Decisions make up who you are…
Sunday morning arrives, you debate internally if you should get up or stay in bed. You opt to get up. Every action taken from the moment you wake up, to the moment you fall asleep is a decision you make consciously or subconsciously. Deciding to participate of the YPG Connection is also a decision, and the decision to participate of the YPG Connection is one of the best decisions that can be made.
Having fun with YPG, our family!
Our YPG coordinator arrived but the youth were already very motivated. We made the first prayer and then it was then time to carry on to the first competition. The first competition was: the tribe that had the best choreographed steps to the song given. We had to think beyond the limits of our mind to come up with skillful steps. We put our best foot forward, literally, and did our best. Both tribes rose to the challenge but there could only be one winner. The tribe of Ephraim took the win. Next it was time for a different test, it would require memory skills, and speed. Bible questions was the next activity we did. Each tribe searched frantically for every question that was asked. Simeon took advantage of the opportunity and stacked up their points.
Devoting our best, every time!
Even though we were learning many things, we had to move on to our next activity. We then had the opportunity to be part of the “Life’s Worth Living” movement. We went out and spread awareness on self harm. It is a topic that is not understood quite well but our mission was to make known the reasons for this to anyone willing to listen. We distributed pamphlets with information on the YPG and its projects.
We love our sports! Join us!
We then had the opportunity to play a friendly game of volleyball and soccer with each other. The day was perfect. The sky was blue and clear. The sun was at its peak but the wind provided us refreshment. The moments we enjoyed with each other were exceptional.
The World or God?
Before the end of this weekends’ YPG Reflection, let’s indeed reflect, but on something different. The bible speaks regarding a person who is split among two decisions essentially. An example would be a person who is split between the world and God. However one can not and should not fool oneself. It is either the world one hundred percent or God one hundred percent. That is why the bible states “”No one can serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other, or he will be devoted to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and money. Matthew 6:24. So what decision will you make?
