I can't believe that June is over already! I have some thoughts as we start July:
1. THE BIBLE: I don't mean to sound like a broken record, but are you reading the Bible on a daily basis? With all the different voices we hear in life, it is essential to regularly be in God's Word if we want to grow in faith. We need to hear from God. Psalm 19
2. PRAYER: When you need prayer, who do you ask to pray for you? We all need to people to pray for us. Too often, we do not reach out for prayer support.
3. A STORY: I went to Colorado Challenge last week (had about 300 youth & a bunch of Timothy students were there as well). We did lots of great activities like rappelling, white water rafting, high ropes course, paint-balling, and more. The speaker was former TC Bible teacher, Jeff Klein. As he shared in the leaders' meeting one morning, I was impressed that I should ask him to pray for me, especially since we both have the Timothy connection. Afterwards, I talked with him and then I asked him to pray for me–that I would be the Bible teacher God wanted me to be. The prayer was one of those special moments. I was overwhelmed with a sense of God's presence and power during the prayer. By the end of the prayer time, my vision was blurred but my heart was strengthened. Who can you ask to pray for you?
