I sat back and listened with a huge grin on my face. Around the circle sat about 8 teenagers talking about what method they should use to read the Bible in a year. The 17 year old girl, a natural leader, was the initiator and the younger guys were caught up in the excitement. The kids planned and planned and then looked to the 2 twenty-something church leaders for approval. One of them brought up the idea of a memorization plan and that was approved by the kids. A Facebook page to keep us accountable? Meetings on Saturdays? Done and done.

These ideas seem to be just pouring out of the youth right now. The Holy Spirit is working big time around here. I'm not putting out ideas for projects or events or commitments. I just want to sit back and say, "Bring it on!" I'm here and available to help in whatever way I can- but all initiative is coming from others! "Sure, I'll sign a contract to read my Bible with you in a year." "Please use my house for your girls' meeting." Then today, a school mom asked if she can show the Dobson parenting video series to the other moms in her child's grade. She's doing the inviting and planning. "OK!!"
What will God bring in these next 24 hours??
