God is truly a loving God. He allowed me to experience again His goodness through this Committed Servants Weekend in Toril, Davao City. I learned that God is the source of everything that we have in this world. He is the source of our power and strength. He also gave us the power to resist every temptation that comes our way. Also, in God’s power, we have the strength to endure sufferings and hardships. We also have the power to serve others. If we have God’s power and if we allow that power to be in us, we will have eternal life in His love and mercy. In our powerless life, God wants us to feel weak so that He can enter in our human physical and spiritual emotion. He wants us to realize that only through Him we can feel light, we can feel total happiness.
I was blessed since I entered this SFL community. It is only here that I felt a genuine and unconditional love from my brothers and sisters. My CSW experience reminded me of how blessed I am to have all the resources to get closer to God. It is truly the best training ground for us leaders. I learned how to lead my brothers and sisters in a proper way. Though I felt like giving up sometimes, still I manage not to do so. I realized that when we serve God, we should not allow negativity to hinder us. We should always remember that God is a powerful God. That He can take away all our sufferings if we only seek Him. Now, I can proudly say, “I am powered up!” May God be praised!
