Inspiration Overload

It’s the beginning of May and my first year of being a freshman in college comes to a close. I turned in all my papers, finished up all my exams and waved goodbye to my professors. Pack away the textbooks, push the notebooks under the bed, and relax to think about the next couple of months….summer.

You know, sometimes I feel like I have no idea what I am doing, and I guess…I usually don’t. (That includes right now.)

When you spend months talking with your friends, family and to God about this dream that you have, this vision of what you hope to be doing, where you could go, and how your near future will end up, and then when God says “okay here is your opportunity” – it usually isn’t really what you pictured. It sure wasn’t for me when it came to my dream for this summer.

For months Connor and I envisioned this summer a little differently. Imagined going to some place, some city far away from Abingdon, and living as “missionaries” (I hesitate to use that term). Just Christians, reaching out to a community and trying to live each day with a focus to spread the gospel. Yeah, definitely not there yet. Probably never will be. That’s beside the point.

Bring Love.

12 Days Left!

The Love Mission is the idea behind GO! Camp this year, and they’re trying to raise $30,000 dollars (that’s insane!) all before May 15th!  I loved the idea, I loved the desire to shoot for ridiculously high goals, but I will admit – I was unsure of how far they would get. Nevertheless, Christians all over responded to the call to help feed 100,000 people and they have raised OVER 20,000 DOLLARS so far! Yet now time is running out and there are only 12 days left before this fundraiser ends…

What can we do about? I set a goal to try and raise only $500 dollars to help the cause – and I’m getting there! However, I need help from my friends and family! So go donate to either Revive’s fundraiser or others – it doesn’t matter to me, just donate!
