January 2018

From Our Youth Director

             As I look towards a new year, I am getting my family ready for many events that we trust God to get us through.  As some of you know, my daughter requires facial reconstruction surgery for her overgrown jaw bone.  As my family and I support getting her ready for college, we are working on getting ready ourselves emotionally and physically ready for her surgery.  A large part of this is learning to be more dutiful in relying on God for everything.  I mean EVERYTHING.  One of the hardest things is to give up control over what we have going on in our lives and turning everything over to someone all-knowing and all-seeing who has the ultimate control over everything in life.  Sounds like it should be easy!  As a mom, I want to know everything and see that the doctor’s assessments are correct.  As a faithful Christian, I am to be at peace knowing that through God all things are possible.  What do you have in your life that needs to be handed over to our Lord?  Is it social drama with friends?  is it a family member’s illness?  Is it conflict about understanding with your parents?  There is one solution to any of your biggest concerns in your life: prayer.  Don’t start rolling your eyes quite yet.  It’s true.  The more you pray about the things troubling you, the more you are handing over your troubles to God.  Mind you, your troubles (whatever they may be) don’t go away.  My daughter’s jaw isn’t going to suddenly fix itself.  However, you will find that your troubles weigh less heavily, you can rejoice more, and above all you maintain a close relationship with our Heavenly Father. Pray with your heart, listen with your soul, and rejoice with all your being because you are loved.
