Ruthie was my cousin. She was found dead last night by her older brother. She was 45. My heart aches. She had trouble after trouble in her life. I pray that God’s mercy was not lost on her…that she understood how much He loved her. I feel so sad.
Youth group went really well last night. No one ever asks questions, and the night I’m leading, I get questions. Go figure. It was awesome, though, because I think someone really needed to hear the answers I gave, if not the person asking the questions. I prayed that God would allow my words to flow and to minister to the kids, and I pray that even now the things I said were God’s words that will stay in the heads and hearts of those teens who I love so much. You know, if you’ve done things with a guy/girl, you’ve never gone so far that you can’t turn back. God is so full of forgiveness for His children and can make you clean…as pure as snow. (Snow used to be very pure!)
It’s easy to beat up on yourself when you screw up, isn’t it? DON’T! Just decide that you’ll do things differently from now on. Come up with a plan to help yourself do things differently. Call me, and I’ll help you come up with a plan. But for goodness sake, don’t keep screwing up…there is so much good waiting for you in life.
