As Executive Director of Love INC of Tinley Park, I find myself continually turning to the book of Nehemiah for wisdom. I find that it gives me the encouragement I need in order to inspire those around me to affect change. Won’t you join me on my Nehemiah journey? Let us rise up and build our homes, our towns, our schools, our nation and our world to be a people who fulfill the vision God has for us!
Lord, God give me the courage
to see the truth,
assess the damage
and still believe.
Like Nehemiah, let me see past the ruins
beyond the pain of
straight to your world vision.
When the road seems impassable
lead me another way
directly to those you are empowering
to rebuild what you’ve designed.
Show me who the kings are…
those royal ones whose assignments
are philanthropy and influence
providing materials and expertise.
Help me to have the faith
to declare to the blind
who have stepped over the mess,
“Let us rise up and build!”
Lord, change their vision.
