Hey everybody! I'm so sorry that it's been such a long time since my last post! A lot has happened but a lot of it has been a change in the way I see things!
For this story travel back in time with me to week 5 of my DTS (the 8th week just ended). It's Holy Spirit week and David Gava is the lecturer for that week. He was sharing on how Holy Spirit is a person and that He's relatable to us. Not some mystic force/energy that comes from God, rather a separate being in the God head. David Gava wanted us to get more intimate and comfortable with Holy Spirit . He wanted us to view Him as the being that He is. You wouldn't call your friend "the Robert" you would call him "Robert." So how come we call Holy Spirit, "the Holy Spirit?" Even changing what I called Holy Spirit has changed the way that I view him. I feel more intimate and close to him. But that's not the story I want to tell...
Towards the end of the week David Gava wanted us to practice hearing Holy Spirit, so he had us form 2 circles - an inner circle and an outer circle. He had the inner circle go first; they had 20 seconds to listen to Holy Spirit and tell us what He was saying. Then the inner circle shifted over two people, and the outer circle would hear from Holy Spirit for the new people in front of them. We did this a few times, and after each time I got more and more confident. I also knew we only had a few more minutes before we were released for lunch so I was a little excited.
Finally on the last "rotation" after we had a word for the people in front of us, he wanted us to pray for healing if the person needed healing. "Oh great," I thought. I wasn't comfortable doing this and I was getting a little upset that they went past the time, because I was getting hungry. So I asked the person in front of me if she needed any prayer for healing and she said yes. Again I thought "Oh great." I asked her what for and she wasn't able to explain in a lot of detail, all she said was that she needed alignment in her body. So I started praying and I felt like I was really getting into it and I was believing everything I said. I finished praying and I quickly left because we were dismissed for lunch.
Now lets flash forward to this week. Its Thursday night - May 2nd - and we are having our usual Thursday night Ohana court. The girl I had prayed for, in week 5, was sitting right behind me but I never noticed her until the end of the night. After Ohana court I turned around and she asked me if I remembered her and then she was reminding me of the day I prayed for her.
She went on to tell me that that night after I prayed for her, she was going to bed and she felt that everything had been aligned! She also said that it hasn't been misaligned since that night! I was so stoked to hear this!! It was 3 weeks late but I'm still so glad that she told me!
All I can say is "Go God!" I know that it wasn't because of what I said or because of the way I said it, but it was because God is so great and He's a healer! I cannot wait to tell you more stories about how God has used me for His glory!
