Freeing Truth: Part 12

God gives each of us gifts to steward for His glory. Some people are good at speaking and teaching, some at serving and mentoring. Talents in art and music can be used greatly in serving the Lord, and there is such fulfillment in that pursuit!

1 Peter 4:10-11 says, “As each one has received a special gift, employ it in serving one another as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. Whoever speaks, is to do so as one who is speaking the utterances of God; whoever serves is to do so as one who is serving by the strength which God supplies; so that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belongs the glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen.” It is important that we as believers recognize the areas in which God has gifted us, and to actively use these gifts to bring glory to God and not to ourselves. We must remember that only He is worthy of all praise, and bringing His glory is our highest pursuit!

It is always so encouraging to see our residents use their gifts to glorify God. We have the privilege of seeing our ladies serve, connect with others, play instruments, sing, draw, and write to the glory of God, and we are so excited about that.

Sharing her talent for poetry, and prompted by our recent topic on Truth, one of our residents chose to bring glory to God by writing a poem for this blog. We hope you are moved to glorify God as you read:


Often we need hope

Often we need faith

Often we need patience

‘Cause sometimes we need to wait

But when it is the darkest

When things start to really shake

When it looks like Satan’s winning

And your faith just feels so fake

Lies take cover!

Hope take flight!

Faith recover!

Here comes the Light!

Truth wins the battle

Truth leads the fight

It shatters all the darkness

And gives faith brand new might

Bethany Dunn
Bethany heard about Vision of Hope while attending Word of Life Bible Institute in Florida. When she began praying about what God wanted her to do after graduating, He kept bringing Vision of Hope to her mind. Knowing that there was an internship available, Bethany applied, was accepted, and began her internship with VOH in July, 2012. Since then she has been amazed at the opportunities God has given her to learn more about His Word and how it applies to everyday life. Bethany now serves on staff at Vision of Hope.
