Esmanda Wong's Story (Awakening)
Updated: Jun 5, 2021
I am a second generation Christian. Coming from a Christian family, I grew up in church and always heard about how God loves us and we should love Him. However, this never really resonated with me that much, and I never experienced the love of God that was preached to me. It was not until I was 17 years old, when I went for my church’s youth camp. During one of the night worship sessions, everyone was worshipping their hearts out and God was really moving in the place. We were singing “Till I see you” and when we reached the line in the chorus that says “I will live to love you”, I just broke down. At that moment, God showed me how much He loves me and I just felt so unworthy of this immense amount of love showered upon me. I cried knowing that all God wanted for me to do in response to this great love was to live loving Him, and yet I was not doing that. From that moment, I decided to recommit my life back to God and to live every day loving God because He first loved us.
