Good morning ! Today is the very last day of 2011 ! Has it been an amazing year for you? Looking back on this year, I had so many crazy experiences: I ran so far from God, only to turn around & see him right behind me with arms wide open, calling me home. So I ran back to him. I think the biggest highlight of my year was spending two days with 7 camp directors from Australia and New Zealand. We went on an overnight canoe trip, which I begged my camp director to take me because I was the boating director. This canoe trip still impacts me today, it was that powerful ! God is so good ! Always :)
Today, being my last day in this year, & your’s too, I think we should focus on fellowship today. What better way to reign in the new year than to be surrounded by some close friends? Fellowship as a Christian is so very important, the Bible stresses it in many different books (three chords are stronger than one !). This new year, I want to work on my friendships with the amazing Christians God has placed in my life. I am a very social person, but that side of me has been hiding because I scared to lose close friendships again. I need to trust God that the people he’s putting in my life are there to stay.
Open yourself up ! Spend your day with friends- I’m making food for some old friends who are visiting (it’s a brunch because lets face it, university students don’t wake up early for food on holidays). Pull out some board games ! Invite someone on a walk, do whatever you love doing, just invite a friend along, Close your laptop, shut down your computer, get off your phone, tablet, whatever ! Go BE with someone. I know that the internet is a huge blessing, don’t let Satan turn it into a bad thing. Focus on your fellowship today
