Facing down fatigue
I knew it was going to be challenging. But I didn’t know it was going to be this challenging.
The camping trip I was on is a big tradition at my summer camp, and I knew it would mean being pushed in ways I hadn’t been pushed before. I was expecting intense physical labor, coupled with only two to three hours of sleep per night, as we raced to build a series of structures in the woods. But I wasn’t expecting the lack of sleep to bother me so much, and I quickly began feeling extremely tired.
At first I was worried because it seemed like there was nothing I could do to improve the situation. Lack of sleep is simply a part of the trip, and everyone else was dealing with it as well. But even though I had teammates working all around me, I felt alone … until I realized that I could turn to God.
