My Heart was overwhelmed this morning as I watched our teens gather around the flag pole at the High School. Not ashamed to stand and bow their heads and offer prayers for their school, teachers, students and government. What an awesome site to witness, Praise be to God for faithful teens willing to go the extra mile for Jesus.
I want to share and read from Phillippians 1:3-6 (NIV)
I thank my God every time I remember you. In all my prayers for all of you, I will always pray with joy because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now, being confident of this, that he who began a good work in you will carry it on to completion until the day of Christ Jesus.
Joy is an integral part of our salvation in Christ. It is an inner peace and delight in God the Father, Son and Holy Spirit and in the blessing that flows from our relationship with them.
Joy in the morning! That's I what I felt as I stood and admired the teens while I prayed for them, walking in circles covering them in love and protection and thanking God for these teens.
