Every summer each of our Summer Leadership Team members write a devotion for campers to read after their week at camp. Our hope is that these devotions help campers remember their time at camp, and keep connected to Christ throughout the year. Here is a devotion written by Erica Mick, our Adult Volunteer Coordinator:
Devotional Word Scramble
Grab a piece of paper and unscramble the words below!
Sometimes in all the chaos of life, it can be difficult to hear God’s voice. We may get things scrambled and misunderstand God’s calling if we aren’t focused on His will and the grace He has given us. For me, this happens when I start to believe that I know better. When I try to take control of my life instead of giving it to God, I end up feeling disconnected from my purpose.
“You have searched me, LORD, and you know me. You know when I sit and when rise; you perceive my thoughts from afar. You discern my going out and my lying down; you are familiar with all my ways”
You have searched me, Lord,
and you know me.
You know when I sit and when I rise;
you perceive my thoughts from afar.
You discern my going out and my lying down;
you are familiar with all my ways.
If the directions in the word scramble above had just said “read the words below” then you would have wondered what “morisep” had to do with a devotion. But because you knew it was a word scramble, you were ready to unscramble the message.
The same is true in our faith. If we aren’t constantly seeking God’s purpose for our lives, we won’t be ready to receive the message.
I hope you had a wonderful week at camp. Have a great year!
