Youth camp

Woo back from my 5 day youth camp...all in all...i think it was rather okay... though the message that was given meant alot, it didn't really strike me in anyway were too few but those few ones were exciting..

I think i the highlight of the camp would be the high praise that was held the night b4 the last night of camp. I went in the worship hall strong and didn't want to succumb to hypocrisy of breaking down, rededicating my faith only to find me returning back to my normal self few mths later...i remember a long time ago back when i was in my early years of high school..back when the church was not renovated and we still had two services. During one of the youth fellowship meetings, eric asked me why didn't i go out during the call in that camp. I answered with the same reasons i have now.

So why? why do i think that there the high praise was the highlight? Yes, the music was good. Yes, the worship was power packed. But it wasn't those which affected me. Sticking to those reasons i gave many years back i hid myself in a corner wanting nothing to do with the alter call. Wanting no one to come and pray for me for i was not gonna rededicate. But at that precise moment when i was about to walk out of the hall to take another breather, Raymond came and talked to me. He then prayed for me. At that moment, a chill went up my spine and i was more sensitive to the lyrics of the songs and the prayer he said. Guilt came in. Listening to ppl give their praises to the Lord. And here am i, kinda backsliding a little. The words of Raymond's prayer kinda affected me alot. He made reminded me how long i was with ssgc and how long i have been with God through all the years. The good the bad. The times i doubted Him and the times He was there for me. The fact that it was raymond who came and prayed for me was shocker too. Perhaps it is a sign from God sensing my doubt and showing signs that He really trully is there.

Although those happened, i still didn feel that calling to rededicate and change 180 in a snap. Probably it would have to take time but for now i still feel tat im the same bryan who came to camp on the first day. But for now, i know that He is out there watching over me. Watchin my every move.

I'm sorry JinFong. I know you hoped this camp would really make a big change in my walk with God. Perhaps it did but results aren't shown yet for i might still be transforming.

I'm sorry Sarah. For not being there for you to advice and to listen to you when u broke down for i myself wasn't sure of what i was feeling. I felt useless as a senior and a friend when i had nothing to say to you.

And lastly, im sorry God for how i'm living my life for it is not the life You want me to lead. I can't change instantly but i'll try my best too.
