"My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever."
We just returned from an amazing few days with our youth group. We were able to attend summer camp at Orange Beach with about 50 of our youth. We had such a challenging speaker and a wonderful worship band. As we are all immersed in God's Word for five straight days, it was hard to imagine not living for Christ every moment of every day. Nothing else competed with my time and attention. It seemed like we all left there feeling empowered and motivated to live every moment for Christ.
Now, less than 48 hours later, I can feel the inner struggle going on inside of my heart. I want to follow Christ with all of my heart more than anything else, but I can feel the world and sin trying to choke out that desire. I can feel my sinful attitudes trying to take over and squelch the joy that lies within my heart.
