21 Oct Receiving The Gift Of Tongues
The gift of tongues is sometimes a confusing and controversial topic. I share about my personal experience with the gift of tongues and how it happened for me. Again, everyone is different and this is purely my personal experience and journey.

Baptised in Holy Spirit, prayer minister laid hands to pray for spiritual gifts, including the gift of tongues.
21 Oct 2018:
Was spending time in worship, prayers and conversation with God for about 30mins when the presence of God became very strong and felt immense emotions. Later I was cutting apples in the kitchen and the presence of God become strong again. I was eating apples in the living room when I felt this urge to stand up and starting blabbering in tongues, outside of my control. It’s a few syllabus each time and it repeated for about 5 times.
Holy Spirit teaching me to speak in tongues was very much like how a baby learns a new language.

Tongue moved while I’m sleeping. No sound came out. I had great “wifi” (spiritual connection to God)
Wife saw my tongue moving.

After Sunday service during the song of response, I started speaking in tongues out of my control. I couldn’t stop. In my mind there were no words, only a thought of Hallelujah. This lasted for about 10-15 mins.
After service I tried. I can now start and stop at will but still a bit newbie.
The next morning I tried while showering, I cannot start at will.
After morning prayers, I tried, I can start and stop at will.
Later on I recognise that I was given tongues of adoration, of praise and thanksgiving.
