04 Aug COURAGEOUS TO OVERCOME
by Celestie Liew, Acts Cyberjaya
Back in 2019, I attended Bloom for the first time, and it happened to be during one of my toughest years at university. I was in my first year, had multiple leadership roles in church and my exam results were not great.
I was constantly anxious for having to keep up expectations, was fearful of being replaced and felt myself to be incompetent. During worship in Bloom, I broke down and cried for help. After prayer, God restored my spirit and willpower to carry on.
The day after, I had an event to pull off. I was a one-woman show preparing two meals for over 80 people. I felt the task was impossible, yet I heard the Holy Spirit telling me that even though it feels like a dead end, God will give me supernatural strength to get it done.
So I trusted Him and successfully set up the lunch event on my own. My team leaders acknowledged my efforts and praised my courage to pull through despite other teammates pulling out at the last minute.
My testimony is that God empowered me to be courageous amidst an unfavourable environment. All I needed was to trust Him to take the wheel and stop trying to take control.

For me, being courageous is going forth despite the fears and hardships, as I know that God is ready and capable to bring breakthrough.
