Summer Camp!

30 Aug

The reason I haven’t posted this last week is because i have been away for 5 days up in the beautiful mountains of Cyprus with my church youth group on our annual youth camp!

Playing messy games spraying ketchup at each other’s faces, going to ‘rocky point’ a high peak in the mountains where you can see a mind-blowing view of the stars and having your friend tell you each of their names (wow!), and even trying to keep up with your rugby-player youth leader as we jogged up a mountain (even got my exercise in there)

Being away from internet, keeping our phones hidden away at the bottom of our bags and forgetting about those t.v shows that i usually sit and watch day and night gave us so much free time to just think; worship; and just praise the lord!

Having this “week off everyday life” far away from my hometown really made me realize how much time i, and so many others, waste doing things that will really not help us accomplish anything!

 

2 corinthians 4:18  says:

So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.

 

Being far away from everything made me think it would be so easy to just get back home and change completely, start reading my bible everyday and have my devotions time just like we did up at camp.

But obviously, were human; and what we sometimes think sounds easy can be the hardest thing if put in action; and so just like i set myself goals in what i eat, just like i try to have self-control and discipline in my diet and exercise, being healthy in body is great but the most important thing is being healthy in spirit; this may be a surprise to some of my readers as i’v never posted any blogposts like this, but every once in a while i’m going to share with you what God has been teaching me.

This may not be what you usually read; you may not even believe in God, but i’d really appreciate some feedback, wether its a comment or a question or just something you’d like to share with me (annamartin-xD@hotmail.com)

Summer is finally coming to an end, and the word ‘school’ is being used more and more often each day; i really am looking forward for this new year to start as i have so many things waiting for me this year and i can’t wait to share them all; wether its recipes; diet plans; exercise and just life in general!
