Hello everyone my name is Zachary Leonard and I’m 14 and go to a school called New River. And today I wanted to share a message I shared with Heather…Okay I’m going to ask you something, have you ever thought about giving up? Hold that answer, I’m going to talk to you about how God can still use you! Well awhile back I went to the flea market with some family and we were walking around and I notice this homeless man walking up to people with some paper and a pencil. So me and my uncle wanted to pray with him and to make sure he knew Jesus, so we went out to find him but we couldn’t find him anywhere, it was like he disappeared. So we gave up, we thought maybe it wasn’t supposed to be. Well when you think that, you need to tell yourself No and pray about it for a minute, and do what God calls you to do. Whenever you doubt, tell yourself that God has something for me and I need to do it ASAP. I’m going to show you a verse alright? Matthew 5:11 says “Blessed are you when they insult you and persecute you and falsely say every kind of evil against you because of you.” Look at those keywords ”when they,” who is they? “They” is the enemy putting discouragement in your ear telling you what and what not to do! So me and my uncle Frankie prayed about finding this man, we didn’t give up cause we knew that it was not a mistake. God led us to this man! The man told us he was raising money for his son that has cancer. He’s going through chemo and couldn’t afford it, so we prayed for him and let him know who God was. It really opened my eyes to see who I want to become in life. You see maybe the thing your afraid of is the thing God wants you to do, like the experience I had. Look everyone, my great grandfather is turning 101 this year and God uses him everyday since 1916! He could do everything I could do, but more cause he drives! And prays everyday and worships. So whenever your thinking of doubting just remember this question: can you and will you not give up when God calls you?
