I am so excited about the Empowering Choices Ex-offender Aftercare Program beginning in Tuscaloosa. God has impressed this ministry on my heart. We have operated the program in one form or another in Maryland and in Texas. Our goal is to assist women who want to have a better and different life experience. I am so honored that God would decide to use me in this way.
I know all about second chances. I have needed and required so many chances to get it “right”. I believe everyone should be given as many chances as they are willing to work for. Who are we to judge how long it should take a person to see the light. How long did it take you? Maybe you still are not there. I believe that the women that God will end our way will be willing to put in the work to change their lives. Believe me ,no one wants to live a defeated life. I saw a commercial on TV that says that talked about a maybe life. If you are not living with all that God desires for you, then you may be living a maybe life.
Change is not possible without the help of the Lord. We think we do it ourselves in our naïve self, but it is through the workings of the Lord Jesus.
The program is scheduled to open May 7th in Tuscaloosa, Al. God has blessed us to collaborate with the Parks and Rec Dept. He has blessed us with the grace to wait for His provision and his promise. Thank you Lord.
We solicit your prayers for and with us. Pray for the women whose lives will be changed. Pray that they are tenacious about being whom and what God created them to be.
