Our young people get together every Monday at 7pm for prayer..
Well, we were told we are going to have some of the youth speak to us from their hearts. :) I got a text and guess who was one of the speakers?? Yessss, me. I was so nervous when I got up there.
I'll write what I talked about for you all to know lol
*side note* I didn't say everything I wanted to because I was a nervous wreck..
Basically, my uncle (youth pastor), had told me to talk about what I told him a couple Sundays ago, encourage the youth, God's going to use them, and talk about what's going on in the spiritual realm.
During pre-service prayer on a Sunday night, I couldn't really pray for the service. It's like I couldn't get in the Holy Ghost with that "topic" through prayer. I tried a couple other topics like praying for the lost and for my family & friends. It still wasn't working.. So I began to pray for myself, which I felt like it was selfish lol but it apparently wasn't so. I believe that God told me, "This is what I want to do with you."
There were two different pictures/clips that popped in my mind right after He said that. The first was me speaking to a group of ladies and the second was me speaking to a group of young people.
(The funny thing is, I looked just like I do now. Lol the same everything.)
Every young person has a purpose. I believe it. Of course, you won't do what God has for you if you aren't doing right. We have to be going the right way (that narrow path to Heaven). In our generation of young people, there are going to be preachers, pastors, preacher's wives, and missionaries. I can already see it! Yes, there are those special young people who might have "more annointing" on them, but I KNOW that God wants to use every one of the youth! Even the one person who is on the "edge." If they get their life right, God is going to show them what they need to do for Him.
I have a bookmark in my Bible that quotes Jeremiah 29:11. I don't know what version it is (it's not KJV), but it says, "For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord, 'plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."
God has a future for every single one of us!
I would really like to expand what I said last night. (Put more scriptures and examples. Tell about people who felt what God said they needed to do. Etc)
Any suggestions?? I'd really appreciate it.
God bless you all,
