10 This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins. 11 Dear friends, since God so loved us, we also ought to love one another.” 1 John 4:10-11


I am going to show God love even more in my school and to others in the world. This is how I want to show love and help others find him through me. We can show our theme, Lost in Love, to others in our school and to people in the world.

I want to show people I care and love them this year. During this school year, I want to show love by as simply as saying hey to someone new people in the halls. I know I might have my group and people I hang out with but maybe if I change it up and invite new people in they will feel more included and loved. The last part of the theme says “Since God loved us,  We also ought to love one another.” A way to show this is by,  treating others the way we want to be treated. I can do this by thinking if I were them would I like this? I also want to show God’s love by being nice to some of the “difficult” 7th graders even when it’s hard to. I can show this theme many ways at school.

God has blessed me with many ways to show love to people in the word. This is how I want to glorify. As Christians, we can also show this theme to the world. Remembering that it was just 9/11 and thinking about the hate that we all carry because of It, I was thinking. Doesn’t the bible say forgive you, enemies? If we do this don’t you think our world will be filled with more love? Showing love can be as easy as saying nice job after a play. During my football season, I want to say “good job” more and more as the season goes on. I need to work on keeping my eyes open to ways I need to serve. I think one of the ways God has called me served is blessing me with the opportunity by going to the Philippines. When I am there I want to be ready to serve at all times and to be a light that shines God the each and every one the children.

We can show our theme, Lost in Love, to others in our school and to people in the world. Our grade has picked this theme for a reason and I want God to help me and tell me why I need “love” in my life and how can I show others it also.
