A Life Changing Summer
As an aunt of 4 nieces and 3 nephews, I feel proud and glad when seeing them growing up spiritually and mentally. Tear is coming out from my eyes. Joy is filling my heart. Nothing is better than that. God is awesome and amazing.
My eldest niece, Esther; 17 years old, went to a mission trip for two months. She came back a few days ago. Every word that came out from her mouth is God. She shared with me how God had taught and prepared her during the first month, and how God had used her during the second month. During the first month, God taught her that she is beautiful even without her makeup on; by the way it is the teenage culture at here to put on makeup even you are at home. God showed her that she is beautiful through others’ word; her friends told her that they saw glory in her. God taught her how to share gospel to others. God also taught her to prophesy to others. During the second month, she spoke many words of knowledge to others and prayed for healing. God is awesome, it does not matter who you are, how old you are, He can use you. I see how God has used her. Before she went to this mission trip, someone actually prophesied to her that she was going to use her mouth to serve God, and this summer would be a life changing summer. Indeed, God has corroborated His words.
My nephew, Ezra; 13 years old, went to a discovery camp. He told me that how he encountered God through worship and prayer. How he learn to serve God through serving others. He also shared with me when he prayed for his friend, and his friend got healed. Another thing that I want to share about him is his worship. My family and I always though that he would be a great drummer since he was a little boy. However, God’s plan is different from us. Ezra’s guitar skill is fantastic compare to drum. There was one Sunday service; he was playing with his youth group for Sunday worship, oh dear,,,,,his guitar skill and voice in amazing. The way he worship God with his voice and guitar was so sweet. This young guy, you never though that God will use him so amazingly. No doubt, that God is using him.
My niece, Kar Yee; 13 years old, in Malaysia accepted Christ a few months ago. Her speed for God is faster than a rocket. I know not much about her since I am here. All I want to share about her is her desire for God is more than many of us.
I praise God for His works in their life. Seeing God’s works in their life encourages me a lot. God can use a little fellow or a big fellow to do great things in His Kingdom as long as you are willing to be used by God.
