I just got back from one of the best weeks of my life.
I got there expecting the same ol', same ol' as every year, but when camp actually started and we had our first worship service...I was amazed at how much God wants us to praise Him and how jealous He is for our attention and love, and that if we seek Him, we'll find Him when we truly look for Him and for His heart.
I learned that last week, and when I let everything go and gave it all to Him, I felt this overwhelming love I haven't felt for a long time, and this peace that had been a void in my life for longer than I can remember, before I had it, I would ask people what it felt like to have peace, and if it made them feel free, and I'd be envious because they would have it and I didn't, and after last week, I can say that I truly know what it's like and how great it feels.
To know that He loves us, and how much He does love us, that His grace is abounding, no matter the stupid things we've done, He's forgiving and kind. He is jealous for me....He is jealous for you...
We are His portion and He is our prize,
Drawn to redemption by the grace in His eyes,
If grace is an ocean, we’re all sinking...
