I needed yesterday so much.
On Sunday morning, the weather was pretty bad for this area. Some spots on the road were slick, but way better than we “yankees” are used to. The whole way to church, we were praying that we weren’t going to arrive and find a note on the door saying that services were canceled.
Luckily, we arrived and service was on. I was *so* glad, because yesterday morning, we got to hear a young man’s very first sermon.
Jacob, the son of our dear friend Brother Tim, and the reason that Parker’s middle name is Jacob, has been called to preach. He announced it at the last Youth Night a week ago this past Saturday. Our Pastor asked him to preach his first message yesterday.
When Jacob got up there, you could tell how nervous he was, but after just a few minutes, you could just feel God’s presence, and see Him inhabiting Jacob. He didn’t preach long, but for the few moments that he did preach, it was certainly powerful.
We are so blessed to be in a church where there are kids like Jacob who can be a good role model and a good influence on my kids. The majority of the kids in our church have such good hearts. They’re not perfect, but you can see that they’re trying.
I am so proud of Jacob and his desire to spread the Word of the Lord. I pray that God will bless him in everything he does and that through him, many might come to know the Lord as their Savior.
I’ll be adding the *big* giveaway tomorrow morning, and doing a few other things on here. I hope you’ll stick around and participate! 🙂
