Dreams do come to pass – Part 1

Everyone has their own dreams. Well, at least most people do. Before I stepped into church, I was a person without any dreams and visions. All I knew was that I must study hard and get into a university, subsequently graduate with a good degree, so that I can find a good job. Never would I have imagined that a few years down the road, I could be studying in a university course of my choice, and also live my best life at the same time, doing what I love, loving what I do.

Few years back, I stepped into Heart of God church for my second service. It was two weeks after the dreadful A levels ended and I was very free in life. Really very free. I was captivated by Praise and Worship at the beginning of service and so I sang along with the worship team on stage even though I wasn’t very familiar with the song. Subsequently, I attended service weekly because I felt that the people there were very genuine and friendly to hang out with. Trust me, they made me feel so welcomed that I felt like I was part of the family already. I shall write about them some other time. 🙂

One day as I was singing along during worship in service, I saw a vision of myself singing on stage leading thousands of people into worship. I couldn’t believe it. Yes, I’m a person who loves to sing a lot (mostly in my bathroom though). BUT to sing on stage to thousand of people is a WHOLE NEW DIFFERENT STORY! I brushed that thought aside, thinking that I must be imagining things. Haha I mean many of you, including my closest friends might not know that I was kicked out of choir when I was primary 2. I was totally crushed when my choir teacher said that I couldn’t sing and perhaps should join another CCA. 😦

So yeah, I shall stop writing here for now. (It’s like 3 am now zZZ) Stay tuned for Part 2!

Youth Camp – Igniting the moment

There’s always something special about youth camps in Heart Of God Church. That is none other than the Revival Night sessions after a day of fun and excitement. I vividly recalled the first revival night I attended. It was also the last time that we are going to have it at Serimbun scout camp with a real campfire. Dominic preached about surrendering one’s life and giving our best years to God. He shared about how he gave up sailing (He was so good at it that he could have joined the national team) to serve and give his best in church. He chose significance over success and God didn’t shortchange him. Dom sowed into the lives of many youths and many of them are now leaders in church sowing into the lives of the next generation… It was so so powerful…

This year, we had Revival Night in church. Pastor How preached about “Igniting the moment”. He said it is not milestones in life that will go into eternity; its the ignited moments. I was privileged to be serving on WT as a backup vocalist for Revival Night. As I was on stage, I saw many people tearing as they were touched by the presence of God. Many made the decision to rise up as leaders in His House and came up to the front to get prayed for. The feeling on stage was phenomenal. I was not only touched by His presence but also by the scene that I was seeing. You can catch a glimpse of it from the photo below. God spoke to me that night and encouraged me to keep doing what I am doing, keep loving people and loving life, and most importantly, keep loving Him and His presence. So thankful to be learning and growing under spiritual giants like Pastors… #Bestchurchever
