A quick healing at camp

Our teen camp group was hosting the little kids’ cabins for breakfast one morning at the beginning of the summer. I was sitting with my campers and their little buddies eating breakfast outside and enjoying the gorgeous day until a wasp stung me on my hand.

The moment I was stung, it hurt, but I also knew that I didn’t want to scare the kids by making a scene. It wasn’t until I thought about why I wasn’t reacting that I realized that the suggestion of being hurt wasn’t one I had to accept. God is good and didn’t create anything that can harm us. So just as I could choose to make a scene or not, I could also choose whether to believe that there was something that could harm me or not. I chose to trust 100 percent in God’s goodness.
