Today I’m back home, but I’m still reeling from everything that happened over the past week. From one side of Illinois to the other, I’ve got to see how God is moving in the lives of both recovering addicts and the average teenager. It was encouraging but it also left me anxious, because there’s so much more to be done. This is an extreme example, but I worry about every one of these kids getting reached now so they don’t have to be reached at Teen Challenge later.

However, there’s a peace of mind which beats my anxiety. For one, I know it’s on God and not me. Two, the number of people and events he’s using to reach this fallen world is so much beyond me. I’m just one little part of a much larger picture, not even a grain of sand on the world’s largest shoreline. And finally, despite all the brokenness around us on this side of eternity, there’s a lot of beauty and fun to be found as well.

Bottom line: God’s got this and I’m learning to trust him, do what he says, and enjoy myself along the way. Will you join me today in hearing his heart for people and doing what we can to help just one more today?
