Worship the Lord with gladness;
Come before him with joyful songs.” Psalm 100:2 (New International Version).
Recently, I went to a Young Life summer camp called Capernaum. Young Life is a ministry for teens and young adults. Capernaum is the camp designed for people with disabilities. It seems no matter how hard I try to be ready, the week never goes exactly as planned.
Everyone was getting ready for Capernaum Idol. I got to the clubhouse, and my leader took the CD out of my backpack. “What number Rachael?” He asked as he handed it to the DJ.
“Number seven.” I replied.
He opened the case. “Rachael?” “There’s no CD in there.”
“What?” I replied.
He came down and showed me. The case was empty. The CD— got left at home! “That’s it. I thought. It’s over.” Suddenly, another leader said,“Rach, this is Hollywood we make it work.” I sang the song acapella.
“I can do all things through Christ who strengths me.
Oh I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me
In anything and everything I’ve learned to be content
Oh I can do all things through Christ who strengthens you and me.”
At the end, the audience gave a standing ovation. I realized that while I have one plan, God has another. Whose show is it anyway?
Please help me to have a heart of worship for you in everything I do.
