At camp, the paid summer staff and a few others give short testimonies on the things God has recently been teaching us. This was mine for past week.

So, lately I've been getting distracted. It's become a problem because it's taking away from from my job as a counselor-in-training. A few new things have entered my life in the past few months, and my mind keeps wandering to them. But they don't apply to my work here. I need to focus on helping the campers and encouraging the staff—not letting my mind wander.

There's a verse in Colossians 3 that says, "Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things." Right now, God has placed me at camp, so I need to be at camp. This is where I'm supposed to be. God wants me here, so I need to serve Him and focus on the goals He has given me: loving the campers and the staff. The distractions can be addressed outside of camp. But right now, I am going to focus on God and my campers and my fellow staff members.
