Back Again this year!
Ignite All-Day Summer
Camp returns to Faithbridge Church this July 20-24, 2020. Sign up your campers
All-Day Summer Camp and get ready for five full days of exciting
activities, adventures and learning about God at Faithbridge United Methodist
Campers have the option to choose from one of three incredible activity options: technology, athletics, and creativity. With the opportunity to either develop an area in which they are already gifted or stretch themselves to learn new things, campers can continue to grow into who God envisioned them to be!
“Seek the Lord while he my be found; call on him while he is near.”
– Isaiah 55:6
I’ll be the first to admit I did not take my hand washing as seriously as I should. Yes, I washed my hands and yes I did so several times throughout the day, but as I’m learning now, my washing was not as effective as it should be. Was I just going through the motions? Probably. I saw recently something that said you should wash your hands for 20 seconds. Since I started counting it out, I now know my hands have been lacking in true cleanliness. I wasn’t washing effectively. I just scored 1 for me because of the Coronavirus.
I also have found myself talking more to God all throughout the day; not just in my morning devotions and prayer lists or prior to meals or at bedtime. Now I’m talking to Him whenever I hear news about what is happening in our world, and when I hear about another case of Covid-19 reported, or when I read about businesses closing and workers out of work and schools closing and yes TP shortages. With this crisis situation, I am talking to Him all day. God is there – this I know and He is listening to the prayers on our hearts. This makes me calm.
Was I praying as effectively as I should have been or just going through the motions? Probably. And, if this is what building a stronger relationship with God looks like – I just scored another 1 because of the Coronavirus.
Yesterday I ran across the picture below on FB. It’s perfect for me right now!
