Sudbury Youth Conference

Hey guys, Kevin here, just thought I would make my first post.

So as you can guess the Sudbury Youth Conference is coming up very quickly, the dates are November 8, 9 and 10th. The speaker this year is Steve Price, if you haven't heard this guy before I welcome and encourage you to come just for the ministry. Now as for activities and what not those are currently up in the air and in the planning process, if you have an idea or something you would like to see happen feel free to suggest it in the comments.

Let me leave you off with a encouragement.

Many Christians go through hardships, trials, and temptation and sometimes we might not see why God has allowed it, or even brought them on (in regards to trials, God does not tempt us to sin). But we need to realize God's plan is for us to be "conformed (made) into the image of His Son (Romans 8:29)." We know God will never leave us nor forsake us (Deut 31:6), and because of these two facts we can take heart in knowing God is building us up, what a joy to be able to be more like Christ! 

Knowing these things, great as they are, sometimes we can still feel helpless and powerless, but let us take a look at 1 Cor 10:13 "No temptation has overtaken you except what is common to mankind. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can endure it." Take heart! you are not the first to go through this, God has brought somebody through it before! You have the strength to endure it, and there is always a way out. So if you are stuck in a certain sin that you cannot break, or are suffering through a loss of a loved one, or whatever the circumstances may be, look to God, he has the way out, and will give your strength to finish to the end. "Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest." Matthew 11:28
