Happy Thursday Friends and Happy Birthday America!

Our nation has certainly had a tough year this year dealing with the virus and an election that has brought even further division. In spite of this, we are still blessed and privileged to live in the greatest nation in the world! The freedoms that we have in America should not be taken for granted though as I often do. As we enjoy celebrating America this weekend with family and friends, let’s take time to thank Jesus for the true and ultimate freedom that we have through Him. Here is a link to a video that might help to remind us!

Another bonus video: “God Bless the USA”

Psalm 145:3-4

"Great is the Lord and most worthy of praise;
his greatness no one can fathom.
One generation commends your works to another;
they tell of your mighty acts."

I grew up in the middle of Michael Jordan's peak in the NBA. On the playgrounds, I can remember everyone wanting to "be like Mike." It is amazing how our actions can influence generations. You do not have to be the greatest basketball player. The manner in which we praise will impact the next generation of church leaders. I encourage you this week to take ownership of your praise. Ask yourself the question, "does the way I praise and worship, how I live influence people to want to follow Christ, or does it express something other than what's in my heart. Worship is an expression of our love for God. This week during our time of praise and worship, we will be singing these songs to help us express His praise. One is new, and I pray it impacts you this week.

King of Kings
You Deserve It All

Great Are You Lord

—Pastor Justin

In a recent GraceMail we shared the article What Teens Need From Parents, pointing out several things we can focus on with our kids, written from a counselor’s perspective. This new article from Rooted Ministry explores one point from that article and shows us how to care for our children in a way that makes them feel valuable without setting them up with unnecessary pressure. Check out these two articles and talk with your spouse and other families about how you’re putting this into practice with your kids! Have a great week and let me know how I can be praying for you and your family!! — Pastor Jonathan
