Finding Hope at Salvation Army

by Vonette Bright

“But the eyes of the LORD are on those who fear him, on those whose hope is in his unfailing love,� Psalm 33:18

Judy grew up surrounded by dirty concrete and smelly trash in a big city. 

Now she had two children of her own and no help to pay bills.  She had a few small jobs, but her family was often left alone.  Judy lost all hope.  She wanted her misery to end.

Then, one evening, she heard singing from the Salvation Army Mission.  Spontaneously, she walked into the center and began singing along. 

Tears rolled down her cheeks as she heard a message of hope and God’s love for the first time in her life.

That night, Judy asked Jesus into her life.  Joy filled her heart.  People offered to help solve her problems.  Judy felt alive for the first time in years.

Dear friend, in the name of Jesus, take time today to help someone in need.
