2010 Evangelism Class

To answer a few questions, yes, Boot Camp is hot, mess and slightly buggy.  Yes, during this time I can see us pull together as a team as well as our relationship to God.  The lessons God reminds me are simple and easy to apply to my life.  Well, so far at least.  throughout the day I am reminded about how awesome God is, and his many attributes.

At 5:30 in the morning, in my struggle to pull meself together in my dark tent, He is my light.  When my legs are just about to give up and walk on the OC, He is my strength.  When I get an SB, He reminds me to take responsibility for my actions.  When I take a look over my dirt covered sweaty arms, I (thankfully) am reminded He looks only at my heart.

From classes, when I am limping from blisters, He is my healer.  “Official” Boot Camp has only been going for a few days, but I am constantly reminded of His direction, strength, healing and his awesomeness.  Sometimes we get caught in the “Boot Camp Rush” and we forget that he is carrying us through it all.  We need to focus on the direction for our life.

In Carpentry, Mr. Deegan reminded us that when we saw, in order to keep a straight line we need to focus.  We need to keep the distractions away so our eyes and body are completely focused on that straight line. Just like our walk with God, stay focused and press on!  Even when we feel like limping.   2 Cor. 3:8-9

God will keep us strong in the way He knows best.
