To be completely honest, I went into Challenge with the mindset that I just needed to get through the week. I had drifted away from God and didn’t really feel his presence anywhere in my life. But at the beginning of the first gathering, there was a prayer where we invited God to do anything He wanted in our lives that week, which was the beginning of a life changing experience for me.
That week, I progressively began to feel closer to God than I had ever been before, and He opened me up to confess so many things I had closed off for months. I was living such a sinful life, which needed to stop. I came to realize that I needed to make some significant changes in my life if I wanted to pursue a holy relationship with God. So I am making those changes.
I’m so super thankful that I was able to go to Challenge, because through that, God ultimately changed my life for the better. It’s an experience I’ll never forget.
