God is ALIVE!

Things happen so wierdly. You usually plan on going to something with the expectation that it will be amazing, but it ends out being a total waste of time. Then again, the things you think will turn out bad, end up being the best time of your life. That's how I felt on friday. I expected to actually be pretty bored during our youth lock-in, but it ended up to be an amazing experience I can't explain. The worship was absolutely breath-taking, and the testimonies were so encouraging on my heart. Seeing people talk about God and what He is doing in their lives keeps me from doubting God's existance. As the youth worshipped, I held my hands up as high as possible and didn't care how tired I was. I just knew my heart needed to praise the one and only God that owns my life because He MADE it. I don't deserve or even have to be alive right now, but I am only because of the grace of Jesus Christ, LORD over all!

Come, let us sing a song
A song declaring that we belong to Jesus
He is all we need
Lift up a heart of praise
Sing now with voices raised to Jesus
Sing to the King

For His returning we watch and we pray
We will be ready the dawn of that day
We'll join in singing with all the redeemed
Satan is vanquished and Jesus is King



God, please help. I need Your help. I can't do this on my own. I can't do my devotions without the passion from You, and I can't pray to You without the Holy Spirit's truth and faithfulness. I can do nothing that serves You without Your help. It's all You. You instrument everything so that it falls in place. I'm not in the equation though. I haven't let You take hold of me and use me for Your work. My heart isn't fully devoted to You. Please take it and use it for Your glory because it's the only way thats good.
