God Sighting

God Sighting

It’s VBS week! My favorite week of the year! Sara and her amazing team have spent nearly a year praying, planning, preparing, and praying some more – all to reach the children of our community in a real and impactful way. Each year the kids learn about “God Sightings” (those little moments in life where you can see His light shine through), and worship this morning was mine. 

I have the pleasure of being a “fly on the wall” in the back, running media. After three wonderful (some might say grueling) days, the adults seem to be fading fast while the kids are just getting settled in. It is a joy, a real God Sighting, to watch every volunteer put their all into their ministry and be the hands and feet of Jesus. Whether it is the kitchen team meticulously cutting homemade Rice Crispy Treats or the crew and station leaders meeting each child where they are, every act is done with love and compassion. 
 “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.” – 1 Peter 4:10

And then there is THIS: 
Proverbs 22:6 – “Start children off in the way they should go, and even when they are old they will not turn from it.”
“Let everything that has breath praise the Lord. Praise the Lord. – “Psalm 150:6
That pretty much sums it up. God is so, so good.
