Surprised by God!

It's awesome when God seems to show up unannounced! I just finished a meeting with about 10 of our youth ministry's 16 student leaders - we call them "apprentices." We worshiped for a while then talked about this semester in youth ministry. They were so much fun to be with; I have really been disconnected from actually working with teens and being with these kids tonight was a major "shot-in-the-arm" for me. I am more encouraged in my ministry from these short hours with them than I have been by all my own self-talk and the kind bolstering words of my friends. This has been a very tough season in youth ministry for me but I think I just had another small breakthrough!
