Most of us know the amazing story of Peter walking on the water. While we don’t require it for lifeguarding, it’s kinda what we are looking for this summer. If you are reading this and the thought of working this summer at Camp Gifford has crossed your mind, two things to consider:
Walking on water starts with a laser focus on Jesus Christ. It was only when Peter took his eyes off Christ and on all the other issues in the moment did he start to sink. If you have that sinking feeling, reestablish your focus on Christ.
Walking on water seems a little over the top. God doesn’t deal in the practical, but in the supernatural. Practically speaking it makes total sense to focus on the wind and the waves. Peter did. The practical reasons to work at camp are weak in comparison to the supernatural possibilities when you step off the boat.
