How do you feel about being young? Are you ‘loving it’? can’t wait till you’re a bit older? desperate not to get older? Confused, happy, frustrated, content? Feeling powerless or loving being free of responsibility? All of the above?

King Solomon has some wise words for us in Ecclesiastes 12v1: ‘remember your Creator in the days you are young’ A young David said: ‘I have set the Lord always before me’ (Psalm 16v8 http://bit.ly/1aOBSIg)

The way to celebrating and fully enjoying the gift of your youth is keep sight of your Heavenly Father who knows your circumstances intimately, whose will for you is good and perfect, and who works all things for the good of those who love him.

Happy youth day!
