Week 28 Report
It's Going to be Alright

Poverty in the UK is rising, with 14.4 million people currently living in poverty. It means being unable to pay bills; electricity, water, council tax, it means going without food to pay for school essentials, it means struggling to get to health care appointments without transport - it means so much more than going without. Poverty destroys lives, robs people of joy in the present and hope for the future, it means a lack of opportunities, tears relationships and families apart and causes loneliness and isolation. Many living in poverty believe that there is no way out.

Christians Against Poverty aim to reach everyone who is living in poverty, to bring hope back and belief in a better tomorrow. CAP can help reveal the path to a way out of poverty, and provide the comfort and support of God's love.

Lamentations 3: 22 - 24, 55 - 57 (MSG)

22-24 God’s loyal love couldn’t have run out,
   his merciful love couldn’t have dried up.
They’re created new every morning.
   How great your faithfulness!
I’m sticking with God (I say it over and over).
   He’s all I’ve got left.


55-57 “I called out your name, O God,
   called from the bottom of the pit.
You listened when I called out, ‘Don’t shut your ears!
   Get me out of here! Save me!’
You came close when I called out.
   You said, ‘It’s going to be all right.’


To those living without hope, the knowledge of God's love is something that can carry us through even the darkest times - even when we seem to have nothing, no future, we have God. God is there when we call out from the depths, He sees our suffering and suffers with us. He enfolds us in love and upholds us, and says that it's going to be alright.

This knowledge of a love and support that will never run out, that is new every morning, is what our debt coaches and visit team bring into the homes of all our clients. Many clients are not Christians and have not known God in their lives, or have lost their belief, they may not want to engage in prayer or hear about Jesus, but the love, patience and support of the CAP team throughout their journey out of debt can help plant the seed of God's love in their lives, reignite hope and the belief in a better future.
