Hello Everyone! I am so excited to be back on the air! :)) Youth dedication week was great and all the youth from FPC did really well with fasting and staying away from social networking all week! Youth dedication ended tonight with each person in the youth group quoting a scripture. I quoted Psalm 119:10-16...
With my whole heart have I sought thee; O let me not wander from thy commandments.
Thy Word have I hid in my heart that I might not sin against thee
Blessed art thou, O Lord; teach me thy statutes
With my lips have I declared all the judgments of thy mouth
I have rejoice in the way of thy testimonies as much as in all riches
I will meditate in thy precepts and have respect unto thy ways
I will rejoice in thy statutes; I will not forget thy Word
I have a desire to grow in a love for the Word of God. With all my school/work responsibilites, I do not have much time for computer recreation and I do not even have a facebook account; still by taking out blogging/reading blogs this week I had some extra time which I used to pray a little more, read my Bible, and memorize His Word. The result of youth dedication week for me was a desire for more of His Word!
There were 2 girls in our youth group who testified about youth dedication week for them. Both of them used the extra time they had this week to work a little extra on their jobs instead of getting on facebook. Both of them were given a raise THIS WEEK. God honors the sacrifices we make to Him!
