May 1. I cannot believe it is already May 1. April was a busy month ministry wise: dodge ball tournament, mission trip meeting, Ethos Retreat, Easter, Senior Mystery Trip, and a week long conference in FL...all on top of the weekly ministry, sporting events and building relationships! But God has proven faithful time and time again this month!
However, in the midst of the busyness, I can get caught up with "doing ministry" and neglect spending time with God. This past week, while at the beach in FL, I was reminded of the importance of stopping to just be with Jesus. On Wednesday morning we were given a few hours of solitude. To simply rest in Jesus' presence, to spend time soaking up his Word, and listening to his still small voice.
As the school year comes to a close, as you prepare for graduation, as this can be a hectic time of the year, I pray that you would prioritize your time with Jesus. I pray that you would be refreshed, refueled and renewed. And as you do so, you model for your kids the importance of spending time with Jesus.
Thank you for allowing us to partner with you in growing extraordinary students who love God, love people and make disciples!
