Virtual Chapel -3/18/20
Good Morning! This is the day the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.
STEP 1 – Read the Bible passage for today:
2 Timothy 1:7 “for God gave us a spirit not of fear but of power and love and self-control.”
STEP 2 – Read the message:
I think in this uncertain time, we are going to find ourselves in many new situations. Some of those situations can be kind of fun – teachers might enjoy online teaching in their pajamas, students probably enjoy choosing exactly what they want for lunch, parents might enjoy a short time off from driving to multiple events, freshmen are probably saying, “Yes! I get my cell phone back!.”
Some of those situations could also make us a little anxious – navigating the online education world, missing time with our friends, seeing some empty shelves at the grocery store, not being able to plan on events happening in the days ahead.
But there will also exist opportunities that we don’t often take advantage of – setting our own schedule, taking some ownership of our learning, stepping up to help our families. And while it might make us feel uncomfortable, there will also be opportunity to support and encourage others and to share our faith. Step out of your comfort zone and share the Good News that our God is watching over us. Tell it to those in your house. Email it to your relatives. Tweet it, Snapchat it, or TikTok it (whatever it is that you young ‘uns do) to your classmates.
You have been trained for this in your religion class, your family group, in chapel. You are ready – now go share this with others and “be fearless!”
STEP 3 – Listen to today’s song: Fearless by Jasmine Murray
STEP 4 – Pray.
Dear Lord, I know that you are watching over me during this uncertain time. Help me to see opportunities where you would have me share the news of your love with others. Give me the gift of being fearless when it comes to talking about my faith.
Please continue to take care of my family and the other VLHS families. In Jesus’ name, Amen.
Blessings on your day!
