Enduring the Storm
By David Brown
As we end this year we are highlighting some disciplemaking stories and testimonies from the D-Team, Servant Team, and Adult Leadership Team. This post is the second of eight in this year's Fall Partner Development Drive. If you would like to partner with us you will find the information below. Enjoy this story about enduring the storm by one of our D-Team apprentices, David Brown: - Shawn Storms at EKC are rough. With only a pole shed with no walls, a small staff shed, and tents for shelter, enduring the camp storms are no easy task. As the D-Team, we are responsible for not just our own safety and comfort, but the safety and comfort of the rest of the staff and campers. This means we must be ready to respond, no matter the time of night or the intensity of the storm.
In Matthew 4, Jesus is our example for how we are to respond to the storm. The Spirit led Jesus into to wilderness, but He did not abandon Him there. The Holy Spirit supported Jesus and helped Him when no other relief could be found from the storm He was enduring.
It is tough to endure a bad camp storm, but it is even tougher to do so serving others with a good attitude. Some storms of life go and leave quickly, but others stick around all night. Who are you leaning on in your storm? I must rely on Jesus and remain in His word. He is my hope, my rescue, and my sustenance to wether the storm.
