When the house of God is not about anything or whatever.

Church camp REVIVAL has ended, so is the TURI RESORT batam trip over the weekend.

Do you really love God or just the gifts He has to offer?
I found a release of my soul that was encased in a small world through the past week. Away from the floods of noises, I had perfect solace worshipping God and listening patiently to His word throughout, more geared up also because I was in the warm presence of His beloved chosen people. I have learnt a big deal on how making wise decisions can be often painful and how God can melt one’s defenses in the face of His wonders. Opening up my relationship with somebody was a form of happiness and freedom, getting closer to my church pals was a breakthrough of gold. And my little reminiscing of friendships…Though physically, there was not much of rest, there was livid energy of God’s power that spills out of my veins to fellowship, to lead and to love. I hold scared each moment relishing in the garden walk with God and how He can exalt my horn and extend his hand of favor to every corner of my life, more importantly, is the reminder that we are all created for more. I heard God call to me at the last day of camp that I was not borne to be just an art teacher; my destiny will overcome the rags of worldly disasters. Though obedience can be gut-wrenching, the rewards of obedience will come only if I listen and follow, just like Noah who chose to listen to God’s outlandish request of building an ark in his culture. Though he was slandered and insulted to build an ark in dry land, Noah was named by God as righteous and blameless, one who had truly walked with God. So I will obey, so that my light will not be shut off, and not be a salt that loses its saltiness. God desires us to reach from His hand to His face, like how Jacob did, from Bethel to Penei , and His love language teaching us to treat Him like an honored guest in our own rabbit holes, love the blesser and not the blessings and to love His people, because that’s what he loves most!

Isn’t it magnificent, the wonders of His great love? Can we find it anywhere else? No, no, no. When we don’t scale the heights of Godly love and live the way He wants us to, we forfeit the light we have, we give up the degree of His protection and guidance and answers to our prayers. Prayers are not just about talking to God; it is about experiencing Him totally, immersed completely. It is the end of my mountain top experience, but my soul is filled to its peak.
