GIVE HIM PRAISE
by abby klass, ghevont panosian and daniel quigley
“This year I struggled quite a bit with contentment. I frequently compared myself with others and in turn affected my relationship with them. I’m still growing, but in all this God has reminded me that the only place I
can find self-confidence and satisfaction is in Him.”
“I got saved Tuesday, April 14.”
“One big thing was that my brother, Karl, was saved in January.”
“I went through something really hard first semester, but I came out knowing God loved me, which I had been
doubting. Also at the beginning of April I had the opportunity to go on a mission trip and share the Gospel.”
“My grandmother was sick at the beginning of the year, but she is doing better now.”
“I’m still passing school!”
“My mom is successfully making it through cancer treatments.”
“Over the course of this year, I have noticed some changes in my life. The most dramatic change I have seen
in my life is where I place my focus. At the beginning of the year, if you asked me what I was worried about I
would have probably said that I didn’t get enough “likes” on my Instagram picture. I was so concerned with
how the world saw me that I lost sight of what truly matters. I now have realized that my eyes should be fixed
on Jesus and the Word of God.”
