Brain Freeze

Writing is what I have done since I was eight years old. However, for five days I barely wrote a thing.

I attended summer camp with our collective churches in southwest Ohio. Normally, each day I pen what happened in my day. Then I write what I learned and list what I am grateful for. During these five days at camp. None of that happened. Every night I was too beat to think, let alone pick up a pen.

The only time I used a pen was for lessons taught in the group setting and during the two hours before our charges woke up. During those morning two hours I had quiet time with God in His Word and wrote notes about what He told me. Then I went to the nurses offices to take my morning meds. This was followed by a walk around the entire camp. The end of the day journalizing didn’t happened. I tried to in those early two hours, but the Holy Spirit said “nope, not today you got stuff to do.”

I had a marvelous time being God’s servant for the seven preteens another counselor and I were responsible for. Over 15,000 steps were walked every day and I got to commune with God in His nature. When God will have me process what I did, learned, and was grateful for will be all for His glory, on His schedule as I pray Big. Because I know He never puts me through something without me sharing about it.

It is God's plan for me to encourage women to do all for God’s glory, live on His schedule, and pray Big.
