As I sit here at youth prayer night, I am amazed at what God has done in out youth group. It is not the same group that I was a part of when Paige and I started helping Tessa and Wilson about a year ago. God has done so much! Each of the youth has been impacted by God in an indescribable way. He has transformed them. They are on a great journey towards something bigger and better. He has put a spirit of worship and praise in their hearts. He is teaching them how to pray and communicate with Him. Awesome!
Thank you O Lord for the work You have begun. I ask that you continue to work in them and through them. God give them wisdom and power to do great works in Your Name. Let them impact those around them at school, in their family, their friends, and even us a their youth leaders. O God do a work! Yes Lord move like a mighty wind. Transform us into the creation that you want us to be, the way You designed us to be.
God, You made us in Your image; You gave us the ability to love; and You gave us the freedom of choice. Help us to choose to serve You. Help us to love you and to love others-even our enemies. Help us to love like You love and forgive like You forgive. Lord, let us bless others. You have surly blessed us; now let us bless others!
Do a great work in us Lord.
In Your name, AMEN!
I am thankful for the position God has place me in at Harvest Church. He has place me and my wife in a place where we can impact the lives of teenagers.
Over the past few years, God has taught me many things. He has often used certain people to teach me different lessons that he wants me to learn. I am thankful for those people. Just to list a few (in no particular order): Bill Baldwin, Harry Jones, Dwight Mabry, John Huneycutt, Jesse Herring, Daniel and Helen Seagraves, Ruby Benge, Karen Marthers, Robert and Wendy Britt, and Lonnie Bateman. These individuals have taught me what it means to be a youth leader.
Now, I get an opportunity to serve with my wife alongside Wilson and Tessa Moore and Jimmy and Laura Anderson. We have an awesome youth group that is growing in the Lord. Over the past year, these teens have come a long way. They learned so much about the Bible, loving and caring for others, worshipping the God of creation, and so much more!
It means so much to me to see these guys growing in faith. God is truly raising them up to be worshippers, disciples, and servants. God is adding more and more youth to our group every month! It is so great to see visitors come into our weekly youth meeting.
God loves young people so much and He can really use them for the building of His kingdom. And it is an honor to be used by God to train these teens up in the love and power of Jesus’ name.
I love and care for each of the youth that I get to serve with!
