Volunteering As An Awana Leader

I have discovered the joy of volunteering as an Awana leader. Awana is a club which trains children to memorize Scripture from the Bible. We sing songs, learn the truths from the Bible and play games. I love doing this. My reward is a smile and a wave from these children when I see them at church or school outside of club. That sparkle in their eye when they smile at me gives me such a joy in my heart.
Being a leader includes learning Scripture along with my kids. Right now I'm memorizing Psalm 1:1-6. Also, included is prayer for the kids in my group. I have five children in my Bible training group and I have eight in my game time group. I use the time on the treadmill for praying for them and for learning my Scripture. Because I tend to get lazy I have to make myself do this as an act of obedience to God and to discipline myself in good habits.  I feel wonderful when I do this.

Blessings, Kathi

1 Blessed is the one
who does not walk in step with the wicked
or stand in the way that sinners take
or sit in the company of mockers,
2 but whose delight is in the law of the LORD,
and who meditates on his law day and night.
3 That person is like a tree planted by streams of water,
which yields its fruit in season
and whose leaf does not wither—
whatever they do prospers.
4 Not so the wicked!
They are like chaff
that the wind blows away.
5 Therefore the wicked will not stand in the judgment,
nor sinners in the assembly of the righteous.

6 For the LORD watches over the way of the righteous,
but the way of the wicked leads to destruction." Psalm 1:1-6
