Camp Reminders of Who God Is!!

As I sit at camp in a small group with eleven 6th and 7th graders, I using my size to “scare” them into listening and not talking over others. The thought comes to me: Does God ever have to remind us of how to treat others by His size??

I had to use my deep, stern, loud voice; does God do that for us? I had to remind them that we have expectations of how we are to treat and act together. Not rules because we want to rule them and boss them around but expectations because we care for them, that we believe that they can do great things, that we want what is best for them. Because we love them!!

After we got down with the big “scary talk,” we were able to have a great talk with times of deep ideas and stories, with times of crying together, times of laughing together. As we left the table, we left as a closer group, we left as a family, we left as a family who loved each other. We had been on Holy ground with God and with each other.

As we left to the next thing no in a busy day at camp I just had to smile and remember that We as people of any age sometimes need God to remind us of His calling, expection of us. That He loves us so much that he holds us to a higher standard, that He sometimes needs to remind us that He is big, like super big and that He can handle all things we throw at Him.

I just want to remind you that God does LOVE YOU, all of you not just when you are doing good. That He is always there to help you when you need Him.
