This is my 14forty (Read by Keely Sturm on December 31, 2014)
There are fourteen hundred and forty minutes in each day. Each one is significant, because you can’t get it back. In 14forty, we pursue an uncommon faith. Worldly logic says “you only live once”. I don’t know about you, but to me, that is shallow. Every minute of every day of our life has the potential to impact eternity. While there are those waisting their time… “only living once”… There are those of us who are willing and equipped to put the full force of our faith into every minute of every day. We have answered the higher calling, not to live for ourselves, but to live for the glory… The glory of God. Our time is NOW, and you have a decision to make! The Word of God gives us a choice: life… or death… you choose! I choose life, and that requires my faith. What choice will you make? I am done standing idly by while my generation is being deceived by darkness; is being fed a false identity; is being ravaged by suicide and self-harm; is being silenced by depression and self-doubt. That is not who we are, and it certainly is not who I am.
I am the righteousness of God
I am part of a chosen generation
I am an overcomer.
I know the truth and I am free! The earth has been waiting for me! This is my time! I am going to rise up, take my place and step into my destiny; and so is my youth group.
This is my Generation
This is my responsibility
