My almost 11-year-old daughter came back from camp and suggested we play a game together. While playing the game she chose, I asked her if God had spoken to her at camp. I used a deep voice as I spoke to her and playfully suggested the voice told her to do something rather silly, like listen to her parents the rest of her life.
She said, “Well, I believe God spoke to me but not like that.”
I sobered up and snapped out of the silly mode in an instant. I wanted to hear all about THIS encounter.
She told me a story about how during one of the meetings the speaker asked if someone believed God was speaking to them to help him on stage, and come on up.
She said she felt a “nudge inside.” She thought more and responded to the nudge, “NO!” but on second thought, she decided she would listen and went up front.
She didn’t give any details other than after she came back to her seat she said, “I felt really good about going up there.”
And I felt really good about a God speaking to my daughter …
and that she listened.
