Tonight I write to you guys with a heavy heart. Tonight our youth pastor resigned from his position. As he told us, there was a collective gasp in our section. No one was prepared for that.
Some nights are heavy. Tonight is one of those nights.
I am excited for Murr. I know that he will continue to do great things and impact people on such a great level. He will still be at church. But it will be different.
Heavy nights come and go. The heaviness of tonight will subside. And slowly but surely, things will return to normal.
Tonight I also got to watch my incredible youth worship team lead our congregation in worship and they were incredible. I got to listen as one of my students played the song she wrote.
Heavy moments are almost always balanced with light moments.
I'm thankful for that balance.
Own these heavy moments. Go through them, not around them. You were made for this.
I hope you are encouraged tonight to try and find the light in the midst of the heaviness. It's there. You will make it through this.
As always you can keep up with me over at ohhaiiitsbrandii.wordpress.com
Until next time,
