The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

Psalm 28:7, ESV

We often act like we can control our lives, doing what we can to make sense of the world.

Only with God are we strong enough for this life and to make it to the next. May we trust in Him and praise Him with all we are.

Pray for the Youth River Trip 2022

Tomorrow and Wednesday, I am taking 13 youth (and a couple adults) on an overnight kayaking trip. Our focus this summer is “Getting Away”, remembering to pray and rest in God.

Please join me in praying for these youth (and those who can’t go this time!) that they will get a taste of God and His strength, that we have fun and relax, but mostly that we find greater faith and strength in Christ.
