Dear X by Disciple, dear pain, anger, shame, emotions, guess what, you don't own me. Teenagers struggle with emotions but what we need to realize is that they don't own us. Guess who does? Jesus Christ! This is a huge deal, that's why people commit suicide. This high school student from calhan was going through emotions because a girl that he loved didn't love him an there was no one to comfort him, no one to tell him how much he was loved. He knew Jesus but he didn't live his life to the fullest. He died a senior when he had his life ahead of him, but a gun stood in between that. He had a lot of emotions going on because someone rejected him and hurt him really bad. He came home with a gun and shot himself in the head. He killed himself. It is so important that we encourage and show everyone the love that God gave us, and to make sure that we talk to EVERYONE and ask how they are doing. If someone who is lonely and has no friends suddenly skip school, or not come to church, or youth group will we miss him? Will we say where were you?? Here is another question. Do you notice the missing people, not just your friends but everyone in the group setting?

Challenge: meet someone new and hang out with them. If it's school talk to them at school and plan to meet somewhere like sonic or culvers. Whatever or wherever it is, try to be a friend to those who have none. Try to be the Jesus that they never had in their live. Thanks for reading. Please think about it. God bless you! And Jesus loves you. Don't get down by this. Let it encourage you. Step up.

Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.
