Today I had the honor of speaking at our last chapel of the year. It was a moment to collectively reflect, ponder, and celebrate all we’ve been through, how much we’ve learned, and how much we’ve grown in understanding what it means to LIVE FREE from
DOUBT, FEAR, SHAME, LONELINESS, PREJUDICE, PRIDE, GUILT, INSECURITY, JEALOUSY, & WORRY
I shared with the students what God has been teaching me, how He continues to shape my heart—even through the challenges, tears, discouragement, pain, frustration, doubt, and struggles of this year—and how He is revealing the things I’m clinging to that keep me from truly experiencing His freedom.
The best part of the chapel was the open mic, when many students stood up in front of the entire junior high and shared how God is freeing them from various struggles. It was incredibly encouraging and Christ was glorified through each student’s testimony! God is BREAKING CHAINS!
I shared this music lyric video with students, and I encourage you to take time to listen and be strengthened by it:
My prayer is that each one of our students experience the amazing freedom that is found only in Jesus. I pray we can all be released from the chains that enslave us to sin and let go of the things holding us back from experiencing the fullness of the promises of God. I pray that our students will each learn to stand firm, seek the Lord with all their hearts, and be reminded that nothing in this world will satisfy us like the love of Christ.
Regardless of the circumstances that surround us, may we embrace our freedom and walk in the newness of life promised to us in Jesus!
Have an incredible summer and look forward to seeing you all back in the fall!
