Many men come to Providence Home anxiously looking for something, but they often do not really know what they are seeking. St. Augustine once wrote, “Thou hast formed us for Thyself, and our hearts are restless till they find rest in Thee.” God made us for Himself and desires to give us peaceful rest.
However, sometimes “things” get in the way of people finding their rest in God – things like previous, painful hurts. Many of our men have experienced childhood or adult trauma pain that interferes with them pursuing healing and peace through God. Many have tried to numb their pain with alcohol or drugs. And it works, but only for a moment.
Others come to Providence Home void of material items for various reasons, and they often think that replenishing items will bring them the satisfaction they are missing. Yet, material things are very poor substitutes for the One who can really bring true restoration and riches.
One of my greatest joys is when our men seek the Lord to find Him as their greatest treasure! Will you partner with us in this much-needed ministry? In fact, you may be the answer for a man to truly find his Lord and the rest he desperately needs.
Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest.
Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”
