My experience at Camp Remix has changed my life. I went to camp not knowing exactly what was going to happen. All I knew was that I'd learn way more about God, but I didn't know I would find my purpose in life and fully give my life to God.
For the past 4 years I have been carrying burdens and burdens over my shoulder with family issues and self consciousness. I spoke to a friend previously about it and while I was sitting in the service and Chad, I believe it was, spoke about how we shouldn't be carrying others burdens and we shouldn't have to think that we had to do it. It instantly spoke to me and I broke down crying because that's all I have been doing for years and years.
God certainly spoke to me in that moment and broke those chains for me. He set me free. I always thought my life was what I would make of it and through the hard work that I would put towards getting that certain degree, but after two sessions, I have found my true purpose for my life being on this earth and that is ministering to youth and the broken hearted. Ever since I was very young I dreamed of being a detective and investigating crimes and I was so certain that, that was my purpose. It's not and I know that now.
I realized this when I was in the "Being Immersed" session with Joshua. He spoke about how we can not hold onto what we have planned for our life, and also pick up God's plan too. I realized also when Paula Taylor had us write our mission statement and I dawned on me that this is what I needed. My mission statement at the end of her session was, "My purpose in life is to give and counsel to the lost people and to challenge them and work with them to seek prayer through God ." God spoke to me so many times and has fully released me of all my burdens and of my repetitive sin.
I came to this camp lost and so uncertain about everything. I left that camp knowing who I am, and knowing what my mission is in my life. My family is now in God's hands and I will constantly be praying for them to seek our heavenly father above. I was baptized the last day of camp and as I was coming out of the water, I felt this happiness and joy that I have never felt before! I felt as if I was being reborn again and so pure and clean of all my sins.
God has certain done some amazing works in my life in such a short time. I'm not ashamed to say that I am a child of God. He is my father! He is my life! He is my savior! I have thus burning fire inside of me to seek and know more about him. I have never felt this way and I'm so glad Elevate Remix gave me this opportunity to experience. Thank you to everyone!
