“And all these blessings shall come upon you and overtake you, because you obey the voice of the Lord your God:”
Each and every one of us wants to be successful and prosperous in life. We all have different definitions of success and different starting points, but no matter what the status of each one of us is, we all strive to reach a life of blessing.
We all remember the piggy bank we had at home where we would put coins in every time we received a gift from our parents or relatives. Every so often we would open the piggy bank and count the coins. Then we would think about what we could buy with all the coins we saved. Now we are not counting coins we have saved, but blessings. Think of every coin you have received in your life as a blessing you have given to someone in your life. Now is the time to make use of these blessings.
It doesn’t matter if you are rich or poor, you can still be full of blessings. Blessings do not come only in the form of economic wealth. Rather, blessings come in the form of joy, health, contentment, love, financial stability, well-being, satisfaction, appreciation, generosity, and gratitude for what we have.
The best thing we can do is make our very existence a blessing to others. If you always strive to be kind to those you meet, generous with your resources and help when you can, you create blessings in other peoples’ lives. When you bless others, the blessings will come back to you.
This is what VFI is all about. When you partner with us, you become part of the blessing, and in return, God pours His blessings on you.
Since the beginning, our goal has been to create a support and blessing system for people who have reached a state of difficulty or crisis. We offer support, funding, resources, and other small blessings for those who need it most: we feed the hungry, we provide for the poor, and we celebrate the lonely and forgotten in our world. In return, we have seen some of the most beautiful and honest acts of love from those around us. We are repeatedly reminded that the Lord's love is so great and His blessings are beyond our expectations or imagination. When we show up and give blessings to others, God shows up to bless us in return.
Giving blessings to others does not detract or deprive us of anything. Blessings are not limited, they are limitless and there are enough of them to go around.
Each one of you is a blessing. Your prayers and financial support are greatly appreciated, and we want you to know how special you are. We feel your presence with us in every achievement and blessing we give and receive.
“Blessed are those who hunger and thirst for righteousness,
For they shall be filled.“ -- Matthew 5:6
We hope that God’s blessings never stop pouring into your life and that you always have the presence and peace to recognize them. Please continue to help us bless others by donating here.
May the Lord Bless and Keep You,
