A Message from Pastor Robinson
In Genesis 37 verse 9, the "a" clause says, "And he dreamed yet another dream". I want to encourage everyone that has been on this Jobs Partnership journey with us that this is your season to dream again – and all you need to do is to come into agreement with God about His plans for your life. When you understand the story of Joseph and all that he went through, you will begin to see that the dreams were not about his current condition but were indicative of his future position.
With all the chaos that's going on in the world and in a land where we are filled with uncertainty and darkness it's refreshing to know that God will allow us to dream so that we might get clarity for our life's assignment. I believe that in this season you will not only get clarity about your life's assignment but God will begin to expose your true value. That means people are going to start seeing you not based on your zip code or your life's past resume, but based on your gifts, talents, and all that you bring to the table.
So, my challenge to you is to DREAM AGAIN and to AGREE with God about who you are and what you can do to transform the lives of the folks that are struggling in our community – as a volunteer or an employer or a donor to help us expand the ministry.
To AGREE means this:
A - God will ACCOMPANY you on your life's journey.
G - God will GUIDE you during the waiting period.
R - God will RELEASE you into your specific assignment.
E - God will EQUIP you for your time of appointment.
E - God will EMPOWER you to press through the CRISIS, CHAOS and CHALLENGES on the journey
IT'S TIME TO DREAM AGAIN AND THIS TIME DREAM BIG! We must dream big because there's a BIG WORK ahead of us. We must dream big because as an organization our goal is to expand from 4 training sites to 8 training sites throughout Orange County. We must dream big because there are more Sonya’s, Stephanie’s, and William's out there whose lives can be radically changed and impacted. As churches, volunteers, employers, and donors, we must dream big because as you participate in this BIG DREAM, you allow us to come a long side you and together we expand our reach.
If you would like to learn more about JP’s expansion plan, Marc and I would love to meet with you and share the vision God has given us as an organization to serve more people in more places. As you contemplate your year-end giving priorities, please include Jobs Partnership so we can reach the 47% of working families in Orange County who are struggling to pay for basic monthly necessities. Together, we will show them The Way Up!
