CBM Intern – 3 Ways to Stay Focused on Christ

By CBM National intern,  Priscilla Depew - Hello everyone! My name is Priscilla Depew. I started the CBM National Internship back in September, and one of the things I've had to learn while being here has been focus. Normally, my focus jumps from object to object, never staying in one place. Before I started the internship, I would zone out during conversations, because I would get distracted. I still do sometimes, but it's gotten better. The reason it's gotten better is because I've prayed about it and figured out three ways to stay focused on Christ. 1. Prayer Pray all the time. Whenever your mind begins to think on whatever is ...

CBM Intern – Looking Back, Looking Forward

By CBM National intern,  Stephanie Schwan - Well, here we are. We made it, folks. The year is almost over and Christmas and the New Year is upon us! Where did the time go? For many of us, myself included, it flew by. 2016 has been a whirlwind of controversy, change, loss, and upheaval worldwide, but also of learning, growth, building, and hope.  We know who is in control of it all, whether it feels like a time of unprecedented hope with a bright future gleaming ahead, or the brink of certain disaster with doom and despair looming on every side. Whether things seem worse than ever or better than ever, we know the One who reigns forever. We ...

Teamwork -Two are Better than One, Three are even Better

By CBM National intern, -  Mark Martens John Donne states in one of his poems, “No man is an island, Entire of itself, Every man is a piece of the continent, A part of the main.”   If there is one thing this rotation has reminded me of, it’s the importance of teamwork. Now don’t get me wrong, I have known about teamwork for a while, but God has made its importance rather evident to me recently. In the past, there have been times I have tried to do things on my own, but every time I have done this, it usually has not ended well for me. While on my rotation at Camp Grace as a CBM National Intern, I was given the ...

Living Out Love

By CBM National intern, Mark Martens - Have you ever had a time when you were reading a passage of Scripture and part of a verse just gripped you for some reason? Well, this happened to me not too long ago while I was reading My Utmost for His Highest for my devotions. I came across the verse, 2 Corinthians 5:14, which says, “For the love of Christ controls us…” It was that part of the verse that gripped me. The reason this resounded with me is because more often than not, I like to try and take control of my life. It can be very easy for us to think we can do this.   As I kept pondering this verse, the question, “How often ...

Just Wait

By CBM National intern, Mark Martens- The term “wait,” as defined by Merriam-Webster, is “to stay in a place until an expected event happens, until someone arrives, until it is your turn to do something, etc.” I will be honest with you; sometimes I find it hard to wait. In fact, when I think about it, I have a really hard time waiting. From the first time that my alarm goes off, I am already off thinking about what the day has ahead of me. I then proceed to keep myself busy for the majority of the day. However, on days like these, I can find myself exhausted and that’s when I’m reminded of a certain truth.   In Isaiah ...
