Coming back from a 4 day 3 night youth retreat in New Jersey was something that was long been overdue. Since this was the first year my youth in my church went (out of the 25 years this has been going on), it was an eye-opener.
I havent praised, worshiped and been renewed like that in a long time. Losing my voice multiple times from shouting, singing and praising. Sweat dripping down my face from dancing and tears were like a waterfall nonstop as I felt the holy spirit take over me.
The Lord works in magical ways and there was a reason for me to go. The message that was being given, the songs that were being sung, the spirits that people were touching allowed me to know, love, and see my God.
I havent felt this free, alive and blessed since being baptized back in June 2011 and this retreat allowed me to see the purpose of that and fight away the negativity, bad “mojo”, and going Beyond the Veil (these of the retreat).
I feel alive and hopeful, and determine to tackle any obstacle my way because I know the Lord is on my side.
