Some call it serendipity. Others call it luck or coincidence. But we know better; we believe better.
It’s been said that ‘God works in mysterious ways.’ And as believers, we’ve all experienced a time when God’s plans have left us totally bewildered and awestruck.
Because the life God has so carefully and lovingly orchestrated for us – the delicate interplay of our free will and God’s sovereignty – are far beyond what our limited minds can possibly understand. But the Bible and the testimonies of Christians throughout the ages are brimming with stories of how faith in God allows us to accept the undeniable over the unexplainable. And through our faith, we learn to accept the unexplainable to experience the undeniable.
The Bible says, "Trust in the Lord with all your heart; do not depend on your own understanding. Seek His will in all you do, and He will show you which path to take." (Proverbs 3:5-6, NLT).
And nowhere was this more clear than a recent gathering where local pastors and Christian leaders from all over the Brazos Valley met to discuss bringing unity to our communities by inspiring a climate of togetherness during a time when everything around us felt divided, fractured and suffering – mere days before a huge hurricane made landfall in Texas.
Coincidence? We know better; we believe better.
So many headlines in recent months have shone a light on a collective divide, but to know that God always had a greater purpose for our pain – to ready our hearts for a greater good – gives us the strength to continue His work with hope and joy.
Together, we are all greater than the sum of our parts so we’ve created this forum – a unifying website for local churches and Christian ministries to share information, updates and opportunities to help and donate to your fellow neighbors in need.
