Summer 2016 Review: God is good. All the time!

“God is good. ALL THE TIME!” If you’ve ever been to Camp, you know this phrase. It is said in chapel, cheered at the end of counsellor morning devotions and staff meetings, and used as an encouragement or reminder in many conversations.

Looking back over the summer, I stand in awe of how our Lord’s goodness was evident every day. We were reminded of his goodness when we studied his Word in chapel. We could praise Him for who He is and for His mighty works of salvation. “There is no God like Jehovah!” The Lord also showed his goodness to us through the people that came. We had the privilege of meeting over 400 campers, many of them for the first time. We had many, many volunteers help out, each being there exactly as needed: when we had campers with exceptionalities, in that same week, the Lord would bring us volunteers who had experience or training in that area. How providential!

In addition to seeing God’s goodness in His Word and through people, we could also see it in how He gave us what we needed physically. He protected us from serious physical injury. We were blessed with warm days, in which we could enjoy the beautiful creation and the refreshing pool and splash pad. There are so many other ways in which we could see the Lord’s goodness this past summer. All of it cause us to exclaim, “Give thanks to the LORD, for He is good, for his steadfast love endures forever!” (Psalm 106:1)
