Our teens had Spring Break this week and they were an inspiration to me! Spring Break is a great opportunity for relaxation, sleeping in, playing video games, and catching up on all those Netflix shows we’ve missed out on, but I like to offer other opportunities for our teens that stick around Lufkin. From Monday through Friday a group of us got together each day to enjoy time together, play games, participate in activities, enjoy worshipping together and learning about the life God calls us to live, and to serve our Lufkin community. We served the Christian Information Services Center, The Winnie Berry Humane Society, The Mosaic Center, Godtel, and we even took time to clean up our neighborhood and serve a few members here at Central. It was an incredible week with a lot of laughs, some hard work, and really cool opportunities to see God move and work through us. We talked a lot about his life we have to live. How short it really is and how discouraging it can be to see all the great needs this world has and how little of a difference it feels like we’re able to make. We discussed the truth of this. Our lives are simply too small and insignificant to make a difference in this world by ourselves. But with God? What can we do when God is working and moving through us? In Matthew 17:20 Jesus says that with faith we can move mountains! That’s because when God is working through us all barriers are broken down and our weaknesses are made strong. I saw God work through our teens this week in simple conversations and joyful acts of service. I look forward to seeing the impact God will make through these experiences!
