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.
