  • Junior High Camp 2015: Those moments when God becomes a Reality

    For all Christians on their faith walk with God, there’s a moment.
    This moment is indescribable and unlike anything else. This moment is when
    everything changes. This moment is when everything clicks. This is when the
    reality of who Our Father in Heaven truly becomes known. At that moment, one
    feels invincible because of the power and love of Christ running through every
    fiber of our bodies. At that moment, one just wants to shout to the world of
    how amazing our God is. At that moment,
    every story and truth that has been said to you by preachers and youth
    leaders becomes a reality and a Truth that has meaning in your life. It becomes
    a Truth that no longer is stored away but a way of life. It is when everything
    you thought you wanted in life changes, and one realizes that God can give you
    everything you will ever need.

    This past week I had
    the privilege of helping counsel at a Church camp I grew up at myself. The
    theme for the week was “Life lessons from the Sandlot”, and we
    focused on fear, courage, strength, and joy. The overall concept was that with God on our side, fears can be
    conquered, courage is inevitable, strength is unlimited, and the joy is
    unchanging and unconditional.
    These are some of the most important lessons
    we can instill in children at this age. There are so many obstacles and storms
    that are apart of life, but GOD is the one that equips us to make it through
    these storms.

    Throughout the week,
    this special place forever reminded me of my moment on my faith walk. It’s the
    most magical rush of emotions and a
    gust of empowerment that’s unlike anything you’ve felt before. I remember
    walking out around the camp feeling so invincible and so ready to take on the
    storms approaching in my life. I realized how real God’s unconditional vast
    love for us is. It is just one of the best feelings; however, the only better feeling I have had was this
    week watching these campers having their moments.
    After a week of being
    inspired and impressed with the young people at the camp, their faith walks
    will finally take off and begin after the Holy Spirit revealed itself. All the
    heart to hearts and goofing off with the campers became worthwhile. As I was
    reflecting upon the week, I was reminded of the verse 1 Timothy 4:12 that says,
    Don’t let anyone look down on
    you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in
    conduct, in love, in faith and in purity”
    (NIV). This is a message to a younger
    follower of Jesus, Timothy, explaining that one is never too young to have a
    influence of the world by the empowerment of God. These campers were my
    Timothy’s. These younger followers re-enforced why our God will continuously be
    the ONLY ONE that can fully satisfy.
    God’s unveiling during these moments caused endless tears of joy and
    happiness that empowered these younger ones.

    Because of these moments where God revealed Himself, we are closer and closer to generations that will bring Heaven to
    Earth, that will change the world, and that will fulfill their purpose for the
    Kingdom of God.


    To all these campers, I
    hope that your days become brighter and your life has more meaning because of
    this week. Each one of you has a beautiful soul that was made perfectly by God
    to carry out a purpose for the Kingdom of God. These purposes are unique and
    something only YOU can fulfill for God. I love each and every one of you more
    than I can express, and because of each of you, I have been changed for the
    better. I hope for unconditional joy, fearless adventures, endless courage, and
    unlimited strength with the God you felt on our final night of worship.
