Picture it, Delanco Camp tabernacle, third row eighth row back, Mike Bill up front, volleyball in one hand and a cassette tape in the other. Mike was talking about the setting of our lives, where we’ve been, where we are, and where we’re going. With his volleyball and cassette tape he described different settings of his life that have helped him get where he is right now. It’s really cool to think about because I was wondering what settings I could use to describe my own testimony.
During morning chapel Mike said a few things that might really help a kid along and really encourage them in the neat future. He told us that “My setting is the basis of who I am now but my setting does not have to define who I am going to be.” At my point in my life journey it’s awesome to be able to look back at events and think about how he’s totally right and maybe if I’d known this then it would’ve been easier to get out of thy setting. But it’s also neat to think of how my settings can change in the future and I have no idea where it’s going to go.
I know he was talking to jr high kids this morning but I hope all the staff gave it as much thought as I did. I really had never thought about it that way and I’m going to look at my life setting in a different light now. At the end of service Mike left us with two questions, the same two I’m going to leave you with, “What is the setting of your life? What is the future that God has for you tomorrow?”
