Tomorrow is the day! North Myrtle Beach here I come!!
….well, after 2 days of driving. But one way or another, come Wednesday I will be there. Everyone asks “Wow are you excited?!?!” And I always want to jump into their lap and say “YESSSSSS!!!!” But, that never happens. I always do the wavering, “uhh…yeah?” hahah how lame. Thinking about it now, each and every person should have seen me jump up and down with overwhelming excitement. I am going to be living in South Carolina for the summer, getting a full-time job, living with a huge group of Christian girls, having the opportunity to hang out on the beach fairly often, and learning to evangelize way more than I know now. Woah – now that’s awesome.
Isaiah 50:7 – “Because the Sovereign LORD helps me, I will not be disgraced. Therefore, I have set my face like a stone, determined to do his will. And I know that I will not be put to shame.”
2 Timothy 2:15 – “Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of.”
Clearly, somewhere along the way, shame was an issue. This summer I pray that without shame, I will be determined, focused, and unwavering in my desire to do the will of God. I pray that I will present myself and the Lord in a manner worthy of the calling I have received and handle (and spread) the Good News with fervency.
