1 Corinthians 12: 4-7 “Now there are different gifts, but the same Spirit. There are different ministries, but the same lord. And there are different activities, but the same God is active in everyone and everything. A manifestation of the Spirit is given to each person to produce what is beneficial.” 12“For as the body is one and has many parts, and all the parts of that ody, through many, are one body–so also is Christ.”
Ephesians 4: 1-6 “I, therefore, the prisoner in the Lord, urge you to walk worthy of the calling you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, accepting one another in love, diligently keeping the unity of the Spirit with the peace that binds us. There is on body and one Spirit just as you were called to one hope at your calling; one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.”
As these bible verses share, we are all a part of one body, the body of Christ. This August campaign, “Why I Sweet Sleep” is displaying just that. We want to gather stories from our friends and partners of Sweet Sleep who have joined together using their different gifts through praying, giving, and going.
What we ask you do to is share with us why you choose Sweet Sleep. Why do you choose a ministry centered around providing beds for the orphaned and abandoned children of the world? What makes that stand out for you when you are choosing to pray, give, or go in honor of these sweet ones?
In order to share your story, we ask that you participate with us in this simple yet very impactful campaign. All you need available is a piece of cardboard or scrap paper and a dark marker. Simply write pray, give, or go (just like in the video) onto the cardboard or paper, and then get someone to snap a photo of you holding it. After that, write a brief paragraph of why you choose to partner with Sweet Sleep in the way you chose (pray, give, or go). Once you’ve done those two things, just email an attachment of both to Stephanie, at Stephanie@sweetsleep.org
. Then your story will be featured on our Facebook page and our blog!
We are so excited about this, and are even more excited to read your stories. There’s something about encouraging one another in walking with Christ, and the Lord is using Sweet Sleep to do just that; building up a body of believers that are looking to serve, and in this case, serve children who are in need of a place to rest their head at night.
Thank you for being a partner of Sweet Sleep, and we pray that you would use this as an opportunity to expand His kingdom. By sharing with others, encouragement is what will come. Encouragement to others to get involved and be a part of something bigger than themselves and jump on board with serving the orphaned and abandoned children of the world! Praise the Lord for that!
Share this video along with the campaign itself with friends and family and get on board and share, “Why you Sweet Sleep!”
