Desire to Delight

Desire to Delight

At Streamside’s Winter Blast 2018, 113 campers and their adult chaperons traveled through time with speakers, Glodi Konga and Craig Vincent, as they recreated real life conversations around the biblical principle in Psalm 37:4, “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.”  As we acted out these conversations, we took an honest look at our desires,”what we want most,”, defined what it meant to be “in the Lord,” and then learned that if we delight first, God will either endorse those desires or replace them with His desires. This is not something to be afraid of, but a wonderful discovery of realizing God wants what is best for us and what will make us truly happy.  The weekend was full of fun indoor and outdoor activities that communicated value to each camper,  reinforced the lessons taught and gave opportunity for wholesome expressions of joy.  The 8 member worship band from NYC, Submerged Worship, consistently led us into the presence of the Lord while “Humble Tip” brought his stage concert to the Poconos.  19 volunteers joined our Streamside leadership team to make it a truly special weekend. We hope you can say along with us, “I want…what God wants…and I love it!”
