We were meant for more

I have been saved by the grace and mercy of Jesus Christ. And if that ain't something to blog about, I don't know what is!
I have a passion for Jesus and the Church. Especially youth and missions!
Jesus is a light to follow when you're in darkness. :)
Been really meditating on this verse lately. I think this is such a perfect kind of description of what a Christian should be like. 

What I take from this verse is that we should love others, always lifting them up in love and showing kindness, we should always act in a way that is right in God’s eyes, and that we should walk closely to God in every step of our lives. 

God bless!

Happy Sunday!

How’s everybody doing today?

We had a great church service this morning. My youth pastor spoke, and his sermon was all about community in the church.

Being apart of a community of believers is so important, and I think we forget that sometimes. In Galatians 6:1-2 it says “Brothers and sisters, if someone is caught in a sin, you who live by the Spirit should restore that person gently. But watch yourselves, or you also may be tempted. Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ.”

God calls us to be apart of a church. To carry each other’s burdens. Because really, who better to understand the problems you’re facing than other Christians, who you can relate with? If you’re struggling, you’ll always have someone to talk to, and if you don’t understand something in the bible, you’ll always have someone to ask. It’s really just awesomely awesome for everybody.

So if you’re not already connected in your local church, get on that!! And if you’ve been putting other things in front of church or youth (i.e sports, friends, etc.) I really want to encourage you to start making God and the church number one priority in your life. Speaking from experience, I know when I started making God number 1, life just got a lot better. (Disclaimer: I’m not saying if you start going to church more, your life will be perfect.)
So find a church where they love Jesus, and love others and you’re set. I promise it’s worth it, if you really try and get connected. :)

God Bless you guys!!

The Ask/Prayer Box

So I’ve been getting some prayer requests from people recently and just want to say thanks for sending them in!!

I want you to know that I see all of them and I do keep them in my prayers!

The prayer box is always open for anyone, even if you think it’s silly, send it in anyway!! Prayer is powerful. :)

And if you have a cool God moment that you want to share, or a bible verse, or you just want to say hey, that’s totally awesome! Keep sending me stuff, I love it. :)

You guys rock. :)

Have you ever been bullied because of your faith? If you said no, just wait, it’ll come. And if you said yes, I know how you feel, trust me, I’ve been there.

Sometimes being a Christ follower becomes so exhausting, you start to ask, what’s the point? Your fears of the world hating you outweigh your desire to spread God’s word. And I can’t blame you. Giving up would be the easiest thing to do. When you’ve tried to get your friends to come to youth group/church and they laugh in your face, or when someone picks a fight with you on your beliefs, it starts to appear pointless. 

But Jesus says “If the world hates you, keep in mind that it hated me first. If you belonged to the world, it would love you as its own. As it is, you do not belong to the world, but I have chosen you out of the world. That is why the world hates you,” right there in John 15:18-19.

You have been chosen out of this world. You have been chosen to be a light for God. It’s not easy, and sometimes it’s not enjoyable but it definitely is worth it. But you have to trust and remember that God has a plan for you. “Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.” (Romans 12:2) He knows where you need to be, and if you let Him, He’ll use you to do incredible things for His glory. :)

God bless!

Well hello there,

If you’re reading this, that means you have stumbled across my blog.

Welcome! This is exciting, oh my gracious! :)

I’m 16-years-old and I live in the magical land of Canada. Where polar bears roam free and we all live off of maple syrup. Eh?

I’ve created this blog to share scripture and talk about real issues facing the teens of the church these days.

I think one of the coolest things is seeing teenagers be leaders in the church, inspiring others with their passion for God! It’s just the coolest thing, and I can’t wait to hear your stories and testimonies! 

I look forward to seeing what God is going to do through this blog. :)

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity. (1 Timothy 4:12)

God bless!
