Today was awesome! I really want to grow closer to God and when I went to youth group tonight He really touched my heart! We had a special prayer time and I really wanted God to show me that he was there! He really touched me when we started singing a song. I don't remember what the song was called but it said something about have God all around us and being closer to him. I started to cry and I was so happy! It was truly amazing! I am so thankful that my youth group is so good at bringing people closer and closer to God! I hope all of my friends feel what I felt tonight! Thank you youth!!!
God loves you, me and everyone and he wants us to love him back! Tonight I felt like I was extremely loved by God so I think these verses will relate a little:
1 Corinthians 13:
If I speak in the tongues of men or of angels, but do not have love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2 If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but do not have love, I am nothing. 3 If I give all I possess to the poor and give over my body to hardship that I may boast, but do not have love, I gain nothing.
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8 Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10 but when completeness comes, what is in part disappears. 11 When
I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I
reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put the ways of childhood behind me. 12 For now we see only a reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13 And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
