Here we are back at the time of year where all of us in leadership with Operation Christmas Child--volunteers and staff alike--are setting goals and planning for another year.
I think I speak for all of us when I say that starting over is the hardest part of every year. Satan whispers things like, "Do you really want to do THAT again? Remember how much work it was? Remember all those roadblocks you had? "
This morning when we sang this worship song in church I couldn't believe how well it related to the journey of Operation Christmas Child. In all of the work of the past year, NEVER ONCE did God leave us alone.
He was the author and finisher of all of it. If you're an Operation Christmas Child staffer or volunteer (whether you work year-round in OCC or work to pack shoeboxes in a more seasonal way) please watch this and read the truth of the words.
Just as God stood with us while we were kneeling on the battleground of 2011, so He stands with us for 2012.
He will never leave us. NEVER ONCE.
