Beware of outstripping God by your very longing to do His will. We run ahead of Him in a thousand and one activities, consequently we get so burdened with persons and with difficulties that we do not worship God, we do not intercede. If once the burden and the pressure come upon us and we are not in the worshipping attitude, it will produce not only hardness toward God but despair in our own souls. God continually introduces us to people for whom we have no affinity, and unless we are worshipping God, the most natural thing to do is to treat them heartlessly, to give them a text like the jab of a spear, or leave them with a rapped-out counsel of God and go. A heartless Christian must be a terrible grief to Our Lord.
Are we in the direct line of the intercession of our Lord and of the Holy Spirit?

Although Sunbeams learn a ton of character building lessons through troops, let us take it a step further and encourage them to begin a regular devotional life with this new resource! With this, we can bridge the gap between outreach & discipleship!
Updated Emblem Compatibility Chart
The attached document helps you map out troop programs that have multiple troops in one class. Here you will find the emblems grouped up by content.
Girl Guards High Award Chart
The attached charts serve as a journey for Sunbeams & Girl Guards to work on completing emblems to achieve High Awards. As the they complete the emblem, they can add the date and be enthusiastic to complete and achieve more!
Due to the new resources, you will start to notice that the emblems are not in sync with the season, but more leaning towards the goal in completing the emblems necessary to obtain that specific award. Keep in mind that this is only a resource– you can always change the badge you’d like to do at your discretion.
