There is a light…

Recently I had the privilege of leading worship at a graduation ceremony at Mercy Ministries.  Mercy Ministries is a program designed to help women from 13-28 with life controlling issues such as eating disorders, abuse, trafficking, and alcohol or drug dependencies.  Check out Mercy Ministries to find out more about their programs.  To learn more about the founder Nancy Alcorn check out her blog.

While I was there I got to hear from one of their residents who was graduating from the program after battling anorexia.  She said something to the room full of residents that stuck with me.  She said, “There is a light at the end of the tunnel and His name is Jesus.”  I think this is something we can all take into our own lives.  Often we try and battle things on our own but forget that there is a light at the end of the tunnel.  It was a powerful statement coming from someone who just walked through a season of life where that statement rang true.
