This song is dedicated to my sister Courtney. When I first started out in youth ministry I was ministering to teenagers when my own teenage sister needed the most support. There are days when I wish I could have been there for her more. Even today, as she comes out of some really tough stuff I see how God has helped her, rescued her, and loved her by sending the right people at the right time into her life. I have a burden for all of our students but an even greater burden for my family–I pray that she knows that “it ain’t over”. I’m praying and interceding for you every day. I’m fasting for you. I am constantly lifting you up even though we are far a part.
You keep pressing. Keep progressing. Keep looking up. I know you’re moving in the way of miracles. Whatever it takes baby sis. I love you.
This is beautiful! My sister is 14, and I know it must be weird for her to have an older sister who is a youth minister, when she is a youth in another church (4 hours away at that). Do you have any advice for me? I am the only other member in our family who is a Christian, and it is hard for me to minister to her as well as it being hard for her to have a big sister who is obsessed with ministering to people her age.
Heather, I would love to chat with you about this sometime. Message me to set up a time. email@example.com
Praying for you!
