I'm packing for Pine Cove!!! I'm super excited!

One problem: I have a cold again this year. :(

I have:
my clothes
my theme night stuff.
my nice clothes for Friday
my bible
stuff to write with/on
makeup and straightener for friday.
bandanas.
stuff to take showers with
stuff to put my hair up with
bath towel
swimming towel
swimming suit and trunks.
flip flops
pajamas
face wash
a washcloth
toothbrush and toothpaste.
trash bags (for wet and dirty things)
body spray (mmm!)
febreeze
camera
bedding
other items for cleanliness
some just in case stuff
my toms!
a big water bottle

does it sound good to you?
I hope I didn't forget anything!

I can't wait for this week! It's the highlight of my summer every year!
This year I'm especially longing for it, because I need encouragement. This week will give me encouragement!

God has a plan! know how I know? this has been the course of 2009 for me:
depression
hopelessness
found a mentor
encouraged
went to SLU
encouraged
challenged
worked at Mission Kids' camp
action
Pine Cove
more encouragement!
and after Pine Cove, more action.

I can do anything with God's help! I'm finally starting to get out of this rut!

"Everything is Meaningless"

>> July 10, 2009

Lately, I've been having a difficult time with life. It's all because my youth group is dying. I feel worthless. I feel like no one cares about me. I feel alone. So alone. I'm making this into a big deal that's all about me. It shouldn't be that way.

I know God is working. I see it. I know He is going to do something great. I just wish it would happen already! This world is too messed up. I can't take it anymore.

I read Ecclesiastes tonight. I'm glad I did. I saw that Solomon felt the same way I do. There really is "nothing new under the sun." I take some comfort in knowing that I'm not the only one to ever feel this way. The world was just as messed up in Solomon's day as it is now.

The problem is that people generally (and I'm definitely including myself here) try so hard to be happy, without help from anything except themselves and the world. Like Solomon said in Ecclesiastes, living that way, depending on the things of this world to make me happy, is meaningless. Life is meaningless without God. Without Him, all my efforts to be happy are meaningless. I will never be happy if I don't look to Him. God created people to enjoy the world and be happy, but we will never enjoy it to the fullest if we don't have Him in our lives.

I'm convinced this is true.
Now how do I get out of the rut of my human nature and live like this!?
