After all these years (since 1978) I’m still amazed I get to speak to teens around the country. As I type I’m in Rhinelander, Wi at Crescent Lake Bible Camp speaking for a junior high camp. Then I’ll stay here and speak for two weeks of family camp.
I’ve reached the point that it is mathematically possible that I could have a camper who is the grandchild of a former camper! Yikes.
Like you, the “current events” are not encouraging. Concentrating on the “news” can be deadly. We need to be aware of our day, but not overly focused on it…
Instead, at least for me and mine, we should “fix our eyes on Jesus.”
Some would say that’s too simplistic.
Color me simple.
He is the only stability in my life. He is the only rock. He has blessed me with life, a wonderful wife and family, precious friends, and allows me to serve Him as a home missionary.
He is good, all the time; and all the time, He is good.
And He sings to me a song by the Beatles…because, amazingly, He wants to hold my hand!
