Cole Marshall, Black Diamond Intern

I love being an intern at Black Diamond Camp for many reasons! I love the community I get to work in and be surrounded by. I love getting to serve others every day and know that my actions are making an impact on the lives of the people who come to camp. I also love working with others while running different activities, it’s great to see people come out of their comfort zones to try things that might be daunting to them and see them overcome what they thought their limits were, discovering they are more capable than they thought!”

One thing God has been teaching me throughout the internship, is how to be diligent and put my best effort forward. In life I’ve always wanted to try to do my best in everything I do, but sometimes when you’re having to do a big job, or multiple jobs, it’s easy to let small and what might seemingly be unimportant things slip through the cracks. For example, when you see some trash lying on the ground you might not think to pick it up, or you might not think to put back cleaning supplies or other equipment that you know doesn’t belong where it’s sitting. I’ve been really challenged lately and asking God and myself, “Am I really putting my best effort forward, or am I doing the bare minimum?” While I’m out and about in my day I want to bless the people who come through camp, as well as the people I work with. I don’t want to leave a job half finished, waiting for someone to come finish it for me. The difference is so apparent in and around our lives when we take that extra step to put others before ourselves and give our best effort to bless them. It doesn’t go unnoticed even in how camp looks, the little things make a big difference on the grounds, and in the heart of whoever comes through.

The Delight of God

"No, the Lord’s delight is in those who fear him, those who put their hope in his unfailing love." -Psalms 147:11 NLT The Delight of God (spoiler alert: it’s you!) The writer of Psalms 147 makes three things clear: God provides for His created world. God responds to the needs of His children. He is not impressed by our own means of strength and power. There is one more thing God wants us to experience and know:  …the Lord’s delight ...
