Every Moment Matters

“Courage To Be You”… “You should look in to C2BU”… “Have you heard about Courage To Be You?”… Okay, God…I am listening. I logged on to the website and for the next two hours I found myself reading every entry, article, letter, poem, and statistic. I realized that the vision for this organization to rescue, help, love and heal these girls was not only extraordinary and amazing but completely God led. In that moment I knew I needed to know more and to do more and that it would matter. I immediately signed up.

On the very last day of training as I walked out to my car, I heard a sweet voice behind me say, “Excuse me, why are you here?” As I stood there having a brief conversation with that beautiful young woman, I had an overwhelming moment that helped me truly understand how Gods master plan for our lives is always at work. I knew then that my own little girl, who went to be with the Lord 16 years prior, was sitting with Him now saying, “It’s time. I know she’s ready.” That moment mattered. I knew God was moving me, with His purpose, in the direction of Courage House.

A few weeks later, I was invited (by that same young woman with the sweet voice) to Courage House to meet the girls. Words cannot express how grateful, privileged and blessed I felt in that moment and continue to feel with each visit. Each and every beautiful Courage House girl is special, worthy, lovable – each with their own God-given gifts. I am blessed to know each one of them and am so grateful for the opportunity to matter in their lives, to watch them grow in their journey and to see the light in their eyes as they begin to realize their unique purpose while here on earth.

Every moment does matter.

“Yet God has made everything beautiful for its own time.”
Ecclesiastes 3:11
