A Better Tomorrow

January 17, 2019 | Author: | Posted in New Beginnings

Today’s devotional reflection on New Beginnings is about: A Better Tomorrow

11 ” For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for welfare
    and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.”

    – Jeremiah 29:11, RSVCE | NJB

A Better Tomorrow (New Beginnings Devotional Reflection)

Tim Keenan, a man living in Colorado, was inspired to recycle old mattresses. He started a business when he saw a need for the service—landfills in his area charge residents for throwing away mattresses because they don’t decompose easily.

Tim had the idea to recycle the individual components of the mattresses—selling the wood for firewood and the springs for scrap metal. He even recycles the foam and fabric, so nothing is wasted.

But that’s not all Tim does—he also wants to recycle lives, too. That’s why he hires men that have recently been released from prison or that are residents of halfway houses. Tim named his business, A Better Tomorrow Recycling—an organization that wants to changes lives, one mattress at a time.

Sometimes, it’s easy to label certain people as “broken”. It could be the single mom down the street, the former drug addict, or the man who was just released from prison. But God is in the business of transforming lives and creating better tomorrows.

God, thank You for the plans You have for my life!
Help me to be an encouragement to someone who needs to
know that You never turn anyone away.
Let me be a light and comfort to that person today.
In Jesus’ name, Amen.
