My almost 11 year old daughter came back from camp and suggested we play a game together. During our playing of the game she chose I asked her if God had spoken to her at camp and then I used some deep voice and playfully suggested it spoke to 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.” Now I was very sobered 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 their meetings that the speaker asked if someone believed God was speaking to them to come up and help him on stage to do so and come on up. She said she felt a “nudge inside” as
she thought about it and immediately said “NO!” but then on second thought she decided she would listen and went up front. She didn’t give much more detail 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.
