Throwback and Farewell
Hey guys and welcome back to another Faith Filled Friends devotion. Today’s devotion will be special making it a bit different so please bare with us. This is important to us as friends in Christ and as a team. This is also important for all who are Faithful Followers. Let’s begin.
Thanks For The Beautiful Memories- Hawk Nelson
This song is from Hawk Nelson’s, “Crazy Love” album. This is still ‘Old Hawk Nelson’ so it is pretty loud but it is a beautiful song for this occasion.
Today’s devotion is a throwback to the start of The Faith Filled Friends as we start a new chapter.
On Good Friday, Jonolivs (Jono) posted a beautiful devotion and he said that it would be his last devotion, and it is. Jono and I had spoken weeks before and he let me know about his situation and he asked if he could leave the team. So, on Good Friday he posted his final devotion.
Jono has been a part of The Faith Filled Friends from the very beginning, that being September 10th 2016. He has been very influential to this team and to the website. He is our photographer and he has always been an encourager. His passion for Jesus is inspiring. He always has scripture on his tongue and his words are filled with the love and wisdom of Jesus.
Jonathan, you will be missed but we want to bless you in your next chapter. As Christians we understand how God opens and closes doors, he works in chapters and this is the end of one chapter for Jono. We will miss you but we know that God has some great plans for you.
We want to thank you for all the memories that we have made in the past 8 months. Thank you to everyone who has made this possible. The Faith Filled Friends is based on the love of Christ and we are so grateful for the support. Thank you for the beautiful memories everyone. Especially you Jono.
Jono, keep chasing your dreams and passions. Keep chasing God’s call, because He has great plans for you. We are all cheering you on. You will do great things in God’s kingdom. We know that this next stage in your life will be all for Jesus and we will always be here to support you.
God bless you in all you do. Jesus, pour out your favour upon Jonathan’s life. His life is in your hands and you have great plans for Him. Bless him Lord.
Jonathan, we wish you all the best. Go live a crazy life for Jesus!
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you a hope and a future.”
“…What he opens no one can shut, and what he shuts no one can open. I know your deeds. See, I have placed before you an open door that no one can shut. I know that you have little strength, yet you have kept my word and have not denied my name.”
God has plans for you Jono, but he has plans for each and everyone of us. We just need to trust Him. God opens doors and shuts doors, we need to follow the call of Christ.
We have one last song for you all. God and all His angel armies cheer you on. And we join them. Jonathan, we will cheer you on.
Cheer You On- Jordan Feliz
