Over Winter Break, I attended my church's Winter Youth Retreat. It was a blast seeing all these guys get pumped up and really learn about who God is and what He is about. I was asked to serve in the roles of worship and video. Every year, there is a mistake that I make and something that I learn. I'm always humbled in some sort of way and this year was no different. There were times that I stepped in when I shouldn't have, there were times where I should have trusted where I didn't; there were times that I spoke when I should have just stayed quiet. It just really shows my weaknesses and what areas I severely lack in. Although the retreat theme was Passion, I felt God speaking to me in a different way. I felt God was speaking to me about a time of quiet and of stillness, to really be still and quiet and listen.
Being a photographer, student, worship leader, and a small group leader, doesn't really give me much time. So my time with God easily gets pushed off to the side. Which is awful =/ I feel very convicted and sad that I have neglected the one thing that should be first and foremost. I have been so focused on taking care of everyone else that I have forgotten to take care of myself. So this is where I am. I know what I need to do.
Whoo, that was a loaded little post. Sorry about that ><
Alright! In addition to doing some worship while I was at retreat. I was in charge of doing all the video there (by myself). The night before the end of the retreat, I stayed up in the cafeteria until 5:30am editing the video so that it would be able to be shown at the Praising into the New Year. So here it is! Instead of calling it a SDE (same day edit), you could call it a SRE (same retreat edit), get it?! hahaha...
