Last night, I had the pleasure of speaking to the 24/7 High School Youth Group at my home congregation, Richland Hills Church of Christ. Not only was I asked to speak, but I got to have my dad with me for our “All He Needs for Heaven” presentation, and I was given the opportunity to lead worship as well. The evening was a blast, and the students were so encouraging to worship with and to get to talk to. With their hands in the air, they praised at the top of their lungs, and I could tell that their joy was coming from deep within their souls. It was a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere, and the group’s passion for living a God-filled life was evident all around us.
It felt great to “be at home.” Joni, Hannah, and I attend Richland Hills, and speaking there always feels so right since we’re very literally talking to our family. Last night had a first for me, too, as I got to lead instrumental worship. I had a blast, and the band was wonderful to work with. I love that we can celebrate and worship our God in so many different ways, and I look forward to a lifetime of praising God in whatever way I can.
