“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest.”
Anyone else feel pressured by the new year? Pressured to make big changes, pressured to keep up with so-and-so on their diets? Maybe pressured to be the best version of yourself? There is nothing wrong with wanting big change, there is nothing wrong with needing big life changes. But there is nothing magical to that New Year’s date; like all others days, they are new every morning. At Sacramento the changing of the year isn’t a huge occurrence. Camp’s years can be measured by board meetings, fiscal years, summers, and semesters. It makes less of a difference here than in most places.
We travel once more around the sun, and the God in charge of it all, timeless as always, is no different than he was. He is always glad to have children come back to him, always glad to have his people strive to be better, healthier, to honor him in their hearts, minds and bodies. Which is why it is important to remember that in the burden of making changes or facing new difficulties, God is always there to give us rest. He is the best at handling new challenges, new obstacles, and giving new mercies.
Camp is looking at some big challenges, new changes, and growth. We once again are excited to be part of what God is doing here at Sacramento, just to be invited to be where he is working. For 88 years now, our faithful God has been inviting his servants to be part of what he is doing on this beautiful mountain. In the midst of change, newness, new year, new building, the challenge of raising money once more, we are met with his faithfulness. It’s a new year, but the same incredible God.
