I think there are few words that hold as much assurance, confidence, and comfort as these words uttered from a valued friend, especially when life is full of challenges and disappointment.
While on my silent retreat in the summer of 2019, Jesus revealed Himself to me in a profound, personal, and intimate way. As I spent time with Him, He strengthened my belief that in all things, in all ways, I CAN COUNT ON HIM! As I embraced this truth, it became even more important in December 2019 when I was asked to step into the role as National Director for Connecting Streams Canada. Did I really live from a place of believing that I could count on Him for everything? My faith was tested. I was hardly 3 months into the role when COVID hit. Still trying to get my feet on the ground, I was thrown totally off by the pandemic, however, I leaned on the truth that “I CAN COUNT ON HIM”.
As followers of Jesus, we intellectually know that He is there for us always… and ‘WE CAN COUNT ON HIM”, however, is this reality that is lived out on a heart level? It was and still is a journey for me, learning with each step I take.
I would like to encourage you to ponder these words as a personal invitation from Jesus to you as He says “YOU CAN COUNT ON ME”.
With Thanksgiving being celebrated this month, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude for each and every one of you.
Through your prayers and financial support, you have helped CS continue to operate.
Thank you – WE CAN COUNT ON YOU! May God continue to bless you as you navigate your new COVID reality.
National Director, Connecting Streams
