At Beautiful Gate we strive to trust God each day but especially during these last couple of weeks, we have been trusting God specifically with our children. He is sovereign and His ways are higher than ours.
This place called Beautiful Gate is His and these precious children are His and our dedicated staff and volunteers are all His. We trust Him in the midst of difficult times and in good times. He cares about the children far beyond our own ability to care.
Last week we transferred 3 boys to another care center. And this week there was another reunification between a mother and child.
We have had several reunifications in the last month and along with these 3 transfers, we are now at 63 children. Our maximum is 75 children.
As sad as it is to say goodbye to the children that we have come to know and love, we know that now there is room for more vulnerable or abandoned children.
We continue to pray and ask that you join us in this call to seek and trust Him.
Isaiah 55: 6-13
Seek the Lord while he may be found;
call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake their ways
and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways,” declares the Lord.
“As the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts than your thoughts.
As the rain and the snow
come down from heaven,
and do not return to it
without watering the earth
and making it bud and flourish,
so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater,
so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty,
but will accomplish what I desire
and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.
You will go out in joy
and be led forth in peace;
the mountains and hills
will burst into song before you,
and all the trees of the field
will clap their hands.
Instead of the thornbush will grow the juniper,
and instead of briers the myrtle will grow.
This will be for the Lord’s renown,
for an everlasting sign,
that will endure forever.
