To the cutter.
To the lonely.
To the ashamed.
To the trapped, the abused and the exposed.
To the one who binges.
To the one who covers up.
To the one full of despair.
To the one who can’t hold onto to joy.
To the one bent down by the weight of it all.
To the one trying to find room to breathe.
To the one who is over it.
To the one hiding in a closet.
To the one wanting to be found.
To the one begging to be fully seen and loved.
“I will send out an army to find you in the middle of the darkest night. It’s true. I will rescue you. You are not hidden. There’s never been a moment you were forgotten. You are not hopeless. Though you have been broken; innocence stolen. I hear you whisper underneath your breath. I hear your SOS. I will send out an army to find you in the middle of the darkest night. It’s true. I will rescue you.” (Lauren Daigle, Rescue)
May we not sit on the sidelines and watch.
May we rise up and be part of your army that fights for those who cannot.
May we fight with you. For you. On your behalf. May we fight even when it’s hard. May we suit up and do the hard and holy things.
Care to Change is here for you. When you’re ready for a change, call us.
