In my little town of Kountze, Texas, God is moving big time!! I cannot tell you how excited we are! If you haven’t already heard about it, our local high school cheerleaders chose to create the signs that the football team runs through with Scriptures on them.
Please note that they did not do this under a teacher’s supervision, it was the students choice. They did not do this with school supplies or on school time. This was done at one of their houses and was done with their own supplies.
After the third football game in a row, an anonymous complaint was made to the school board about the signs. As a result the school board told the students they could no longer have Scripture or religious references on their signs. And just to get the rest of the facts out of the way, some of the students have hired a lawyer to protect their free speech and religious freedom.
Several papers and news stations have picked up the story…

But what I really want you to see is how God is moving! In a town that has had the focus of a major church split, a fire that is still being investigated by ATF, mixed feelings among the community about different churches and beliefs, and so and so forth, God has brought them all together over this situation. The football team, who hasn’t been a great team in years, is now winning their games…you can’t tell me they weren’t encouraged by this and God didn’t move because I can see God in even that. Other communities are now showing their support and the list goes on. When God chooses to move in the hearts of our young people in this nation, He sometimes moves BIG! And this was no exception! One of our girls posted today in the Facebook Group, “I am a cheerleader at Kountze High School and I want to thank everyone for the support! It means a lot and I want everyone to know that God has already gone before us on this. This means that we have nothing to worry about because even if we lose, we win. All we have to do is remember what we are for and Who we represent. God is for us. Above all, honor Him in all things. Thank you again for the support.”
God is moving folks! Can you see it? Can you feel it? I am so proud of these girls and the community for standing behind them! Check out the pictures below. I couldn’t even download and post all the pictures of support and God moving because there are just so many and God is just moving so fast! Isn’t it awesome?
