Wonder what we’re all about?
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.
Dear Impact youth and it’s friends,
In the midst of a very busy period in the youth ministry, God has been reminding me of a very simple truth. He loves (LOVES) the time we spend, in silence, with Him. Jesus used to sneak off to spend time with his Father and he always found the quite place to do it. Whether that was up a mountain, or out in the desert. He found places where there were no distractions, it was just the two of them.
The ironic challenge of this is that, as we all know too well, the times when life is busy and over bearing are the times when its hardest to find that time and space. Yet, its in these periods where it is most important to rest in Him, and seek his help.
When a tree doesn’t get the water it needs to make it strong and full of energy, how can it produce all the fruit it needs to.
Lets make sure we let Jesus water us with his presence this week.
