Hannah’s story from the DY Weekend away
It never gets old, God is so incredible! This past weekend there were around 90 young people all in pursuit of Him; there is something so powerfully beautiful in seeing hearts and souls cry out to their Father in praise, in joy, in hunger. Personally, I am constantly hungry for Him, I always want more, knowing there is far more to Him than I can ever possibly grasp. My past is riddled with walls that I have put up around me, around my heart and around my God. Only recently have I begun to let those walls down and realise that God cannot be boxed in and does not have limitations.
On Friday night, in ministry time, I remember praying for more of Him but in a way that was hitting my fears as well as my excited expectations; I knew that He could show me something of His power and glory and I was terrified. But I asked for it anyway, “Let your glory fall on me, Father. I am beyond terrified but let your glory fall.”
I began to become physically weighed down — by seemingly nothing! At first, my hands couldn’t bear the invisible weight, then I needed to sit on my chair but that wasn’t low enough, I then slid down to the floor (quite awkwardly stuck between two chairs) with the weight of His glory pressing down on me. I kept praying for more! I knew that He was breaking down my walls of limited expectation. It was incredible. My face couldn’t move at any speed faster than slow motion as I continued to say the words over and over, “Let your glory fall.” I thank God for His power, for He is both our loving Father and also the Lord of all authority. Amazing.
