Since last year, I am really looking forward for the 2012 World Singles Congress. I received many blessings right after the WSC 2011 in Tarlac that’s why I am very excited to experience this year’s Congress entitled, “Dare to Live.” All started when I was reading my bible one night and the scriptures said that I should use and share my talents for God. I keep thinking about it for awhile but then I also ignore the thought.
I was a dancer since I was a child; I was an active member of a dance club before. I also joined several competitions in high school such as the Johnson and Johnson’s dance contest and Clean and Clear dance competitions, even those that are sponsored by “Candy Mag”, a known teen magazine.
I remember dancing in College as well but after graduating, I was too consumed with work the only activity that I have that time is with the Community I am in.
I prayed to God and asked Him for a sign, that if anyone will invite me to join a dance ministry I will say yes Lord. Unexpectedly a friend of mine named, Abu and his girlfriend Deney were part of the Dance Ministry for WSC. They invited me to serve and gave me the practice schedule. I am so excited even during the practices, I was looking forward to the type of dance, if there are difficult steps and honestly at first, I’m a bit worried about the practice time itself. But God assures me that everything can be done with His help!
I feel happy even in those times that I was not feeling well. After so many practices my body started to ache, I tried taking pain reliever but still I felt so much pain on my legs. Because of this I had a hard time doing the routines for the “I’m Alive” session. I almost cried during our last practice and the fear of committing mistakes on stage while performing.
It was during the Worship when the song “Mighty to Save” was being played and sung that I really felt God talking to me. It was my favourite song too. I deeply prayed to God in the back stage. Before I went on stage I lift my legs and offer the pain that I’m feeling at that very moment to Him. And I also pray that God will help me do the dance routine perfectly.
I cannot express how amazing He really is. “ALIVE na ALIVE si God!”
After the “I’m Alive” segment at the side of the stage I exclaimed, “Thank you GOD!!!!” I thank Him for healing me and for being with me throughout the whole performance. Truly, He is a Great God!
Papa God I will dance with and for You forever.
WSC 2012 DARE TO LIVE!!!
