All Powerful

Posted on Jun 2, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

“Just because you’re reduced, it doesn’t mean His (God’s) power is.” I heard this over the weekend and it got me thinking about how many times I limit God to my situation. I put God in a box and say you can’t help me out in this situation, because it is physically impossible. Well good thing that God is not limited on what my perception of reality is. He is all powerful! God is not limited by money, people, resources, and time to complete His plan. Look at the story of Gideon (Judges 6-7). We first see the hero of the story hiding in a basement threshing (separating the grain from...

Forgiveness

Posted on May 28, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

Being around those we live with for so long is hard. There will always be fun enjoyable times and then the difficult ones. The key is how we handle those difficult times, everyone knows how to have fun but can you still find joy and peace when you are angry? We can see two different ways to deal with “annoying” family members in the story of Joseph. The story starts off with Joseph receiving (what I like to call) a Gucci coat from his father. On top of that, he has dreams where he thinks his parents and brothers will all bow down to him. Now that’s probably something you don’t want to...

Refuge

Posted on May 18, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

I was on the beach at the sound the other day and came across what I assume was a fortress (first picture).  I’m sure whoever created it had an exciting story how the fortress was keeping the people safe from an invading army.  It got me thinking about how God is our fortress, our refuge.  He keeps us safe from that oncoming army trying to invade. I checked the trusty internet and refuge is used over 40 times in the Psalms (depending on the translation).  I am not surprised seeing that David spent much of his time fighting battles or running from different people in his...

Waiting

Posted on May 15, 2020 in Camp Blog, Searchable

During this time in quarantine, I do a lot of waiting.  Most of the waiting involving hoping the quarantine is over, so that way I can go back to my “normal” life.  Most of us have been stuck inside with the social distancing rules for two months now and are going stir crazy!  What if instead of focusing on the “what if” or “I can’t wait to…”, we use this as an opportunity to grow our relationship with God? We are not the first person to ever be stuck in a place, with their family (or by themselves), waiting for something to end.   Moses after fleeing from...
