Making A Decision!
Hi friends. The past couple of weeks have been rather difficult in trying to make a decision. See, each year in the month of July my church youth group heads to camp for a week ( Sun- Fri.), and each year I make the choice not to go. The year before last, I sent in my registration slip, I was packed and ready to go, my parents drove up to the camp with us, and well when it came time to un-pack and get settled in for the week, I chickened out and wanted to go home with my parents! At that point, I didn't care what my friends thought about me; I just wanted to get out of there! As I say sometimes, it was out of my " creature comforts"! Each year, my friends, youth pastor & parents encourage me to go and have a good time, but each time I say NO!! The past couple of months I have felt the burden to go thinking that this would be a "BIG" step in my life! So, this year on Sunday, July 5th, I will be going to camp for the first time in my life! Philippians 4:13 which says, "I can do all things through Christ which strengthens me," has been a HUGE inspiration to me in the past couple of months in making my decision!
