I just am full of joy today. Today was a great day.
One of those days where a ton gets done and you’re just so proud of the work that you’ve been able to accomplish. Whether it brought a physical accomplishment and check-off, or it’s just something that’s off your chest.
I volunteer as a small group leader at my church middle school youth group called Genesis. I have a great group of 6th grade girls. Tonight the topic was insecurities. I was so blessed by our conversation. It was so Spirit-led, and full of deep questions and thoughts. I got to share with them what it means to follow Jesus, and how God can take our insecurities and turn them into beautiful things.
We wrote down all of our insecurities down on a piece of paper, folded them up, prayed together and on our own, then we tore up the paper to symbolize that we were giving our insecurities up to God. It was really quite profound to see these girls writing down things, private things probably, that they are struggling with.
Visual things always help me. And I was glad to be a part of tonight for them.
