Let’s do this, together

By July 26, 2016Day 02

“Who would follow me?” One of the barriers I face, most days, is one of responsibility. What do I need to do today? Who do I need to talk to? How do I make sure everyone is doing what they need to do? Really, for me, it comes down to the insecurity of, “Why would anyone, in their right mind, think what I am doing is a good idea?” Before, faced with that vision of crushing responsibility, I responded by doing nothing. What I came to realize was profound: nobody would think it’s a good idea and that’s a good thing. Ecclesiastes 1:1-11 came into focus. Only the eternal work of my Father matters and I follow Him. Released of the responsibility of having to be anything more than what God made me, I am now free to simply follow Him and show others what I’ve seen. Today I reached out to some friends and told them about this really great thing He is doing. I’m going to give simple obedience a try for 30 days and see where it goes. You want to do this with me? Day 2, Let’s do this – together.

Brian and Heather Flood said ‘yes’ in the Fall of 2014 when members from the community approached them to offer an education program to help adults in the downtown Savannah community overcome barriers to rising above poverty. With the Flood's background in education and professional arenas they bring an individualized approach to assessing the needs of Hope Academy's students. The program has since expanded to include a relational approach to teaching English as a second language (ESL) classes to refugees placed in the Savannah area.
