A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

A Simple Life, a Childlike Faith

Reflections on scriptures by Eric

Eric Voorhees is an active member of The Special Gathering who loves to serve others.  Acquainted with hard work, he has been employed for many years at a nursing home.  He is well respected by the residents there and by his employers.  The Special Gathering is a ministry within the intellectually disabled community.  Voorhees is a deacon and sings in our choir.

In Matthew 11:28,  Jesus said, “Come to me all who labor and are heavy laden and I will give you rest.”  I can ask the Lord to carry my cross and to help me with all my burdens.

A child is not always pleased by what a loving parent does, and yet…”We know that in everything God works for our good”  (Romans 8:28).

I can find God’s hand in the events of each day because “the old has passed away, behold the new has come” ( II Corinthians 5:17).  With God, new doors are opening in my life and they lead the way to a fuller life.

Willing to Change
