Praise the Lord! Our YP have experienced the Lord this week! Here is a sharing by Sister Katherine:
I really enjoyed this week how near and dear the Lord is to us. Although in our daily lives we sometimes ignore Him or don’t feel His presence, we only need to turn to our spirit. This is particularly true in school when we talk to friends and learn. I’ve always wanted a best, best friend at school, someone you tell absolutely everything to that will understand, however, no one really understands and experiences what you go through except God. This week, I’ve learned that the Lord is my best friend and can be in all my other conversations with other friends as well, because he is always with me. All I have to do is open my heart. Praise the Lord!
This week, I also served the children and gained a lot through their meeting as well. They reviewed last week’s lesson about Elimelech (husband of Naomi) and I was really touched when they asked a question:
“For the past week, did you try to live your life according to God’s heart and God’s mind, when you thought differently in your own eyes?”
To be honest, this week I did not live according to God’s heart and mind. I acted on my own behalf when I lied about being on the late bus to get a bus pass instead of a tardy to school. It bothered me a lot afterwards. However, this week’s children’s meeting discussed Samuel and how he cooperated with his parents to fulfill God’s purpose. Like Samuel, I want to cooperate with the Lord this next week and just gain Him.
Hallelujah! We love the Lord!
If you’d like to add your enjoyment too-whether it’s from YP meetings, the material you’ve read, small analogies, something another saint has said, a hymn, or anything else- Leave a comment below! Hallelujah! We hope they help you grow in life this next week!
Praying about you all,
Christ as Life YP
