I can clearly remember the moment when I said YES to God’s call. It was last September 8, 2011 – exactly a year ago when I joined CFC SFL and that was LIFE CHANGING. I thought that the “events” from September 8, 2010 will hinder me from coming back to God. But then He is really a God of second chances. I have experienced an OVERFLOW of God’s love through the wonderful people in the community. I gained new friends, brothers, sisters and even a family. I also witnessed the goodness of God in other people. God has been really working in my life; I know that God has planned the BEST for me. That’s why I am more thrilled to live a life surrendered to God and now I am experiencing total happiness, real freedom and true love. This is all because of Him.
Today, September 8, 2012 marks another significant moment in my life. I have come to understand that God has been sending me messages through Mama Mary. Like Her,I should be open to whatever God wants me to do. I may not fully understand, but like Mary I will embrace God’s plan without needing to know all of the details. I completely submit myself to God’s will. I know this is just a start of a life that You wanted me to have. Help me be the best possible version of myself so I can serve and love You more.
I trust You with my life and now I am saying “YES” again to You. May it be done to me according to Your word.
Happy anniversary, batchmates! 🙂
Happy Birthday, MAMA MARY! 🙂
