“The Psalmist didn’t receive an answer to his lament: instead, the exercise of faith helped him to turn his heart in worship.”
Teaching Lonely Teenagers to Look to Jesus
As we seek to lead teenagers in the midst of depression and isolation, we must turn to the Bible as our resource for equipping them.
In a world that tells students to grin and bear it, put on a happy face, and veg out until you can’t name your feelings, Scripture sings a different song.
Psalm 8 paints a stirring picture of the God who is worthy of our worship …Overflow of the heart manifests in words of adulation and praise to our great God. This is worship.
Psalm 19 shows us the beauty of an honest, joyful obedience that will sustain us and our teenagers over the long-haul.
The more we remind our students of God’s faithfulness in the past, the easier our students will navigate their uncertain present.
Everyone wants to feel accomplished and celebrated and valued, but you have all of that already in Christ.
