This summer, the theme here at camp is "Go!" based on Matthew 28:18-19: "Then Jesus came to them and said, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me, therefore go..."" We've been looking, both with the kids and with staff in small groups and worship time, at different Bible characters who were given a call from God and the way that they responded to those calls. We've looked at Elijah, Elisha, Jonah, Jeremiah, Jesus, and tonight John the Baptist.
For me, this has been kind of difficult to look at and try to apply to my own life because I have no idea what God's calling is for my life. No clue. I keep praying that God will show me what I'm supposed to do, but he just isn't. So every week, at worship, I say "Okay, God, show me what you want me to do and I will do it, whatever it might be" but really, since I don't know what he wants me to do, it's easy to say I will do it. I'm afraid that when he finally reveals this calling to me, it'll be too hard and I won't want to do it.
Or maybe I will live my entire life without knowing what it is. I suppose that's possible...
But for now, I guess I can't do anything except live each day at a time, asking God to show me his plan and continuing to promise to do whatever it is he wants me to, right?
Well, week 7 is here. WooHoo!! I'm really excited about this week for some reason. I think it's going to be a good one. I think I'm finally over that mid-way hump that was the beginning of last week and it's gonna be a good one. I hope.
Only two more weeks of Rez - this one is 3rd-5th grade and the next is another week of Jr High. Then two more weeks of day camp and the summer is over. It's going to fly, and next thing you know I'm going to be back at school... Oh well, I'm really excited to go back to school!
This weekend was good. Really relaxing and refreshing, but also fun and not boring! Friday night, a group of us went to see Harry Potter, and it was good. Sure, it might not have been just like the book, but it was still good. It was funny too, which I really appreciated! Then on Saturday some of us took the train downtown Chicago and hit up the Art Institute and then Millennium Park. Good stuff. We had a lot of fun and I got to know these three other girls a bit better. :)
