Back right before Easter, Priscilla and I went for a road trip. We went on a college tour to be precise. We travelled from Illinios, to Indiana, to Pennslyvania, to New York, through Canada (bypassing the Nigra Falls), to Michigan and home again. Throughout this trip both of us were searching for what God might have in store for us next. We both had big decisions to make when we got home. So while on the road my mind traveled in every which way as well. For those that know me, they know that once my mind starts spinning it is hard to stop...the whole "what's put in motion, stays in motion..." kinda thing. So I was searching and praying and questioning, "Lord, where do you want me to go?"
Though I still don't have a complete answer, I have decided to pursue school full time...Where you might ask??? Well, I haven't quite decided on that one yet. I am torn between two...Geneva College in PA and Trinity International University in Deerfield, IL. I know that in a lot of ways that it doesn't really matter where I go...God can and will use whatever I decide. But I have to make a decision by next week...Please pray with me on this...Pray that I will have wisdom and unselfish motives in this choosing.
So with that on the back burner...let's talk about camp for a minute :) Camp is going great! We are gearing up for summer...Along with that there are a couple of projects that I am working on for this summer. One of them being a Jr. High Adventure camp. I am trying to plan and prepare for this weekend in July. This will be my first endeavor in planning and leading a short camp like this. I am excited and praying that God will bless this weekend with campers. God will work according to His will and it will be GREAT!! On top of that we have a couple of new activities being introduced this summer...and it is my job to make sure that these programs get up and running for summer. Needless to say that I am happily kept busy and working :) I am just soo excited to see what God has in store for the next week, month, etc.
Thought for the day: "Out of the most severe trial, their overflowing joy and extreme poverty welled up in rich generosity. For I testify that they gave as much as they were able, and even beyond their ability. Entirely on their own, they urgently pleaded with us for the privilege of sharing in this service to the saints. And they did not do as we expected, but gave of themselves first to the Lord and then to us in keeping God's will." (2 Corinthians 8:2-5) Do we give ourselves FIRST to the Lord? Not just our actions...but our entire being...first and foremost to the Lord??? Then do we carry on and give to those around us. How aften do I think of myself above others...above God???
