I Have a Purpose Today

“I started grabbing on with all I had. Every day it just grew with more intensity to learn as much as I could about God.” - Anthony

THE IDEA OF “SHELTER” EVOKES CERTAIN IMAGES and feelings in our minds.

A tornado shelter is a refuge during a life-threatening storm. A shelterhouse in a city park is a gathering spot for friends and family to share a meal and to celebrate. We think of someone who has lived a sheltered life as having been kept out of some of the chaos of life, at least for a season.

A shelter is a safe place, a place that stays steady in the struggle. A shelter is a serving place, where needs are met and help is found. A shelter is a sacred place, where truth is spoken and God is present. A shelter provides rescue, but so much more. A shelter is a refuge, a temporary home to recover, to strengthen, to heal, to learn, to find hope, to be restored.
