To think I could have missed that!

Last night four of us from Wesley Chapel went to the Frankfort Middle School gym.  240 teenagers and a couple of dozen ‘grown-ups’ had worship together.  We sang, heard a relevant message, and saw pictures from the teens’ work day.  They are in the area with “Group Cares” – the youth mission trip arm of the Group Publishing company.  25 or so of them arrived early to get ready for all the young people to show up Sunday afternoon and those 25 came to church here on Sunday morning.  They invited us to their nightly evening worship this week at 7:30.  I know from experience that worship on the last night will be better than worship on the first night and the first night was awesome.

Sometimes I just thank God for the way He works things out.  It is entirely possible that all those young people could have been here in Short Gap and I could have not known anything about it.  It’s entirely possible that the young people from our church who are going to go and be moved this weeek, young people from our church who might even one day go on a Group Cares mission trip, would never have done that if God hadn’t worked things out to let us know they were in our community.

We are going to Oklahoma next week.  I don’t know what’s going to happen, but I know it’s going to be awesome.  And I know I don’t want to miss it.  Don’t let life pass you by.  When God offers you an opportunity, don’t miss it.  I’m not going to miss worship this week at the middle school.  It’s like a revival.  You can join me at 7:30 any evening through Friday.  And bring young people.
