Taking It All In

I've been gone from my blog for a while ... but with good reason.

I just finished another summer working at camp.

If you were to ask me how it went, I'd probably give you a big smile and tell you that it was incredible. That God changed me. That I saw Him work.

But really, that's only the tip of the iceberg.

How do you tell people that God helped you understand--at least a little--how prayer works? Or that He showed you answered prayers in a way you've rarely seen?

How do you tell of 101 more souls on their way to heaven now, and many, many Christians who made the choice to live more fully for Jesus?

And how do you explain how God took the one thing you thought you couldn't do--be a counselor--and blessed you so richly in it? How He gave you words when you had nothing to give?

That's what my summer was. And so much more! I don't think I'll ever be able to help anyone else fully understand what this summer was to me. But that won't stop me from telling you how good God is.

The best part? This isn't the end of an awesome experience with God!

It's another step on the journey closer.

Praise Him!
"Now unto him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us, Unto him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen."
(Eph. 3:20-21)
