Praise the Lord!
Praise God in his sanctuary; praise him in his mighty heavens!
Praise him for his mighty deeds; praise him according to his excellent greatness!
Praise him with trumpet sound; praise him with lute and harp!
Praise him with tambourine and dance; praise him with strings and pipe!
Praise him with sounding cymbals; praise him with loud clashing cymbals!
Let everything that has breath praise the Lord!
Praise the Lord!
“We going crazy, we going crazy” fills the Corraboree here at Pine Cove Outback as campers are jumping and dancing in between worship songs, excited to praise the Lord more and more. While the music is beautiful and dancing is fun, we are not going crazy for anything other than the Lord and all He has given us this week. He has set our hearts on fire and instilled in us the pure joy that exists so abundantly here at Pine Cove. How are we so joyful? How is it possible to be THIS happy even when there may be suffering in our lives? Here is the answer: God steals our hearts from worldly things and fills it with His heavenly, eternal love. He alone gives us joy that can withstand anything. His infinite love outwardly shines in everything campers do whether it be morning flag, activity classes, conversations, or even epic theme nights.
Tonight, your campers will dance to their hearts content in the “Caution Watch Your Dubstep Dance”. For an entire hour they will be cranking out to the chain saw, winning dance battles, and going crazy as a whole camp! But, while your campers may be winning dance battles tonight, Someone much greater is winning as well. God is winning. He is winning over their hearts. In response, they are praising Him so loudly just like Psalm 150 demonstrates. While the world is full of music, dancing, and television that does not glorify Him, your campers will be using this time tonight to fellowship in pure fun with their cabins singing and dancing to music that does glorify Him.
Worship doesn’t stop at club talks or devotionals or bible studies. It permeates loudly and enthusiastically through all we do. It’s crazy to believe that we only have one more theme night together to go crazy for the Lord. His presence goes far beyond Pine Cove though. He is present everywhere if we allow Him to be the One our hearts adore. We can praise Him in numerous ways no matter what age, location, lifestyle, or time of day.
