Please join us on Friday, August 19 at 7PM at Calvary Harvest Fields as we welcome speaker/author Robin Kramer for an evening of refreshment and encouragement for women.
RESTORE and RENEW:
Envisioning God’s “after” as we look at our “before” with eyes of faith.
“Behold, I am making everything new! “
Whether on an HGTV episode or online, people love watching renovations. Who can argue with a good before and after picture? Look! Do you see this thing that once was ugly, tired, and outdated? Well, now it's been repurposed and beautified. New life has been infused!
In a perfect side-by-side visual breakdown, we literally witness change. It gives hope. Of course, unlike a TV show, it can take a long time for the "after" stage to emerge in our lives. We might feel stuck in the before of a hard situation when everything feels broken down and worn out. We might be languishing in the strange purgatory of during where our circumstances resemble an ongoing construction site and everything feels out of order and uncomfortable, if not downright chaotic and depressing.
But, we have great hope. Just like the renovation of a decrepit house or an unsightly piece of furniture, bad life situations don't stay stuck in the before stage. This is biblical. Our current situations are not our ending points. Lives can be restored, problems overcome, troubles mended, and heartbreak salved. God specializes in making all things new. Even more, He empowers us to endure through confusing and painful during stages.
If you're stuck in a before or during stage, or just looking for a little refresh, we pray you’ll join us on Friday, August 19. It’ll be a night of encouragement, hope, and humor – reminding us that God gives us strength to endure, with hope, until we can see the after.
