1-18 I attended a Prayer and Worship service for James last night at CrossPointe Church. There were hundreds of kids, teachers, and parents that came together to sing and cry out to God on James' behalf. It was unlike anything I've ever seen! Lindsey, his sister was there and I got a chance to love on her too! The format of the service was pretty great. They had a guy and a girl lead in a couple of worship songs and then someone came out, read a verse, and then called everyone to pray for something specifically. The first thing we prayed for was for the Holy Spirit to comfort the family and friends of James. Then we prayed for all the members of the search and rescue teams. Lastly we prayed for God to bring James home. One of the worship leaders said that James may be missing, but he is not lost and will never be lost because he is a child of God! He talked about James' close walk with Christ and how he desired others to know Christ and have a personal relationship with Him. It's pretty evident from all the comments on facebook that are being posted that James was a sweet, sweet Christian boy. I urge you if you are reading this post and don't know Jesus as your Lord, stop and seek Him. John 3:16 says "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish but have everlasting life." We are not promised another day! The only comfort in all of this is knowing that if he has passed away, that he is "safe" in the arms of our Lord! Safe by Phil Whickham was one of the songs we sang last night and it's what I want to end this post with. There are services at CrossPointe Church in Valdosta tonight and Wednesday night at 6:30.

God renewed my spirit just by being there.
