CBM Interns-Being the Captain
By CBM intern, Scott Carpenter –
Here at CBM’s New Life Camp in Raleigh NC, they have two different sports programs going on right now. One is their Storm Program, which is like high school sports for home-schooled kids. They run teams for both middle school and high school. The second program they are running at this time is their Next Level Basketball. This program is a league basketball for boys and girls, six to eighteen years old. Jerri and I have enjoyed watching the kids play basketball and soccer during our rotation this last month.
One of the many jobs we do during the games is being the field captains for the soccer games and gym captains for the basketball games. For the soccer games, being a field captain means we are in charge of setting up everything, to get the field ready for the games, and the concession stand ready for the fans. For the basketball games, being a gym captain means we are responsible for meeting with the coaches and referees before the game and leading them in prayer. Also, during the games, it’s our job to make sure all is going well around the gym.
Is there a captain or leader of your life? We all have things or people that direct our lives. We all look to things or people for direction, but there should be only One Captain of our lives, and that is Jesus Christ. Proverbs 16:9 says, “A man’s heart plans his way, but the Lord directs his path.” God will always lead you in the way He wants you to go. Let God be the Captain of your life.
