Impact Youth Ministry exist to share the way of Jesus with our friends and family, to show them His love and to grow passionate followers of God who seek to worship Him with their whole lives.
At our recent YPF ‘encounter’ evening, someone left a note for me with 2 verses on them. They both spoke to me and meant a lot to me. One of them was this verse.
Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken.
It’s a huge huge thing to be able to say, ‘I will not be shaken’.
Throughout your life, you will face many things (big & small) that will seek to ‘shake’ you. Things that seek to unsettle your peace, to undermine your confidence, to upset your priorities & to break you down. It is only by rooting yourself in Jesus, who is your rock, your salvation and your fortress that will not be shaken.
Tons of love,
A few things to draw your attention to:
