Dallas Youth Camp

Last week (June 16, 2008) I was blessed with the opportunity to serve as a counselor at my church’s youth camp.  This was my eleventh year to serve as a camp counselor, and every year is always such an amazing experience. 

I love getting to see all that God does in the teenagers’ lives during the week.  It never ceases to amaze me how much God desires to do in people’s lives if they will just let Him.  At camp students are not allowed to have ipods in their ears or cell phones in their hands. 

In a society where multi-tasking is encouraged and busyness is the norm, people are not forced to deal with what is going on in their lives.  All of the noise serves as an escape and disguises the true freedom that God offers daily.  At camp students are emptied of distractions and given many opportunities to read and hear God’s Word.  This enables them to truly reflect on all God is doing in their lives and all that He has in store for them. 

Many of them come face to face with Jesus, let go of all that they have been holding onto, and give Him full access to their lives.  It was the most beautiful thing to see!  I know God truly desires for all of us, regardless of our age, to experience His abundant freedom and true healing. 

Watching how these teenagers seek God and want to glorify Him makes it so clear to me why God desires for all of us to have child-like faith.
