Wow. It was just amazing! I am so glad I went there for LC! 🙂 I think recently my walk had been quite bland and I really wanted a breakthrough and for God to break my heart. Well, God did.
First of all, the worship atmosphere. Incredible. I think I have been worshiping in R-AGE for so long that I sometimes forget the amazing feeling of congregational worship. Sis ZF told me that she doesn’t understand why it was so good. Like she still needed to look at lyrics and sing along, but she could worship very easily! I told her that almost 80% of worship is on the congregation. I recalled a period of time back in Rhema Confenrence. I remembered that the worship atmosphere was so much different than now. Everyone was hyped up everyone had fire for the Lord! Now sad to say, the congregation isn’t half as responsive and the worship atmosphere has been going down…. 😦
God’s presence in the worship atmosphere there was just so tangible and thick(but not suffocating). It was interesting, they only played two songs and neither were very emo nor praise-y, but the congre’s energy just carried it! Lord, thank you for letting me experience worship in this way.
Then, when they showed the videos, perhaps VP was the reason; I started dissecting the video and seeing weakness in audio. However, the shots was well shot! But the voice-overs, transition in music etc was a bit choppy! But I think the editor just didn’t have enough time!
Then, there was this speaker named, “Crystal Goh”. When she spoke she had a shaky voice due to her vocal condition. Then she took up the ukulele and started to sing. WOW. Suddenly, her shaky voice disappeared and an beautiful and intimate voice started to sing. Though there were a few notes off here and there, but it was REALLY impressive! I just listened and looked in amazement.
Then, came the speaker. I did not catch her name, but her words and conviction was just incredible. I loved how she made it funny for a while, then she brought all the attention to the Lord, saying that nothing that she says can change us; only Jesus can. Humbling herself. She tell told of a story of a Thai girl. She brought out a glass cup and said that this was you when God created you. Flawless and simply beautiful. She said that the Thai girl was in the poorest part of Thailand and that she was the poorest of the poor. Her father was a knife maker and her mother makes charcoal. Well, she had her father, that is not te norm in Thailand! So she is lucky isn’t she? But no. Her father was a drunk and whenever she came home, she had to make sure if her father was sober. If he is not, she had to quickly hide the knifes, if not he is going to hurt us again. Then she was sold to someone else. Then, she was tricked into prostitution. The telling of the story just invoked too much emotion. It was an incredible testimony. The Thai girl grew up and she became an amazing evangelist.
She then talked about the woman that was bleeding for 12 years and just wanted to touch Jesus’ garments to get healed. She now was healed and now found new identity as God’s daughter.
She told us not to go out to the mission field just because Jesus said so. Go out because you are so loved that you can’t help it but go. He told us to just get loved before going out. Don’t burn out and just get loved.
I give thanks Lord.
The Thai Girl prayed for us afterwards when the speaker introduced her to us. Honestly, I want prayer. I want to go up to the anointed and have then pray for me so that I can receive more. Lord, please give me strength to run! Give me strength to love you. Lord, please let me just sit here and be loved by you. Father, please stay with me.
Thank you Lord!
