Blessed by Psalm 71:5

Posted on by Martin Corder

Recently we’ve had to do a lot of thinking about the age of the young people we reach.

It’s caused me to think of my own children who are maturing into young adults, building their lives and are on the edge of independence. It takes me back to those early years and the decisions I made when I was their age. It usually comes with a bit of regret when I think how much of my life I wasted pursuing unhealthy things. I missed out on what was good because what I thought was good was actually harmful. This puts a passion in me to encourage my children to follow God from the start. It’s a better path and they’ll be grateful later on. We can avoid so many hurts and pitfalls with long-term consequences if we do things God’s way. We desire the same for the kids of our Community. It doesn’t take long for a kid who doesn’t know God to build profound hurt and hardship into their lives. This drives us to reach them while they’re young and bring them hope and trust.
 
We want them to know the blessing of Psalm 71:5 "Lord God, you are my hope. I have trusted you since I was young.” Thank you for bringing hope and trust to lost and hurting kids!!
