Lightseekers 2016 -Thursday Night

It was another wonderful day at Lightseekers; it was nice and hot which made the pool seem even better. Some campers and their leaders took a hike over to Jenks Lake, a few got lost but were found pretty quickly by some other Christians who showed them the way. This is so like our walk with Christ, sometimes we lose our way and God sends someone along to set us straight. More on this in a bit.

Karla continued her story about Jen Barrick. We found out that Jen recovered from her coma but had to learn to do everything all over again, like she was a little child. In time, she was able to do many of the things she used to do but she was still left with a lot of permanent damage to her brain and body. Still, God honored her desire to serve Him with all her being by allowing her and her family to found a ministry that partners with Joni Eareckson Tada's ministry to reach those who have suffered debilitating traumas.

Jim continued his message about trusting God using Proverbs 3. The key passage is found in verses 5 and 6 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart;  do not depend on your own understanding.
Seek his will in all you do, and he will show you which path to take."  Our own thinking (like the hikers who were lost in the woods) can be confused or even downright wrong and disobedient. But when we trust God after seeking His way, He provides the direction we need in our lives.

This is why we have Lightseekers Camp: to help campers discover who God is, who we are and then help campers learn to trust Him. It's not the end yet, we have one chapel to go. Continue to pray that God will touch hearts.
