To The Youth Leaders

Standard

I’ll always be astounded by how God works in our hearts enabling us to put others before ourselves because for many (including myself), it doesn’t come by default. These people, they don’t get paid to do this—almost every week, they meet to discuss ways to draw young people to Christ; there have been times when they would go hungry when funds were not enough; they sacrifice time with family, friends, and rest; they endure scoldings from parents for doing church stuff; add to all these their being underappreciated. Some of them hold full-time jobs, the rest are students—meaning their hands are already full, but despite it all, here they are, pouring their hearts out…

“Dear Youth Leaders, know that what you do is creating an impact so great that it can turn things around for so many young people out there. I, for one, know that doesn’t seem like so most of the time, but your impassioned endeavors are changing lives everywhere. Keep at it!”

The Wind Beneath

Standard

Day 011 January 11When schedules get tight, workload gets heavy, sleep becomes elusive, we thank God for the people who understand and support us all the way. They make our burdens bearable. We know we are blessed because we have them by our side. Their just being there is enough to overwhelm us in a positive way. We are only able to go on with whatever we’re tasked to do because of them. They’re the wind beneath our wings.

As for me, it’s always been my family who has sacrificed a great deal in order for me to do what I love to do. They have allowed me to spread my wings wide enough to get past through what’s in front of me. Aside from family, I thank God for friends who also extend their support in some ways.

P.S. I thought I had many Facebook likers; but after taking a second look, all I had was my mother!
