Hey everyone! It's Dj here. First off let me tell you I'm 13. So some of you kind of know what I'm going through right now. I go to a Church called First Baptist Church of Plaquemine. Our youth group is awesome. Especially our leader Bro. Keith H.
Well we went to Centrifuge Camp at Mississippi College on June 28-July 3 2009. Now, I believe there is a God, and that he died on the Cross for our sins.
But the first few days, I was kind of like "bleh". I was happy to be away from my mom.
The bible study group I was in was called "RUMBLE!"
Well about on wednesday. I think it was. Our group leader named John Barron, (now it was towards the end of bible study and we just came back from rec. So we were hot & sweaty, and everything).
Then John said, "OK everyone. Just bow your heads, remove hats if you have them, and just talk to God. Don't just keep asking him for something, you're not his boss, you are his children. But thank him or something and listen to what he has to say. You have 10 minutes. Go."
So, I bowed my head, and my prayer went like this,
"Dear God, Thank you! Thank you for everything! Lord, I know you know this, but I love you. Lord, I cast all my cares, burdens, and worries up to you. Lord, please come and fix my broken and hindered soul. Lord, if there is anything, anything at all you need to tell me please tell me, Lord God, I am listening."
Then all of a sudden, it got really hot, and I started sweating. I opened my eyes and looked around, I seemed to be the only one that noticed, John looked at me and mouthed, "You ok?" I nodded and closed my eyes again. I asked, "lord are you there, please speak to me, I am listening." after about 5 minutes of waiting, I heard a powerful, mighty, loving, controlling, forgiving voice, that cut through all of my thoughts and I could only focus on the voice, "I AM." I looked around, stunned! The voice sounded like it was right in my ear, but no one was there. And everyone was still praying.
I closed my eyes once again bowed my head, "Lord please forgive me of my sins, for I am a sinner!" Then the voice said, "I HAVE FORGIVEN YOU OF YOUR SINS, AND I HAVE FORGOTTEN THEM"." I said, "Lord if there is any thing you need or want to tell me please tell me" "I HAVE BIG PLANS FOR YOU. I SEE A GREAT FUTURE AHEAD OF YOU." I said "thank you LORD". And I slowly felt the voice going away.
And then I started thinking about being a missionary, preacher, or student youth group leader. Then I yelled out, "I"M GOING TO SEMINARY!" and everyone just smiled.
And that was the end of my experience. But, I shared it with Bro. Keith and almost everyone in my youth group.
OK, now I need some help, I am not sure if that was my mind tricking me, because it has done that before. So can any of you try and help me to clear it up?
Oh and while we were at camp this awesome band called reverchon was there, there songs "open up the sky", and "overtake me" are the best. Go to www.reverchonband.com, but please anyone help me?
