I am incredibly grateful that Jesus loves me, not inspite of, but smack dab in the midst of my life.
I stand on holy ground at this moment. I am at Camp Keystone, the camp I grew up at – as staff kid, camper, counselor, staff member, and now I come as event manager.
I could write for years about the impact of this place, the stories it tells, and all the love and Spirit that envelopes me the moment I drive in the gate.
But for now… His love.
I found it here. I have wrestled with it here. I have been renewed and inspired by it here.
I now see the many facets and depth of it here.
We are gifted glimpses of His infinite love everywhere and in everything. I am often overwhelmed by His pursuit to reveal the eternal value and depth of a life truly lived with and for Him. The good and hard life here on earth is redeemed by His faithful, fervent love for His children… for me.
So, as I walk this ground, remembering all He has done for me, I confidently promise my pursuit to live with and for Him.
If creation still obeys You, so will I.
“God of Your promise
You don’t speak in vain
No syllable empty or void
For once You have spoken
All nature and science
Follow the sound of Your voice
And as You speak
A hundred billion creatures catch Your breath
Evolving in pursuit of what You said
If it all reveals Your nature so will I
I can see Your heart in everything You say
Every painted sky
A canvas of Your grace
If creation still obeys You, so will I”
