How my spiritual journey started was with the flyer that was tagged in my facebook account by a high school friend, January of last year (Jan. 2011). It was an invite to attend the Christian Life Program conducted by the spiritual community, Singles for Christ. My friend and I knew in an instant that it was the answer to the spiritual longingness and emptiness that we feel deep inside. Without forcing one another, hesitations and whatsoever, we went to it. And there, without fast absorption of the weekly talks, i continued attending till I reached the Lord’s day. Only did I know that it was the start of my spiritual transformation.
Almost everyday of my life, i encounter situation that weakens me, hurts me, saddens me, and breaks my spirit. But most of the time, i had learned to love, to trust, to ask for forgiveness, to let go and to surrender everything to God. He is always with me. And with this security, it brought me so much strength and passion to live life with optimism and to serve despite overwhelming odds and difficulties. I met people who inspire me in one way or another. And the rest of wonderful things followed.
God has let my life unfold in ways i could clearly understand that everything in my life, good and not so good, are all purpose-driven. I want to live my life according to God’s purpose. His purpose for my existence which is to glorify and serve Him through serving others. This is the best use of life.
Whenever I watch the video of the CLP journey of my batch, I get goose bumps and teary-eyed, tears of joy with a BIG SMILE. A lot, from the inside, has changed a year ago.
Thank you SFC West B1-A for a great service. 🙂
