What a privilege to be with you this past summer!  I’m sure your greatest memories come from my very impressive body building display.  Yes, how could you ever forget my mountainous biceps? Or maybe you consider my muscles to be more like tiny hills.

Speaking of hills, this past summer I traveled through an area of stunning rolling hills in South Dakota.  As I looked in awe at what God created, our theme verse came to mind. Do you remember the words of Psalm 19?

“I lift up my eyes to the hills.  Where does my help come from.  My help comes from the Lord the maker of heaven and earth.  He will not let your foot slip.  He who watches over you will not slumber.  Indeed he who watches over Israel will neither slumber nor sleep.  The Lord is your shade at your right hand.  The sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon at night.  The Lord will watch over your life.”

Life can bring all sorts of challenges—both good and bad. Through it all never forget: the God who created those hills in South Dakota is your helper.  He will keep you from harm and he is watching over your life.  It’s my prayer that throughout this school year, you’ll continue to think and talk about truths we shared with you this past summer.

God is sure. He is not a shifting shadow. If you seek to hear God’s word and put it into practice, you won’t be blown away by the storms of life.  So invest your energy in what’s important: memorizing scripture, having devotions, praying about everything, and engaging in meaningful conversations with others. You can do this anytime—in the car, while having breakfast, during a break between classes, before bed, or at any other time that works for you and your family.  Do these things and watch God work in your life.

Oh yes, and don’t forget to flex your muscles.  See if you, like me, can hold a pencil between your pectorals. It might even trigger some great memories of events of our week at Cherith—the times with your cabin, the skills you learned, the friendships you made, the counselor you admire, the whacky all-camp activity. Remember . . . and give God thanks!  He gave us a great week and He has great plans for your life! Follow Him!
