On my campus we have an event on Wednesdays called Praise in the Pub. We gather in the pub on campus and have an hour of worship, usually with a speaker somewhere in the middle. I go every week and I have often felt the presence of the Holy Spirit during worship. But tonight was different.
I'm not entirely sure how to describe what I felt. It was an overwhelming emotion, like I didn't know whether to laugh or cry. It welled up inside me until I thought I might burst from the energy. I've felt this before, so though it excited me, it did not suprise me. But what happened next was weird. We were praying and I felt this... Force I guess, pressing against my back. I'm not sure exactly how to describe what it felt like, but it was pushing me forward. It wasn't like hands on my back or anything, just a kind of force. And it wasn't harsh or demanding, just a kind of gentle pushing. It was so strange, I had to physically stop myself from either stepping forward or falling down. When we finished praying the feeling passed. We sang our last song and I drove home. Since I have had just the most wonderful sense of peace, like a very tangible knowledge that God is everything I could ever need and so much more.
I feel like the Spirit was trying to tell me something. Like I'm supposed to move forward, to do something, I'm just not sure what. I guess I'll have to keep praying about it and see. Has anyone ever felt something like this before?
