This Month’s Theme

The theme for June is “Inspiration”. It comes from one of our South team members, Claudio Araujo, who is from Brazil, and here is what he has to say about how God led him to this topic:

“Inspiration comes from dreams. If you don’t have a dream, you don’t have inspiration. People inside of prison and some outside of prison lost their dreams or do not have a dream. Our job, our Mission, is to bring it back with motivation and wisdom from God. We can have a change. I’ve been so blessed, and I am positive that came from the right inspiration.

What is your inspiration? What type of inspiration do you have? From where do you find your inspiration? 

My example, my testimony. 5 years ago, I had a situation that made me have a dream! The Bible, the Word of God, inspired me and helped me to accomplish my dream. I received a miracle. Healing of sickness and freedom from addictions. And from 5 years to now, I’ve been so blessed with deliverance, peace, and support for what I need to live in this fleeting life. To JESUS be all the glory!!!!  It mattered to me that Jesus became greater, and I became lesser.

Here are some Bible verses to go along with this month’s theme of “Inspiration”.

Jeremiah 29:11 ~ “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

Deuteronomy 31:6 ~ “Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”

Proverbs 3:5-6 ~ “Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths.”

2 Corinthians 4:16-18 ~ “So we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, our inner self is being renewed day by day. For this light momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”
