After watching this video that a couple of my friends shared on facebook, I had to post it on here. It's on an issue that's very much on my heart - our young people in the church. The video asks hard questions. Why are so many young people leaving the church, not interested in living for the Lord, etc, etc, and came up with some very good answers. While I'm not a parent, this hits very close to home for me. I have 12 younger siblings who I pray for every day and long to see them all love the Lord and live for Him. Then there are many other young ones in my life who are very special to me, that I have the same desire for. I'm so thankful for the siblings and younger friends I have who do show Christ in their lives.
But I'm really tired of seeing others finding being cool more important than following Christ, and seeing bad choices being made, seeing them hurt others... My prayer is that they will want to do what is right because they love the Lord and want to please Him, more than anything. And I wish these young people would realize what an influence their behavior has on the next generation - we all have lots of little eyes on us!
Thanks for letting me share what's on my heart and please join me in praying for the future of our church - our young people. Ultimately they are all in the Lord's hands and we can only cry out to Him for them.
