God, the Teacher; Me, the Learner of Lessons

Like I said, our youth group is doing the morning service in Oakes this Sunday. I am preaching. (*gulp*...I have done several sermons in youth group and for evening services in my church, but never a morning service in a different church). I am preaching out of Mark 9:14-27. God's Words are so powerful. I am scared I will mess up what God intended. Right now I am just trying to soak in the amazingness of God. He is still teaching me new things. I am learning that letting go is sometimes the best thing. It's never easy and not at all fun, nor making me happy, but in the end, it will have saved a lot of pain. I want to cry and the feeling in my stomach is very unpleasant. God is calling me to right here, I know it. I need to learn a lot still. And God is teaching me.

"You’ve stolen my heart
Yes, You have!
You’ve stolen my heart
Yes, You have!
You’ve wiped away the stains
And broke away the chains
Yes, You have!
With Your love You set me free
Three nails gave me liberty
So I’ll sing Your praise
My God, I’ll sing Your praise
Oh, with Your love
You forgave my sin
Forgot my past
And brought me back again
So I’ll sing Your praise
I’ll sing Your praise, yeah"
-Leeland, Yes, You Have
