2 days removed from the last full weekend with my small group that was established in August of 2010, and I am spiritually rejuvenated emotionally drained, and sore as all get out.
We were with almost 1,800 middle school students singing at the top of their lungs about His Love… and I decided not to post one of my obligatory worship pictures here because there is no way it would visually depict the amount of life change it represents to these kids.
It would do a poor job of capturing the moment when a child realizes that there is a Love so great, a God so big, with Grace so abundant that no matter what people say to them and no matter what they’ve done in the past, they are loved. Or that moment of realization that even when their abusive background makes them think they could never be loved, they are freed from that slavery and they are loved because He created them – placed higher than ANYTHING the world has to offer.
Then it sinks in, and I put down my camera. It’s not just for them, but for me as well…
I truly am passionate about leading these boys, but I value more the lessons they are teaching me.
Ok, so North Point put these awesome clips together. I still believe this does not capture it all, but it gets pretty darn close!
