Good morning all-
I'm off for my first college visit with my youngest son. I fear this year will fly by and in a few short months both my sons will be on their own. You know how you wish they could walk, brush their own teeth and go to bed, well I did and fast forward 17 years and both my sons are about to embark on a great journey.
If I think on it to long I become sad so instead I would rather look at the possibilities ahead. What will God ask of me, where will he send me and what will He expect of me? I'm sure it will be things like writing, speaking, mentoring and proclaiming that He exists. There is no greater joy than to know that He will fill in the gaps and my adventure has just begun. With that being said I still have to guide my two men, pray for them and send them off with confidence, pray I do just that.
Our job is never done with the younger generation. They are the future and will propel this world into light or darkness. They are the future leaders, pastors, presidents and dictators. They need our time, our wisdom and our direction. Love should be taught young, yet many never have this. At least not until they find Jesus. It's important that we don't forget to pray and to hold up those that are following Christ with their lives. We prayed for the youth yesterday and it reminded me of the people who invested in me, loved me and believed in being bold for Jesus. Without them, I probably wouldn't be writing this blog. They believed in the true meaning of love and when they saw a little lamb floundering, they took her in, guided her and sat with her while Jesus did the rest.
We need to be praying for the up and coming and asking Jesus to guide them. We need to be praying for ourselves and instead of finding love in things or man, find it in the arms of our Savior. That kind of love is worth more than gold, diamonds or even moon rock. (just a side note: moon rock is so valuable and the US has a few choice pieces that if we sold it, we would considerably lower our debt, instead it sits under lock and key, hmm) lets not keep the most precious jewel on display, let's share His love and invest in what counts! Love conquers all things and we know it because Jesus loves us when we are the least of these.
Take heart my sisters and love someone today. His love can raise an army of leaders, may He do so with the next generations! Please pray for countries all over the world. Natural disasters are occurring, people are dying and soldiers are fighting. It's time we love people more than we love ourselves.
I'm off but remember love conquers all!
1 Corinthians 13 NIV
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
My prayer today:
Lord let us love, let us live, let us proclaim You! In Jesus name, AMEN
