Camp Swamp

Hi! My name is Katie, I am 15 years old and I am from Jacksonville, Fl !! I'm sad to say it's the last blog of the last week of the last day of camp :( This is my third week out here at camp this summer ( I worked 2 and camped 4) and I wasn't sure if I would be able to take something new from the bible lessons and devotionals that I had already heard before. The theme all summer has been about the "Race" God has marked out for us. Today in our bible class Sade asked us what we thought the prize was at the end of our race. Somebody told me that christianity is less of a religion and more of a relationship. I knew what my prize was and I immediately thought what I had thought all summer. I want a relationship with God and I want to know his love for me. Sade also asked us where we thought we were in our race. All summer I have been waiting for God to show me where I am in my race. I have been praying to him and asking him to show me where the starting line is for me. I thought that if I prayed hard enough and waited patiently enough he would show me. Coming into this week I was frustrated. I felt that my prayers hadn't been answered and that God wasn't listening to me. I soon realized that if I wanted a relationship with God and if I wanted to start running my race I had to seek him out. Proverbs 8:17 says "I love those who love me; And those who diligently seek me will find me." After reading this verse I knew that if I wanted to feel God's love and if I wanted a relationship I couldn't wait around. I would have to search for him and pursue him with all of my heart. Growing up as a kingdom kid, it is easy for something so amazing like God's love to lose its value. This week I truly was touched by the amount of love God has for me and I am so excited build a relationship with God. I can't wait to see the race God has marked out for me and where it takes me!
