So those of you who know me personally realize that I am not much of a camper. Jenny and I both do not really care to jump in an RV and travel to the Grand Canyon like the Grizwalds. We are just not about the camping thing, so when I signed on to become the intern at MovementSM I found out that we would be going to camp.
Okay, before you think we are a country church that goes camping for a church retreat we went to camp at Woodlands Camp and Retreat center in Cleveland, GA. From what I heard before I got on the wonderful charter buses (with DVDs & WiFi\) was that Woodlands was a plush camp that truly takes care of their campers. So I was excited when we pulled up to the camp and saw the amazing cabins, the beautiful lake, the amazing trails, and the beautiful forest background. Needless to say this would be a comfortable camp for myself to be at home for a week. But what i did not realize going in was that God had a few lessons not only to teach our student ministry, but also us as a staff.
God gave me the opportunity to truly listen to his leadership in my life including trusting him with my career choices coming up (which seem to be a recurring theme in my blogs this summer). God also gave me the opportunity to spend some time with Shane Combs, who is truly a blessing to my life. Even looking back at the decision I had to come to Emmanuel, I began to realize that it was truly God who gave me this opportunity.
The final day of camp I was given the opportunity to worship God, but worship God in a way I had not worshipped in forever.
This summer God has truly become the center of my life, in my future marriage, my decisions, and my personal life. God is everything that I am and everything that I seem to be. God is my life and I look to serve him through everything I do in the future.
Until another Day,
