I don't want this post to be one which will be read, agreed with and then forgotten. No! I want this to be a three-way-conversation between the author, the readers and God. Do not be afraid to share you feelings and possibly change them, they could be the key to bigger and better things.
You may be thinking, "What!? Is this going to be another one of those boring Christian lectures?" But stick with me here.
Most of Katie's Korner's readers are around the ages 13-16. There is a good chance that you fit into this category. If not, please continue reading because this may get you thinking.
So, there is a very good chance that you are a teenage girl! Awesome! Now I have some questions to ask you. What are you doing with your life? How close are you to God? and do you want to make an impact on your generation?
If you answered "yes" to the latter and yet have no idea what-so-ever how to accomplish it, here are a few tips.
1. If your youth group (or church) is in need of more encounters with God, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and walk up to a leader and ask them if there could be more of these events. You don't even have to have a date for it. It can happen in your own bedroom when you are praying.
2. If you feel that God has called you to ministry or to be a missionary, I encourage you to step out of your comfort zone and look into going on a missions trip or perhaps preaching a five minute message at your youth group. I know these suggestions sound scary but the will help you to reach your amazing future and impact others to do the same.
3. If you hate the fact that teenage girls are being constantly pushed to look perfect, dress a certain way, or being pushed to have a long score of boyfriends at a very young age, I encourage you to set up a young girls connect group, or even a blog on this subject and try to help it. God will bless through this.
The list does not just stop there! There is heaps more things you can do to impact your generation, to impact the world. However, please do not try to do these things on your own, you are going to need God at the centre of all this. He wants to use you to glorify his name. Do so.
Thoughts on this please?
