A Tiny But Glorious Whisper

A Tiny But Glorious Whisper

Today, one day after camp, I began to realise that a lot of things are different. Now, when I step outside, things are different… I no longer see “Revival”-themed banners and all the other decorations around me at home or school. My personal worship at home does not have the huge, full band sound/ “kick” that camp has. AND what I felt at home and during camp was different too…

During camp, I felt dry. Throughout the camp, it felt like I was just going for another camp. I was, honestly, disappointed at God. As I looked around during camp, I saw that most of the people in the unit teared, knelt, and even cried when God spoke to them. But as for me, I didn’t feel any difference within me, I just felt normal… I questioned God, I asked “Why do you not come and speak to me like how you did for the others?

But today, after camp, I still chose to press on, I decided to worship God at home.

Even though at the start, for awhile, I didn’t feel God, I still decided to press on to seek Him. Then all of a sudden, God spoke. Something in me was different. And I broke down and cried. God did not come to me in a loud, fierce, huge way. BUT He came in a tiny whisper, a tiny whisper that assured me that He was with me. A tiny whisper from God changed me completely.

When I was feeling insecure, feeling lost, when I was struggling in my faith, when I was far from God for a long time, God still came to comfort me. It was truly at that moment that I can say that He is Lord. I knew, at that day, that it’s not the loud music, not the hype, not the activities in camp that makes God real, but it’s when we know God’s truth for each and everyone of us and when we desire to love Him with all of our hearts.
Indeed, it’s not really camp that changes you, but what you do after camp that changes you. God reminded me of this during my worship:

Psalm 23:4
“Even though I walk through the darkest valley, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.”

Gabriel, West A


A New Passion

A New Passion

Ever since Nicole has been Holy Spirit Baptised months ago, her life took a drastic change, she was growing in character and also faithfully serving in whatever areas she can. .
.

Going into revival camp, she was excited to see how God is going to move and touch her, she was simply expectant. At every single revival night, she can’t help but to be in awe of God’s love for her, how she longs to be used by God for His kingdom. After the first night, while in the room, she actually genuinely and humbly confessed that there was a period of time before camp she felt as though she was “slacking off” (she was not faithfully doing QT, praying, etc) and she felt so discontented about it and wanted camp to reignite her passion for God. Every single night, she would tear up talking about God, sharing about how she wants Zhenghua to grow. About how, the world really needs God. Her faith spoke as though it is literally Heaven as it is on Earth. .
.
As she share about the burden God has for Zhenghua, she too had her fair share of worries, such as, “what if I have to do this on my own?” And then she would end off by saying something along the lines, “Even if it is just myself and even though I always complain about my fears and uncertainties, at the end of the day I would still do it” .
.
She dreams about how Zhenghua community would come together in school to pray, be a family and reach out to the lost. To be the light that shines amidst the seemingly mundane routine of school. In this camp, God revealed his power and love for herself and the people. Not only does she has a burden for the lost, she has burden for even those who are already in church but have not yet recognized the love of Christ. She also encourages follow uppers to give their best to serve. She feels inadequate but would choose to still go ahead in confidence. And this is God’s revival for her. .
.
(Some friends she invited for Christmas service this Saturday will be joining us too!) .

Revival Can Happen Before Camp

Revival Can Happen Before Camp

A few days prior to camp, I had a hide fight with my mum after she found out some things and was super mad at me. She wanted to back out on allowing me to go for camp.

I was so discouraged. However, on the same day, I shared with her vulnerably my feelings and our relationship improved. I was really desperate because revival camp was so important to me! I am sharing this to encourage those that is worried to ask your parents for their permission to go for camp, go ahead in faith! The worst that could happen is a scolding I hope, but do pray!

ok a few days before camp my mum and I had a huge fight and she found out some things and was super mad and wanted to back out on allowing me to go for camp.
but then on that same day, I shared vulnerably to her and our relationship improved after that. i was damn desperate because revival camp was really really damn important to me lah. the thing i wanted to tell y’all is that dont be scared to ask your parents whether yall can go anot. the most they would say that they dont allow, but they wouldn’t scold u or anything. so what harm does it do to just try and persuade ur parents to let yall go? Just wanted to encourage those of you who are scared to ask your parents but do pray!!
