Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. ~1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
I love July.
First, I am a warm weather person, so the heat doesn’t really bother me. I love the 4th of July. I am still a fan of blowing things up…the bigger the better.
But, my favorite part of July is our annual High school Mission trip. Knowing that God is going to do some extraordinary work through these amazing kids and adults is something that I can’t put a price tag on.
Lives are changed, expectations are blown away. Grace, forgiveness and love become common, all because God is allowed to work in ways that don’t always happen in our day-to-day routines. If you have never done a week of service, do so before you can’t. I promise you will be a different person.
