Many of us can relate to the proverb, “Don’t borrow troubles from tomorrow.” This is especially true with the men that come to Potter’s house. It is easy to spend a lot of time worrying about the little details of life and trying to resolve them in their minds before they actually have to go through the experience. But what we often don’t realize is this is actually a profound waste of emotional energy.
How do you start over when you lived a lifestyle that destroyed every part of your life? You may have jeopardized your health, squandered resources, broken relationships or put yourself in a position that makes it near impossible to climb out. Others wonder why you don’t despair or give up. The fact is many have given up. But the students who come to the Potter’s House have caught a glimpse of what faith in Jesus is, and they are eager to learn more about His plan and purpose for their lives.
