Painting with a Purpose 4-8 PM
-- to encourage Hope in the midst of the Long Term Recovery Process. Join us for Open Community Painting of Hope Signs to give to those whose homes will be repaired this summer. Galveston County Long Term Recovery has thousands of volunteers coming to help restore homes -- We see them as Signs of Hope in our midst and will be commissioning them to Be Ambassadors of Hope to those they serve. We will also challenge them to name the Signs of Hope they see in their team members along the way. 

St. George's and Holy Trinity members are joining together along with community members to make signs of hope for these youth to share with those still in the recovery process. GCLTR has committed to serve those most vulnerable first. YOU CAN HELP by PRAYING For the Teams, GIVE financial aid. 100% of funds donated go directly to those in need.

God at Work

May he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ. Hebrews 13:21

“How have you seen God at work lately?” I asked some friends. One replied, “I see Him at work as I read the Scriptures each morning; I see Him at work as He helps me face each new day; I see Him at work when I know that He has been with me every step of the way—I realize how He has helped me to face challenges while giving me joy.” I love his answer because it reflects how through God’s Word and the indwelling presence of the Holy Spirit, God stays near to, and works in, those who love Him.

God working in His followers is a wonderful mystery that the writer to the Hebrews refers to as he draws his letter to a close in what’s known as a benediction: “. . . and may he work in us what is pleasing to him, through Jesus Christ” (Hebrews 13:21). With this conclusion, the writer reinforces the essential message of his letter—that God will equip His people to follow Him and that God will work in and through them for His glory.

The gift of God working in us can take us by surprise; perhaps we forgive someone who wrongs us or show patience to someone we find difficult. Our “God of peace” (v. 20) spreads His love and peace in and through us. How have you seen God at work lately?

Lord Jesus Christ, You equip me to do Your works for Your glory. Open my eyes today, that I might understand how You are calling me to follow You.
