Today is the day the Lord hath made. I will rejoice and be glad in it. What a mighty God we serve.

Since moving into my very home in July, I have been blessed to be in the company of some of the nicest people on earth. The staff members at GRACE are genuinely loving and caring human beings, who want nothing less than the very best for and from us.

Then I am further blessed to worship with the same angels that were at my housewarming welcome. The ministers, board members, contributors and awesome folks who gave so selflessly to make my home one I am truly honored to be the recipient of, are still the faces of God in my eyes.

When I was trying to figure out where my life was going, I ran into one stumbling block after another. I found it difficult to get going in the mornings and sleep was not easy because I had so much on my mind. It seemed that everything I tried only dug me into a deeper hole.

I never lost my faith. I believe God has blessed me over and over again. I wasn’t worried about whether or not He would come. I wondered when and how.

To my amazement, He has shown me His unmerited favor. I thought so many times about what I could do differently and one day I was talking to my sister and said, “sweetie, sometimes God doesn’t want you to do anything. Sometimes he just wants us to give it all to him.” It was only then that I fell down on my knees and lay all I have at the throne of God.

And then came GRACE! I now have a plan for my future. I am able to see more clearly because I am not struggling with my day to day basic needs. GRACE has made such an impact on my survival for the future looks more promising than I could have hoped for.

That’s how God works through. He goes above and beyond anything I can dream.

I have settled into my home and even though I have to leave each day for work, I look forward to coming home. It’s warm and cozy. It’s safe and stress-free.

I am currently working with the help of my case manager in cleaning up my credit, managing my spending so that I can save.

I can’t thank you enough for your generosity and hard work. It is helping hands like yours that make the difference in the lives of people who otherwise would not have been able to pull it together on their own.

I take nothing for granted, I am acutely aware that I have been blessed immensely. I owe GRACE a debt of gratitude to my Heavenly Father for all he is doing. There are no words adequate enough to express my heartfelt gratitude for my forever family called GRACE.

I pray that when I leave GRACE I can give back to someone coming behind me who needs GRACE support like I did.
