This time last year I was preparing for my first summer as a Christian camp counselor at Camp Burton. I was nervous. I had been a camp counselor before for the Lake Metro Parks, but I had never been a Christian camp counselor before.
Flash forward to today; I am 2 weeks away from my second year as a camp counselor. I’m still nervous, but for a different reason. Last year before camp, I was struggling with stagnant faith. God was a part of my life, but he wasn’t front and center. I went to him when I had to, like when I was angry or sad, but that was about it. A lot has happened this past year and now I am nervous because I can feel God pushing me towards ministry. I don’t just mean for the summer, I mean for my whole life. I really feel like God wants me to minister as my career, my life purpose, my calling.
