Let’s look up to our Father for guidance and strength and then look out to our fellow man to help him as we seek to look forward to great things in 2004!

Look forward to great things in 2004!

Looking back over 2003 is a great thing to do.  I remember wonderful times of just plain fun!  I think of the many activities that we engaged in!  Everything from paintball to water sumo wrestling at H203… from the WILDS to Farm Fest… from “bigger and better” to the amazing race!  We sure did have a lot of fun!  I also remember just the wonderful times we had just hanging out together.  Just being together is always fun!  I can’t help but remember the times of tragedy.  We all hurt with Floyd and Ryan with loss of their mother.  We were all shocked and dismayed at the sudden home going of Bro. Jim Cunningham and Bro. Johnny Dooley.  The Lord definitely proved Himself to be a shelter in the time of storm during these testing periods.  Looking back, I also remember the wonderful times of spiritual growth.  The Lord has done some great things amongst you guys!  I praise the Lord for His faithfulness!  Yes, looking back over 2003 is a great thing to do.  BUT, we need to look forward!  God has some wonderful things in store for us in the upcoming year.  We must all ask this question, “God, how would you have me change to be more like Christ in 2004”?  Let’s look up to our Father for guidance and strength and then look out to our fellow man to help him as we seek to look forward to great things in 2004!  I thank God for my youth group!  I thank God for each of you on a regular basis.  I love you guys…
