God is Ever-Present

Do you ever feel alone and abandoned? These are the times when we struggle on our own, forgetting that there is Someone with us, ready to care, guide, and strengthen us. God assures us we are never without Him as He is everywhere at once and is ever-present. Because His Spirit fills the heavens and the earth, He has the capability to always be with us. We can call on Him with confidence that He hears our prayers and that His Spirit intercedes for us even when we don’t know how or what to pray. This attitude about God can give us the peace and comfort knowing that we are never alone and through His Spirit stand firm in our faith.

Psalm 139:7-10: “ Where can I go from your Spirit? Where can I flee from your presence? If I go up to the heavens, you are there; if I make my bed in the depths, you are there. If I rise on the wings of the dawn, if I settle on the far side of the sea, even there your hand will guide me, your right hand will hold me fast.”

How will we know God is with us?

The comfort, peace, and strength we feel when we call on Him is from His presence.

Will God’s presence ever leave us?

God’s Spirit is always with us. Matthew 28:20: “ … and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Is God ever too busy for us?

God promises in Hebrews 13:5, “… Never will I leave you; never will I forsake you.”

Pray

Give thanks to God that He is always with us.

Heavenly Father,
Thank you for being a loving Father that never leaves me. I give you all the praise for the peace and comfort that your ever-present Spirit brings. I pray all I do and say reflects your presence.
In your Holy name I pray,
Amen

Grandchild of the Month

Grandchild of the Month

My friend, Susan, was troubled by her visits with her grandchildren. It wasn’t chocolate cupcakes smashed into the carpet, crayon marks on the kitchen counter, or children’s voices reverberating through the house. The troubling part was she never had one-on-one time with any of her grandchildren. In order to create time with each grandchild, Susan enacted a “Grandchild of the Month” plan. Here’s how she did it.

Without Vision, the People Will Perish

In today’s culture there is a new kind of family springing up all over our nation. It’s called, “Grandfamily”. When the opioid epidemic slammed the US, a new epidemic followed shortly thereafter: the Grandparent’s epidemic. Nearly 90 % of the grandfamilies today were created due to an addiction and it’s changing the structure of families globally. We need to share new and exciting dreams with these children.

The World Has Changed – How Should We respond?

The shift in culture that America has experienced has been so sudden and strange that it has left many youth and children’s ministry leaders scratching their heads.
