Yeah, I know that we, as youth leaders, parents, students, Christ-followers, strive to seek God’s face constantly. That’s good. Keep that up. I just figured that in this first week of a new year, it might be good to push all of the “stuff” out of your head and just simply listen to God.
You’ve got youth meetings to plan. You have to figure out how to keep momentum in the youth group until the end of the school year. OK, but just for a little while, don’t worry about that. Seek God.
You’ve spent more than half your budget and you have more than half the year to go. You have to price out service projects for the summer, and then start to promote the projects. Good stuff. Take care of that later and just pray for a bit.
You’ve got students that get it and students that are drifting. You need the skill set of a psychiatrist, sociologist, teacher, preacher, poet and possibly hip-hop artist. Yup. You got all of that and more to deal with. Stop now though, and try like crazy to hear God.
My prayer in this new year is that by the power of the Holy Spirit and in the name of Jesus Christ, you are blessed to walk a while with your God.
Happy New Year.
