Guess What! Only 141 days until the first day of Session 1! Preparation has already begun to make Summer ‘17 the best yet! As you can probably tell, I can not wait until Camp starts and my jorts can make a comeback! But, in the meantime I have been tasked with this edition of the CBC Counsellor Blog.
To keep with last summer's theme, my “Truth of the Day” is, Jesus is always there.
Deuteronomy 31:8 says,
“It is the Lord who goes before you. He will be
with you; he will not leave you or forsake you.
Do not fear or be dismayed.”
A few weeks ago, Midgel talked about Jesus seeking us, using the Sheep and Shepherd parable that we learned as one of our Truth’s of the Day during camp as proof that Jesus wants us to have a relationship with him. In addition to that, just like any other relationship with our friends, our relationship with Jesus has to go both ways, equally. How real is a friendship if you only talk when you need something from the other? In the same way, how genuine is our relationship with God if we only seek him when we need something? I was a constant ‘necessity prayer’ when things weren't going my way. That's when I would bow my head and send a small prayer his way but, when things were good, God was the furthest from my brain and I certainly was not praying.
Just like any other relationship with our friends, our relationship with Jesus has to go both ways.
Thanks for reading! I hope this will help anyone who struggles with this in their Christian life. Can’t wait to see you all at camp again this summer!
