I have a dream.
To help the broken, to write a book, to speak to people about the goodness of God… but, my wildest and biggest dream is to open a retreat center for broken people to come and be restored. God has literally shown me in clear glimpses what it will look like, what it will be like, and what it will do for multitudes.
I’ve spent the last two years dreaming quietly, while helping others live their dreams. But, I’m sure that it’s time to live mine, now. There are millions of hurting and broken people who have lost their hope. I want to help them find it again.
I was meditating on some of the things God has shown me and began getting ideas at light speed! I felt a still, small voice saying, ‘you have not because you ask not.’ God began to download some GREAT ideas into my mind. I started to write numbers and thought, ‘duh!’ Money is no obstacle for God!’ I believe it is time to start asking people to sow into this God-given dream. In order for it to come to pass, I need money… and, well, it doesn’t grow on trees. With our Christmas project, Stand in the Gap, right around the corner, what better time is there to become a monthly partner of From the Ruins?! And, guess what!! Literally five minutes after God resolved in my heart that it’s ok to ask Him and it’s ok to ask people to put their money where their mouth is, I got an amazing call.
A friend called and said that God impressed it on her heart to give her very first commission check to FTR!!! Love it when God confirms that He’s STILL speaking.
So, with all of that being said, will you partner with us? Will you be a monthly contributor to help hurting and broken people? If so, click the link on our home page or the donate tab on Facebook.
Here’s the closest picture I could find of what the retreat center will look like:
