A January Thank You 2016

 

Dear Friend,

"The change He is making in me is good."

A high school girl said these words in one of our last groups of 2015.  She was reflecting on her year...and more than a few struggles she had walked through.  She had battled with anxiety, friend struggles, a few issues in her family.  But, her review of her year landed here: 

"The change He is making in me is good." 

She knew that God was using those very things to draw her closer to Him, to create more depth inside of her, more capacity to love.  He was drawing out more of who He has created her to be and awakening hope inside of her at the very same time.

"See, I am doing a new thing!  Now it springs up; do you not perceive it?  I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland." Isaiah 43:19

At Daystar, we're grateful for new things.  We're grateful that He uses the very pain that feels like it's going to take us under...and redeems it.  Sometimes quickly, but often times slowly.  But He still redeems it.  He still does new things.  And we have the great honor of walking alongside children and families in the process. 

Thank you for being a part of our ministry to this girl and to over 1300 families in the midst of change.  We're grateful to be on the journey with you. 

Happy New Year!
