This past week I had the great privilege of leading worship at Camp Focus in Panama City, FL. It was a great time of rejuvenation for me, Andra, Jessica and Seth as we experienced God in a very refreshing way. The speaker was Dean Folks from Columbus, OH and he nailed down the need to put on the armor of God. His preaching was very relevant and his heart for God was evident to all. He explained God’s Word in a very clear and concise manner and challenged us all to live a real life of true commitment to the Lord. Our times of worship got better as the week continued and by Thursday we were worshipping as friends, and brothers and sisters in Christ.
Camp Focus was also fun for me as I got to use my keyboard and guitar to lead worship. I started out a little rusty, but felt better as the week went on. There is nothing like leading people to worship God in Spirit and Truth and see lives changed for eternity. I appreciate Tommy and Allison filling the gap here on Wednesday and Sunday, and it was good to be back at Scotts Hill this past Sunday.
The words Camp Focus say a lot. We need to stay focused on God this summer and keep our eyes looking to Him for power and direction. I’m thankful God never takes a summer vacation, even though He rested on the seventh day. Of course, it was after creating the heavens and the earth! May our times of rest be offensive as we refresh to serve even more effectively in the days ahead. Until He comes, lets find ourselves focused on serving the Lord.
So let’s keep focused on that goal, those of us who want everything God has for us. If any of you have something else in mind, something less than total commitment, God will clear your blurred vision—you’ll see it yet! Now that we’re on the right track, let’s stay on it. Philippians 3:15-16
