My Focus is Tuned In: Words of Transformation

During our 13 years, Homes of Hope has had the unique opportunity to welcome 272 men overcoming drug and alcohol addictions into our one-year Men’s Development Program. These men have been taught life, leadership, and construction-related job skills, as well as Bible-based instruction. Our goal is to see each man leave fully equipped to walk in freedom from addiction and into the ‘life to the full’ promised by Jesus Christ.picture-002

Recently we asked our Interns: “What’s the most significant lesson you’ve learned since your time at Homes of Hope?” Here are some responses:

“I no longer find my self worth and personal value in money and reputation but in God’s love for me and what He’s done in me. My senses are heightened; my focus is tuned in; and my aim is true. No opinion, rumor, or lie can pull my attention from God. No battle, circumstance, or dilemma is too great for Him.” — Joe, 28

“I believe I’m not here by chance but that God put me here for His purpose. He has placed me among men of wisdom to help guide me toward that purpose.”— Bruce, 54

“When I came to Homes of Hope I was lost and had no hope. I am learning to walk out my faith in God. I would like to thank everyone for believing in me, caring for me, and taking me in to teach me how to really live.”— Ken, 52

“I have been helped to understand how my past has contributed to my present battles; but even more important, I have learned that my past does not have to control my present or my future.”— Donald, 58

“I’ve been thinking that to ask God for help would make God (my Father) proud as if a son was asking his father for advice.”— Rocky, 28

Please continue to pray for our interns as they choose each day to walk in sobriety and freedom. Loosing the chains of bondage from a lifetime of addiction, habit, and hurt is a process of continual surrender.
