I saw this and thought it was a great topic of discussion so I got to thinking about what I and probably you hear on Sunday or whichever day it is that you worship. For many of the people I know and sometimes for myself we worship on Saturday. For us Saturday is a time we can worship as the worshipper. That is because on Sunday morning we my Cowboy and I take church to a group of teenager boys that are in prison. Ours is not the regular church 'crowd'. Ours are 15-18 year old boys searching. Many of them do not know what they are searching for. There are a few that don't come but; most of them do. They are seeking and so the sermons reach out to them.
Here' are a few slides and thoughts . . .
The One . . .
Live in God . . .as a Christian, or a Christ Follower or as a Seeker, whatever you call yourself. Wherever you are in your relationship with God it is about Living with Him now and for Eternity . . .
Fully Rely on God . . . I really can't take credit for this photo. I saw this particular verse on a Wordfilled Wednesday Post by Mircles Can Happen. If you have the time I would love for you to visit them. They are a home for young boys that have been in jail it is is located in Iowa they have an amazing ministry. When I say thier photo I knew the verse was perfect for this photo of one of my Drama Teams. I so wish I could show the videos of them. They do an amazing job sharing themselves and performing in church.
Todays message was a little different and caused many of the boys to really think . . .
I am trying. I am trying to Pray more. I am trying to listening more.
I pray that the words of warning I heard today will help me and the others that heard them to listen closer to God. And, I pray that since you visited here today that something written here has helped you.
I pray that you will remember me and my Cowboy as we share Gods love and Hope.
And, I pray that you'll take a minute to remember a couple of prayer requests that the boys wrote today. Sometimes their words, their thoughts and their hurts well I cannot describe how I feel. Here's what they said . . .
"I want to ask 4 forgiveness. I need you to help me. help me to learn what my mission is. Help me to change into the man I should be. Help me to get my stage and maintan a positive attitude."
Last week this boy asked for forgiveness because he used a Ouqui Board. We had been talking about the passage of scripture about not talking to dead people.
"Dear Heavenly Father,
Help Zane to get better and let me have a good birthday. Amen" Today is this boys birthday. He and some of the other boys love our 4 year old grandson. Zane was sick on Friday with a virus and had to go to the emergency room. They made a card and we took to him after church.
"Pray for my Uncle that he grows a stronger relationship with Jesus Christ that he gives us spirtiual wisdom and insight to make it another day. I pray for my little girl Carsyn and my brother." This young man was saved only a few Sundays ago. He has been in and out of jail for a few years. He told me very briefly last week that his Uncle got saved. He was so happy and excited. He will be leaving and going to live with the uncle.
Thank you for stopping in and spending a few minutes. Thank you for your prayers.
May your Journey be Blessed . . .
