Friday 4th May
It’s Youth Camp! I’m so excited, I’ve been waiting for this day for so long, and it’s finally here. I bet the place is going to be so glamorous, with shiny bathrooms and plumped pillows. I hope I’ll be in the same room as my best friend Tosin. We went to Morrison’s to get snacks for the coach, but we had to run all the way back because the coach was leaving in six minutes! It was so funny!
Oh, that’s not the only reason why I can’t wait there; I’m bound to receive blessings there. I’m expecting my Baptism of the Holy Ghost by God’s grace!
The coach journey was marvellous! I sat with Tosin and we had so much fun. Unfortunately, I’m not in the same room as Tosin, but I’m with people I know. We just keep talking and talking, but we have to go to sleep now. It’s almost 1:00 in the morning!
Saturday 5th May
It was so exiting today! We had fun creating armour for people in different difficult situations and we found solutions for them. Then it was time for Sports. I had signed up for abseiling. It was so scary! When we were doing zip-wiring, I was so scared to jump off the edge. When I did, it was like I lost all gravity and was flying. It was such a fantastic moment, although it only lasted a few minutes.
Oh my goodness! The evening service was such a blessing! About eight people got blessed. I prayed with Tosin today and she got saved! Thank God! My heart is bubbling with joy because she’s finally saved. She said she found it hard because it seemed as if something was blocking her way. I told her “If you ever feel that way, sincerely tell God that you don’t want them in your way. Consecrate yourself to God and just let go”.
If you are in the process of praying for a blessing, make sure you ask God to take away anything that may be blocking your way. It may be pride, doubt, unforgiveness, or anything that is in you that you are holding on to. Just let it all go.
Monday 7th May
I couldn’t write anything yesterday because I slept so late. I slept late yesterday because it was the best night of Youth Camp. Yesterday I lost many things, but I found them. I lost my glasses and my sister’s phone, but I found them. Best of all, I had lost my Salvation and sanctification because of doubt, but God miraculously saved and sanctified me. Oh my, it was an indescribable experience. Now that I am back home, I can’t help but smile at how merciful God was to come down and bless me. Tosin got sanctified too.
Here’s a word of advice. Never let the devil make you question your salvation. He used this method to cheat people of their blessings; I’m talking from experience! Ask God to equip you with the right armour and you will never fall for the devil’s tricks, by the Grace of God.
As well as my first Youth Camp, it will also be the most memorable Youth Camp.
