This time of year we are reminded to ponder the things we are thankful for. God has called us to be continually thankful which is something we should all strive to do. Although Thanksgiving is an American Holiday, the act of ‘thanksgiving’ is very much Kingdom culture and also ZOE culture.
Our hearts overflow with joy and thanksgiving at ZOE when we see that God is transforming our children’s hearts. Recently, one of our children came excitedly up to her mom with an idea. Apparently it had become very obvious to her the amount of money it cost to care for her and the rest of the ZOE children. She was so moved by this that she wanted to help raise money to contribute. She was thankful and out of her thankfulness she was moved to action.
We feel a personal responsibility to continually be thanking God for you, our spiritual family, every time we pray. And we have every reason to do so because your faith is growing marvelously beyond measure. The unselfish love each of you share for one another is increasing and overflowing! - 2 Thessalonians 1:3, TPT
This verse is a prayer not only for the children in our care but for all of you who partner with us to see every person REACHED and every child RESCUED.
We are continually thanking God for you!
