Sometimes it can feel like there is nothing good going on around you.
Do ya feel me?
My heart is all kinds of broken tonight for teenagers in this town who are hurting.
For teenagers in this town who are doing the hurting.
For moms who have lost complete control of their kids.
For parents who are teaching their kids false truth, after false truth, after false truth.
For teenagers (and parents) who are standing up for actual truth and being made fun of because of it.
Sometimes it feels like there is no one else besides you standing up for truth.
Elijah felt the same way in 1 Kings 19. He thought he was the only one left doing the right thing.
Then God spoke.
God told him he was not alone.
There were thousands others who were still choosing God.
Today, I need to hear about the other people who are still choosing God.
About the other people who are choosing to live their lives according to God’s Word, not whatever feels good to them.
This week has been filled with people claiming they know what truth is, when it is simply based on their feelings, or their desire to follow what people around them are doing.
God’s Word is truth.
I wanted to encourage you tonight to look around you and find the good.
It is around us, we just need to look for it.
There are people who are excited about their relationship with Christ!
They have found his love and it is real. It is life changing. It is incredible.
I wanted to tell you about this amazing ministry called Delight.
It started with this incredible mom and her daughter (I adore these girls)
This is their heart:
I have the huge privilege of being one of the leaders for the retreat in Washington this year!
I am like totally beyond excited and can hardly wait to be a part of it!
This is designed for girls ages 14-20 who are pursuing creative arts. There are community groups all over the country as well as a huge online community!
Do you know what this shows me?
I am not alone.
When I feel like there is no good.
Like I am the only one making right choices.
When I am the only one who understands truth.
I am not alone!
There is still good.
Maybe you are feeling like you are the only one standing up for truth.
Maybe you feel like you are alone, and there is no hope.
You are not alone!
Look around you. Find other people who are living for Jesus!
They are out there. You just have to find them.
And when you find them?
Be a part!
Be the difference this world needs.
Be the one who stands up for truth when no one else is.
We are in this together.
And together, we can do amazing things.
There is still good.
