of the Bible. Conviction of spirit, a bolstered heart, and communion with the Lord can be found in prayer. Direction, endurance, and motivation are found in the faith that we have in our Lord Jesus and the fact that we serve a good and living God.
When we are looking to revive old convictions or seek for guidance in a new one, He is the way and the one to give us hope through the process. He shows us our next steps if we allow our hearts to be open to Him. We cannot continue to allow blackened hearts or thoughts from previous experiences to make excuses for us. Embark on that mission and He will see you through… even if it’s your own doubts holding you back.We cannot continue to allow blackened hearts or thoughts from previous experiences to make excuses for us.

What is this mission of mine that I am stepping toward? It’s a revival of the passion I have in praying and advocating for the pro-life movement. Not only do I want to save babies, but I want their mamas and families to thrive on hope and to see that their choices should not lean towards a culture of death. Not only do I want people to turn from hopeless circumstances, but to embrace the beauty of the infirm, the elderly, and their lives instead of sweeping them away with the poison of euthanasia.
I want to be a voice that gives hope and encouragement through my own testimony and faith, and to be transparent in my own vulnerabilities throughout my lifetime. To see my own children model this hope after what the Lord has placed in my own hands is the ultimate goal of my movement towards furthering this mission. It’s more than walking miles with signs of testimonies and social media blasts, but about speaking up and out, standing on the corners praying, being present to answer questions, and sharing my life with those who are searching through their seemingly impossible situations.
“Speak up for those who can’t speak for themselves. Speak up for the rights of all those who are poor.”
I would ask you to please pray with me for the direction that I go and where I plant myself in this movement. Please pray for others like me who wish to take action and who want to create a legacy for their children to follow in.
