The springboard of Newday
Tuesday 17th August 2010 we arrived home from Newday physically tired but made more alive in Christ. After a week of incredible encounters with God, brilliant food, great friendships built and not to forget the losing of one marquee, there comes a decision that each one of us have to make; will I use Newday as a springboard for the rest of the year, alllowing God to do bigger and greater things through me or will I go back to my old life and wait a whole year to enjoy Him again?
The struggle that many of us seem to go through each year after a high like Newday is how to 'keep it going'. I want to encourage you to take a hold of all that God spoke to you about at Newday this year, to intentionally push after God this coming year and give Him your best. Don't wait around for the whole year wondering what could have been but rather press in to God's presence, taking risks at school and college. See what amazing things God could do through you.
Wouldn't it be exciting to take to Newday next year an extra coach because we stepped out with boldness this year and saw loads of our mates wanting to know more and having already encountered Jesus. You are the one that Jesus has equipped and sent, you're the one He is LONGING to see take His gospel to your school and college. God loves you so much that He hasn't just saved you but He's made you part of His incredible plans. Let's be those who live in his plans, who enjoy God and use the opportunities He gives us.
Step out this year, don't leave it till Newday 2011. Give God all that you've got and enjoy His faithfulness, goodness and grace to us.
