I'm heading to the middle of nowhere. (Estacada)... which is where my bro Kenny Hangartner lives. haha. :)
When I'm outside of the normalities of life, it gives me opportunities and choices and chances to take. It's always a mystery to me of how I will approach these if I have not my Savior at my side. I can grow so much in the Lord when I'm away from home... with or without friends... However, if I don't go with that focus, I lose sight of the goal. I don't pursue the relationship with my Lord.
This vacation weekend I will spend time with friends and family at our church camp-out; it will offer me those opportunities to grow.. choices between pursuing God or focusing on self.. and the chances to make much of God or to make much of me.
When I step out of my normal lifestyle at home I want my all to still be about Jesus. When you leave home, do you take advantage of all that God gives you?
