Resident Reflection

VOH has helped me focus on God and making Him “#1″ in my life instead of the worldly desires that have consumed my life for the past 4 years.The Staff and Interns at VOH  help me concentrate on my Lord and Savior in order to rededicate my life to Christ. I feel more happy and at peace with myself. Without the help that VOH has provided for me, I would continue to live a more miserable sinful life that would not honor my Heavenly Father. Even though there are hard times at VOH (being away from family), it has given me a chance to renew my life with Christ with accountability with Staff that would not come along with the distraction/pressure of the world on my shoulder. There is no other place like VOH and I am thankful for listening to God, family, friends and Pastoral Staff to make that commitment to get better in order to allow a safer and more hopeful future that God promised in Jeremiah 29:11. God has given/shown me that I need him for everything. Without Him I can’t grow with Fruits of the Spirit and have a deeper more spiritual relationship with him. My Father has also helped me learn more about Salvation in Him, how He can make me happy, to delight in Him with a heart that is joyful and thankful, and that He is ALWAYS there for me no matter what. The learning process of Biblical principles of making God my everything, praying/reading Scripture daily and conquering sin with the armor on me daily have allowed me to put them into practice/apple them daily to Glorify and honor my Father and whoever comes across my path. I am also applying these principles with God, family, friends and VOH Staff, knowing that I am striving and changing to become a “Woman after God’s own heart.” I feel my life will be different due to knowing how to handle my past and future with a Biblical perspective, putting into practice/applying to my life daily with a Christ-like attitude to Glorify him in every circumstance that comes my way. Putting complete trust/control in God and knowing He has what is best/safe for me in the future.
