The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing. - Zephaniah 3:17 (NRSV)
When I was eight years old, I asked the Lord into my heart in Sunday school and soon discovered the joy of singing and dancing for Jesus. In fifth grade, when the kids bullied me, I was mocked, laughed at, and made fun of. I often cried all the way...
The Lord rejoices over me!

I join many of those who will pray for you as you seek to discern what you are called to be at this moment. May God grant you the courage to fulfill that calling. May we all open our eyes and see the misery, open our ears and hear the cries of God’s people, and, like God through the Lord Jesus Christ, be incarnate amongst them.”
