Four Sentences About Tonight (And A One-Sentence Prayer)

Tonight youth group was tiring and discouraging. It's weird how you can love people so much that you physically ache for them to make wise decisions, to be safe and to grow into the sorts of persons who make a difference in the world. I'm learning (again, or is it still?) that I can do nothing to change people's hearts and lives. And I guess it's good that that is God's responsibility and not mine, or else I would be an utter failure.

Lord, please protect these kids bodies, hearts and souls and draw them near to yourself.
