“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)
Today, Bent Creek Baptist Church celebrated Graduation Sunday. It was a joyful morning as we thanked God for these young people who are graduating from high school and moving on to college and greater service.
We also thanked God for providing our graduates with loving, caring families and friends who bestowed good guidance and served as positive role models. Their efforts have been rewards many times.
Tricia Goyer’s blog is a voice of hope and possibility for young people. Her prayer below reflects our hope, that they will start each day in conversation with the Lord.
“Dear God, thank you for a new day and a clean slate. May my focus each morning be set on you. When I worry about my plans, remind me you have my future in your safe and loving hands. Thank you for the wisdom you give me through your Word and the guidance of the Holy Spirit!
The graduating class of 2015.
