My new website

The new website that I have been working on is now up and running. The address of the website is www.revitalizeouryouth.wordpress.com. I will now be posting all new posts on that website. So I would encourage those who have linked to my page to change the link to the above address.
I haven't gotten all of my old posts on the new website yet, and I am unable to post all the comments I received on this blog to the new one.
Check out the new and improved Revitalize Our Youth, and tell me what you think!
God bless and take care!

Wow it's been a while...

I just wanted to let you all know that I'm in the process of switching from a blogger account to a wordpress account. So I haven't had a whole lot of time to get on here and write any posts or update and declutter this website. For that I'm sorry. I hope to get on soon and either finish up getting the new website in order, or write a new blog post.
But for now here's some Scripture for you to think on...

Ephesians 5:15-17 "Be very careful, then, how you live -- not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord's will is."

Galatians 5:1 "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."

2 Corinthians 10:3-4 "For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, the have divine power to demolish strongholds."

1 John 5:4-5 "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith. Who is it that overcomes the world: Only he who believes that Jesus is the Son of God."
God bless and take care!

Trust God in Life

I'm confused. I don't know what to do. I fear going forward...I'm determined not to fall back. I close my eyes to try and block what I see only to find out that the images in my head are just as clear as the ones I truly see. I try to harden my heart to the emotions I'm feeling, but only to find it's no use.
The only thing I can do is trust in God. He holds my future. I don't see nor do I understand what my future holds, but God does. And for that I'm thankful.
I'm tired. I'm always "on the go". I want to stop and just give up, but I must run with endurance the race that is set before me. If I stop I will loose and fall. I have to plug along even though it's hard.
So what if I'm confused? So what if I'm tired" So what if I feel I can't go on? I'm an overcomer! I put my trust in Jesus. I have lived most of my life for myself and my own selfish ambitions. I will live whatever life I have left for God. He's all I need. He's all I should ever want...

Does that sound familiar to you? Do you ever feel that when it gets to hard that you want to quit?
I know that sometimes life gets hard. Sometimes you may feel like you want to just give up. DON'T. When things get hard, trust in God. When you're confused, trust in God. When you're tired, trust in God, and He will carry you through.
Proverbs 3:5-6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him and He will make your pathes straight."

Christian Youth In Action (CYIA)

Hey you guys!
I'm sorry it's been so long since I've been able to get on here and update my blog. I've been extremely busy. This summer God's given me the opportunity to teach 5-day clubs (similar to a VBS) all over Oklahoma. I'll be working all summer with Christian Youth In Action (CYIA) which is also called Child Evangelism Fellowship (CEF) So far this summer 22 children have accepted Jesus as their Savior in the clubs that I have tought in. This week I'm teaching 2 clubs a day. Please pray that I'll have the right words to say to the children in the clubs, and that their hearts would be open to hearing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Thanks!!
I actually have a blog post written out on paper that talks about growing in Christ...I just haven't had the time to write it out yet. So as soon as I am able I will do that. =) God bless you guys and take care!
