Crushes, Pranks, Hormones & Phones
I went to CHARGE United tonight. CHARGE is Cross Point’s student ministry and CHARGE United (which is the first Wednesday night of the month) is our big night where students from both our Dickson and Nashville campuses come together.
George and his team are doing a great job of building and developing the student ministry at Cross Point. They are so passionate about helping these students develop into fully devoted followers of Christ… and yet have some fun along the way!
I love watching student dynamics. There is such a range of things going on between 6th & 12th grade. It really brings back some horrific memories, but as I looked around that room during worship I found myself praying for each of these precious kids. They have so much ahead of them.
So many choices.
So many hurts.
So many joys.
So many crushes.
So many heartaches.
So many hopes.
So many dreams.
I’m anxious for them. I want them to realize and experience God’s best for their lives.
And then I couldn’t help but laugh (inwardly) at the crazy things going on. The swarm of girls surrounding the obvious “heart throb” of the bunch. The quiet middle school girls huddled in the corner. The bratty middle school boys playing stupid pranks on each other. Cell phones EVERYWHERE!
Makes we wonder what I miss most about that era? How about you? Anything you miss about middle school or high school?
