Day Two halfway done

I have to say, I visited track time NAP today. I hadn't planned on attending it so early, but I had a night visit from one camper a little upset at 2:30 am. He's fine and called his mom this morning to tell her so. Not 5 minutes after he left, I attempted to sleep again when I felt the TAP of something falling on me. SPIDER. He met Jesus soon after. It was me or him and God's not done with me yet. Needless to say, my fine adult helpers afforded me NAP from 2 - 3:30.

The kids are doing great. Their challenge last night "allow God to make you a tad bit uncomfortable, allow yourself a little journey out of your comfy spot, and see God do amazing things." Jesus could do it. He stepped out of glory into diapers on a journey to a cross. We can follow his example. Step out, follow directions, see God do awesome stuff.

Mom and Dad, some of YOU are out of your comfort zone with kids at camp. Are you looking forward to God doing awesome stuff?

We're here. According to my history books, after he arrived at the New World, Cortez' the explorer burned his ships to motivate his men. There was no way home... While I don't feel like I need the motivation to stay, it's odd to have the bus drop us off... and leave.

We're here. According to my schedule, dinner will be at 5:20... after 10 minutes of power sweat walking. Hows THAT for motivation. But we're all here and safe. I had to end a snack selling ring in he hall... Slim Jims were pricing close to $0.50 and Little Debbies were beyond expensive. Motivation to share will be instilled.

Dunno what the girls are doing... probably something involving spritzing or poofing. Girls do that kinda stuff. Us guys are gonna set a goal to not STINK the rest of the day. The Bus was a different story.

Maybe it's good it left.

I laugh and laugh at this picture... Mainly because it's silly, funny, a little sarcastic, and it references something I loved as a kid. It also reminds me of a biblical truth.. as much as you try to fake it on the outside, it's the inside truth that matters.

There's no way any amount of paint, numbers or "dixie horns" you can put in that car... you'll always get caught by Roscoe. There's no way enough Christian t-shirts, Jesus fish, and Christian catch phrases we learn... it makes us no different.

Jesus went so far as to compare people looking for external righteousness to white washed tombs. (Mt. 23:27) You can paint up and look pretty in the sun, but inside there's rot. The cure? True transformation, inside. (Romans 12:2)

I'm not sure you can shoehorn a 440 V8 in a SmartCar like that., but nothing is impossible with God. Just think. He's put His Spirit in you if you're a believer, and with that power and the truth of the Word working... VROOM!
