The winter camp meeting of 2010 was the greatest camp meeting of my life. It started with the first few days about hungering for the things of God. Letting the fire burn out what is not of Him. Drawing nearer to God and getting rid of the things of the flesh. As the meetings continued even though I was serving you could feel the atmosphere and presence of God building. On Monday night pastor Adonica had tried to share her testimony on when she had been touched by the Lord. As people were laughing and being ministered to I asked the Lord to touch me in the same way. I reminded Him that His word says that he is not a respecter of persons and if he touched others that were seeking Him he would have to do the same for me. After praying about it that night, I went on pretty well forgetting about what I had asked Him and just kept seeking his presence. The next couple of days were about consecration and hunger and you could sense the meetings growing.
Jan 28th 2010 came. It was Thursday night. That evening there were many reasons that I could have chosen not to come, but, to me there was no other option. I wanted to be touched by Him. The only reason I had moved to Tampa to the River was to meet God. It had cost me everything.
That night He changed my life. I still can’t even talk about it but for some reason I can type it. I was seated behind Pastors Allen and Pastor Todd. When I felt the presence and power of God coming from the center stage area where Pastor Rodney was ministering.
I watched as both Pastors fell out of their seats in front of me and I tried to stay seated because I was serving but was unable to. For the next three hours I was on the floor laughing and crying as the Presence of God was doing a work in me. There where areas in my life that were changed instantly, others that I am still finding out about. I have been more equipped to handle the storms that have been coming against me. I know there are things that have not come to fruition that were imparted to me that night.
I am hungrier for a move of God than ever before. God answered my prayer four nights later. To be there and see Pastor Rodney and his family on what he called the highlight of his 30 years in ministry was an honor and a privilege. I am marked by God and I will never be the same.
