So, I thought I would post this. It was my last devo for teen club


I fell, and you picked me up

I cried, and you held me

I sank, and you pulled me up

I drowned and you saved me.

You hold me close when no one is around

You watch my feet so I do not stumble.

You guide my path with light when it’s dark.

You hold my hand when I am alone.

You prevent me from harm.

You water and feed me.

You protect me.

You saved me.

Thank you for being my All in All

My strength, my hope

Thank you for being my God!

Sometimes we think we can do nothing, or we feel like we are falling, and nothing we can do will help. And that’s right, nothing can! The only way that we can do something is if God is there helping us. “Apart from me you can do nothing” John 15:5b Everyday each and every single one of us has so much to do. And everyday we do it. But do we ever sit back and think. “If it weren’t for God, I would not have been able to do this.” Or do we just carry on our day without thinking about it? There are so many things that have happened in each and every single one of our lives, that if it were not for God, we would have had a worse outcome. Someone used this analogy on me before. Sometimes we are holding a rock close to our face, and it looks huge. Almost too big to handle, but then we hold it farther away. And we throw it into the pond. It does not look that big anymore. We can look at it as, by ourselves this rock or problem is huge, but then we cast it away, and lay it down at God’s feet. Then it disappears because God took care of it! Just like Psalm 55:22 says “Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you, He will never let the righteous fall”. Isn’t it amazing that God is always going to be there to protect us? He will always be willing and ready to help. He is our strength and our hope.

A verse that I think is really neat is Isaiah 40:30-31. Were it talks about the fact that even us, who are young become tired and weak, and then God is there to give us strength! God will never let us crash and fall to the point were we can not get up again. Because although things might seem impossible by ourselves. Nothing is impossible with God!
