As the moms at Mary’s Home go through the Mary’s Home Academy program, they have several opportunities to learn from others. Recently, Mary’s Home hosted a guest speaker who shared a powerful message about receiving and being worthy of, God’s love.
Almost all of us have had times when we feel unworthy of being loved. But for many women (and men too) these feelings aren’t temporary. The emotion comes from deep-rooted experiences and hurts in adulthood, and even from childhood, that are hard to overcome.
One of the goals of Dream Centers Mary’s Home is to help women coming from overwhelming circumstances to learn that they are worthy of love. And not just our love, but God’s love too.
Last weekend, the moms at Dream Centers Mary’s Home were invited to a women’s group to hear a guest speaker who came because she knew the Lord wanted her to tell her story to the moms of Mary’s Home. She came all the way from South Carolina.
The guest speaker had heard of Mary’s Home three years ago, right after she bravely left a domestic violence situation. She told of her struggle to lean into the Lord and follow Him. As she learned to love Him and accept His love for her, she saw how He had rescued and provided for her and her six children.
Her story was powerful! In addition to sharing her story, she brought t-shirts for the group with the word WORTHY on the front and Isiah 61:3 on the back.
“They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the Lord for the display of His splendor.” Isaiah 61:3.
The Mary’s Home moms each received a shirt, and were moved by her powerful testimony. We pray this seed of worthiness sowed by a visitor from South Carolina will grow the hearts of the Mary’s Home moms and they will feel the deep love of the Lord and see how worthy they are!
