Kim, from my Bible Study Class, found this fun cartoon. Since we had been giggling in a previous class over the parody poem "Buttprints In The Sand," this was especially apt. I am sure that MANY times God has to D-R-A-G us for a while to keep us on track... ;)
Here are the layouts I created for last week's lesson. I wanted to show the difference between choosing GOD'S Value System vs. that of the World. The photos I used are inspirational moments through our church over the last 6 months - a HUGE food drive, clothing drive, money for wells in Zimbabwe, CIY Youth Group Weekend, Hands Against Hunger Food Packing Event, and the inspirational funeral for Jessica Elam.
This week we talk about making the DELIBERATE CHOICE of choosing Joy...
JOY results from our deliberate choices to THINK differently, ACT differently, and FEEL differently. It is not an accident - it is the fruit of our choice to place our trust in God.
One of the cutest things is to watch a group of preschoolers sing together - whether it be at a church or school concert, their excited faces and actions are just to precious. The song below is a popular one for Vacation Bible Schools. Just imagine the JOY of the kids singing as you watch. THAT joy is what we are striving for. :)
Remember, God LOVES YOU. He will never love you any more than He does now, and He will never love you any less. You are loved - in spite of any dumb choices you might make. ;) That, in itself, should bring you joy.
I hope you'll share your layouts with me!
Have a blessed week!
