Hello to all and Happy MLK day, I am sure that all of you are excited to sleep in and have a day off from school. Ambler mentioned it to me the other day and it is crazy but most of you don’t have a single full week of School in January. That is crazy. I want to thank you for staying the course even though you don’t have school today. Way to go in checking into YDC! Today we have Morgan and an incredible story of staying the course and sticking with God even when everything looked completely bleak! I must say that Morgan is and excellent story teller, I know you will enjoy and be encourage by his trust in God.
The Challenge: So are you running in the race? Are you going for it and staying with it each day even when things look bleak. Morgan brings a great story of courage and trusting in God even when the days were the darkest. So what do you dream of? Do you run after your dream like it is possible even when others tell you that your dream is not possible. Today I challenge you to really think about what you dream of and process that dream with God. Make it a plan to make the dream come true, by trusting that dream over to God. Believe in His ability to empower you and sharpen you to achieve the impossible! Make it a point to live out the verse of the day as you run after you dreams and as you run after God.
Verse For The Day: Today our verse encourages us to run after God and to trust God in all things. It is a powerful reminder to me that we must put our mind to trusting God. Check it out 1 Corinthians 9:24 24 Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one gets the prize? Run in such a way as to get the prize. 25 Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last, but we do it to get a crown that will last forever. 26 Therefore I do not run like someone running aimlessly; I do not fight like a boxer beating the air. 27 No, I strike a blow to my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize. Let this verse encourage you, to get everything out of the way that Blocks you from trusting God with everything.
Enjoy your day off from school! Have a good time with family or friends, and push closer to God and run after the prize.
