Last month, I was asked to lead our school’s See You at the Pole morning of prayer.
My immediate response was gratitude for being asked. Then it turned to, “What does this entail? Do I have time for this?”
And I thought back to conversations I had been engaging with over the past six months, and the answer was easy: yes.
You see, my family, our ministry, our church has decided to be
For our Neighbors
At times, that comes with a “duh, of course you should be for other people.” But it has come with the weight of intentionality.
So when approached from a school parent leader to ask if I could lead this charge, my mind went to absolutely! Let me say, “yes!” to every opportunity that allows me access to the school — and in the name of Jesus, even better!
Today, schools across the nation gathered by their flagpole to cry out to Jesus, for Him to fill our schools and the hearts of students. And today, I was parent and not a student participating. And I was filled with hope for what could be.
Early this morning, as we stood at our Elementary school’s flagpole with 30+ parents and kids and school leadership, we invited God to be in this place through us. We invited students to love one another in the name of Jesus. We thanked God for teachers who love and care and listen and teach.
And the best part of the morning for me was the Principal who joined us. I am a first time parent at this school and that speaks volumes.
It is a privilege to go to school.
It is a privilege to stand in a country in front of school and pray openly.
It is a privilege to serve those around me.
And today it was a honor to stand side by side and claim the name of Jesus with kids and families and school personnel.
I fully believe kids are world changers in their everyday lives. And I love when God allows me glimpses into the moments where kids are changing the world in the name of Jesus. Media doesn’t show this part.
But thank you Jesus, I got to be a witness today.
