Courage is something we will all need to find our lives. You may need the courage to face an exam or test, or maybe you’ll need the courage to say sorry and seek forgiveness.

The Holy Spirit can give us courage when we need it the most, so think about the times and places where you need courage at the moment and ask God to help you find that courage and move forward.

We start our prayer with the sign of the cross…

As followers of Jesus there are many songs that inspire that same hope and courage in all of us.

Listen to this song by the worship band Rend Collective. As you listen pick out a lyric that stands out to you and makes you think about the courage that we have in the love and power of our God.

Share your chosen lyrics, and your thoughts on it, in the comments box below!

Psalm 104 begins

Praise the Lord, my soul!
    Lord, my God, how great you are!

It is a celebration of how great God is and of the wonderful things that He has made for us.

Throughout Psalm 104 lots of the things that God has made and that God has done are listed. These are just some of the 10,000 reasons mentioned in the song that we have to praise God for.

At the end of the Psalm it says

I will sing to the Lord all my life;
    as long as I live I will sing praises to my God.
May he be pleased with my song,
    for my gladness comes from him.
May sinners be destroyed from the earth;
    may the wicked be no more.

Praise the Lord, my soul!
Praise the Lord!

The Psalm talks about the importance of singing to praise God.

Will you have the courage to show your faith to others.  To not be afraid to say: ‘I believe in God and I love him’

Saint Augustine once said that someone who is singing is praying twice. Therefore it is important that whenever we get the opportunity to sing God’s praise we take it, and sing as beautifully as we can.

The song above has all the lyrics so play it again and this time join in and sing along!

Sing together to praise God for the amazing world that He has created for us.

Try to remember to praise and thank God for his creation whenever you can.

This week’s theme is courage.

Remembering the words of scripture below, chose a way to show courage this morning:

1. Close your eyes for a minute without peeking (it’s harder than you think!)

2. Stand up in front of a friend and tell them three facts about yourslef

3. Talk to someone you don’t usually talk to

4. Share something that you are worried about and take courage from the words of your friends

5. Share a time when your faith has given you the courage to do something.

I hereby command you: Be strong and courageous; do not be frightened or dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

Joshua 1:9

The world can keep going despite of it’s flaws, the world can keep going and you are the cause. Keep going, keep going, keep going!

It takes courage to keep going. Sometimes life seems hard, keep going, sometimes it feels like you can’t achieve what you want to, keep going. Who keeps you going? Write their names in the comments box below 🙂

Joshua 1:9

Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened, and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.”

 

The world can be better and you’ll be the cause

We have a responsibility to look after the world that we live in. We can do great things just by having courage and doing small things everyday. We are taking care of the world by putting our litter in the bin, recycling, riding a bike instead of going in a car. All these things make the world better and we can do all of them.

In the poem the Kid president also says:

The wind keeps us sailing, its love gives us hope

At Pentecost the Holy Spirit was experienced by the disciples as wind and fire. The Holy Spirit is always with us in our lives to keep us sailing. It helps us to keep trying to make the world a better place. It is the voice that whispers to us and inspires us to keep going.

We ask the Holy Spirit to help us to keep going as we try to make the world a better place.Help us to remember that although we are just one person we can be the cause of big and amazing things.

Amen

The picture this week gives you a challenge!

It is based on the scripture found in Luke’s Gospel:

Do not be afraid, little flock, for your Father is pleased to give you the Kingdom. Sell all your belongings and give the money to the poor. Provide for yourselves purses that don’t wear out, and save your riches in heaven, where they will never decrease, because no thief can get to them, and no moth can destroy them. For your heart will always be where your riches are.

(Luke 12: 32-34)

This scripture is teaching us that even if we make lots of money and save it all up for ourselves we can’t take it into heaven with us. This is the same with our time, our clothes, our food and many other things.

Do you have the courage to be an individual and step away from the crowd. To not want materialistic things but to have a better world

If we want to fill our purses in heaven with things that will not be stolen and will not rot away then we should do good deeds which will build up in heaven.

This means that in our daily lives it is not all about who has the most money, or the nicest clothes or the most expensive toys. It is about who has the richest heart and that is measured by the good that we do and the love that we show to others.

By taking care of the planet that God made for us to live on we are doing good. We do good by caring for others, just as it explains in Leviticus:

When you harvest your fields, do not cut the grain at the edges of the fields, and do not go back to cut the heads of grain that were left. Do not go back through your vineyard to gather the grapes that were missed or to pick up the grapes that have fallen; leave them for poor people and foreigners. I am the Lord your God.

(Leviticus 19:9-10)

This scripture is telling us that we should always be thinking of others instead of being greedy for ourselves. We should give some of what we have to others so that they can live better lives.
