I finally mailed in my application for Camp Geneva. I’m still not sure if I want to be away from home all summer long without anything but some weekends free. Perhaps I won’t even be offered the job. But if I am, should I take it? Should I try to find a job back home? Maybe having weekends available if I need them is good enough. I’m taking a May Term this year which will secure my place in Holland up until the day I move into Geneva. I guess I’m just nervous because living at a camp is certainly not the same as living at school.
But I need the money… And I need the experience… And I just feel like I could do a good job and have fun.
Hmm. Maybe next week I’ll be getting an interview.
OK so the one opportunity I can’t get out of my head is Hillsong. Tray pointed it out to me and I just can’t forget it. I want to contact them and ask some questions. It’s so cheap to go there compared to Hope (not counting travel costs) and it’s what I want to do… work in the ministry. I am just too excited about it to let it go. Maybe soon I can talk to my parents about it to see what they think I should look into.
I don’t want to leave Hope, but I might want to not go home after I graduate. We’ll see… I’m such a dreamer.
Matthew 6:25-34 From the New Living Translation
“So I tell you, don’t worry about everyday life–whether you have enough food, drink, and clothes. Doesn’t life consist of more than food and clothing? Look at the birds. They don’t need to plant or harvest or put food in barns because your heavenly Father feeds them. And you are far more valuable to him than they are. Can all your worries add a single moment to your life? Of course not.
“And why worry about your clothes? Look at the lilies and how they grow. They don’t work or make their clothing, yet Solomon in all his glory was not dressed as beautifully as they are. And if God cares so wonderfully for flowers that are here today and gone tomorrow, won’t he more surely care for you? You have so little faith!
“So don’t worry about having enough food or drink or clothing. Why be like the pagans who are so deeply concerned about these things? Your heavenly Father already knows all your needs, and he will give you all you need from day to day if you live for him and make the Kingdom of God your primary concern.
“So don’t worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will bring its own worries. Today’s trouble is enough for today.”
