This blog discusses good news and fills you in on kingdom events I hear about.
Today, I think we can use some encouragement. Obviously, we have all been through a number of obstacles. The battle can feel ongoing, after taking multiple attempts to seek out solutions and wait for deliverance.
A dollop of depression, a drizzle of stress, shavings of bitter, and sprinkles of anxiety can really seem to top it all off. It’s unhealthy!
Instead, fill up with as much as The Lord as you can in any way. HEAR, SING, DANCE, READ, SPEAK, LEARN ABOUT and SEEK HIM!
It may seem tough to push through or figure out how it would all be okay but don’t leave it to chance. Embrace the one who adores you right now. Even if it doesn’t make sense, having anything to do with Jesus can bring you freedom and peace from the feelings in your mind as you continue to wait for your answer. No matter what, His love will chase you down.
Get your fill:
- Pray… then open your bible.
- Pray with one or two friends who will support and agree with you. Matthew 18:19
- Listen to worship songs throughout your day and prayer time. (Comment for suggestions)
- Download the Ending your day right app.
- Find a plan in the Bible app that suits you (21 days to beat depression is a good one even if you’re not all that depressed)
- Went to church? Was the last sermon amazing? Listen to it again during the week by asking the media team if there is a CD/MP4 or live stream information.
- Encourage yourself when there is no one and speak life. It works more than you know! There was actually a physical experiment that proves your words changes things. (Comment for more details)
- Pray alone at home and on walks.
- Remember that all things good and bad work together for your good if you live in Jesus.
- Make a list of the things that are actually going good right now on paper.
- Remember Jesus: He has overcome the world and has went through far worse. He gets you!

What You Need To Know!
What is a Sock Hop?
A Sock Hop was a dance event held for teenagers where they danced in their socks to avoid scratching the wooden gym floor with their shoes.
What dances were popular?
What did they wear?
This familiar Disney channel throwback shows some attire in this 50s themed episode- –https://youtu.be/3AcGjhjwnfc
Notice the high waist, belt, knee length, bottoms and short sleeves top
Sunglasses, stud earrings and tie-on head pieces seemed to be the thing! They sure did wear HATS
Men wore jackets 🧥
ust a few of the many facts about the 50s! TODAY, HopeNYC’s Dance Ministry is accomplishing so much and I hope many of you will support the Sock Hop! Kids are learning how to dance every Friday and worship deeper! Men, women, adults and children are
dancing every Sunday and creating an atmosphere of worship at the front of the altar during service.

HopeNYC is preparing to make this the best Christmas ever…for children overseas.
Build an Ark was the theme of HopeNYC’s 2017 Toy Drive! Hopers picked up a hammer and worked together to raise the funds to provide tons of toys (possibly an Ark-full)
I noticed the genuine cheerfulness in giving until the drive was over. Putting a smile on a child’s face has always been an important mission at HopeNYC. A child may be receiving their first toy this year. The toys will be off to the Caribbean this Christmas: Trinidad, Guyana, Jamaica, and Belize! High quality popular brand new toys. As someone would say “Toys you would buy for your own children.”
What makes this year even more exciting is that some of the Hopers will be going to the
countries to distribute these toys in person.
Special gifts were given to every participant of the Toy Drive so they won’t forget the time they got to Build An Ark.
HopeNYC has big plans for Christmas even in New York! Read my previous blog about the Christmas parade. Look out for info this upcoming month on www.HopeNYC.com or on the Facebook Page: http://www.Facebook.com/HopeNYC
