I tried a new trick at Highland Lakes Camp near Austin, TX this week. I did an illustration where I tried to explain how we are weak by ourselves but when Christ is in us, we are strong (because it is no longer us, but Christ who lives in us – Galatians 2:20). I finished out the teaching by nailing a cross together and then balancing it on my face – for a very long time. It was a moving moment for me as I stared at the cross for so long. But I found the unexpected when I took the cross down: over eight hundred preteens on their feet praising God. I have come to expect the unexpected. God always has gone before us in life and my prayer is that I will follow Him down that path. He does amazing unexpected things along the way!
