Last week I served as a counselor to developmentally disabled adults at White Memorial Camp in Council Grove, Kansas. The theme for the week was, "On the Way." Pictures of this special camp are available here.
In Genesis 12, God chose Abram and gave him a wonderful promise: "I will make you into a great nation and bless you." But to receive the blessing, Abram was told to leave the comfortable surroundings of his homeland and go the land where God would direct him.
Sometimes, in order to experience God's blessings, you have to leave and go.
Leave behind your comfortable bed at home. Go sleep on a 6" plastic camp mattress for the week.
Leave behind your comfort zone. Go out on that limb and put yourself in a place where you have to trust God.
Leave behind the excuses. Go attempt something great in the Savior's name.
The Lord is calling. The blessings await.
But to start on the way, you have to take that first step--and go.
