So much goodness!

Tonight at youth group and the last week at camp have reminded me of why I wanted to work with high school youth. The kids shared about their experiences this past week and what God has been doing in their lives. I can't explain the joy and excitement I feel when I hear of a student seeking after God with everything they have. A couple things we heard tonight...

"I opened my heart up to God a week from last Tuesday and now I'm like totally obsessed with my Bible."

"I didn't think I'd leave camp accepting Christ, but that last night, Rich said everything I had prayed for. I knew it was from God."

"I realized I had been letting other people fill up my cup... but now I can let God fill me up."

My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. – Psalm 73:26

God's word is full of so much goodness!!! Have you read this book?? It's amazing! I have definitely found a new love of God's word lately and I'm holding onto it as much as I can! The more I read, the better it gets! Oh yes.
