RECONNECT




Guess what? I just made THE most important decision of my life so far. I got myself baptized ‘again’ last Sunday.

“The old has gone, the new has come.”

Even my mom got surprised. Being a devout Catholic, she wasn’t expecting me to do such a thing. I myself was born, raised, and educated a Catholic, but I dunno, I felt that something (or someone) was missing. For the longest time I had been living my life not really knowing my purpose. I kept on searching & searching, and I would always pray to Him, “Lord God, guide me and lead me to the right path.” I was lost big time.

Then two incidents happened: (1) I lost my job the second time around, and (2) I attended a Sunday service at this church with a blogger friend.

My life has been changed eversince.

  5. Congrats, ser! Pag may ganyang okasyon sa amin na ganyan, isa lang ang kinakanta namin, "I have decided to follow Jesus."

    Praise God for your life!

  6. congratulations on finding your right path :)

    basta ang tandaan lang, ang mas mahalaga kesa sa pagpili ng religion ay ang sunod sa values at pagiging mabuting tao :D We only have 1 God, but with different names, IMHO.

  7. This act is just the beginning, we need to live up to our faith and share it with others. That way, we are truly baptized in the Lord's body.

    God bless you always. Things get rough but we can always get past them if we pray.

  8. Okay uulitin ko ang comment ko.

    Naluha me sa picture. Promise! Baptism is a declaration of faith and the best part of this, is our day to day living the faith we have in Jesus. Christian life is hard really really hard but at the end of the far horizon (oo may ganyan) we have satisfaction. We are filled of this great force that nobody can ever fill. That is the Love of God.

    I really don't wanna be churchy in my comment because I am not pefect and I am a work in progress. I guess what I'm really saying is I saw how you progress in knowing God. I saw how God move in your life. And that made me really really happy. I praise God for the day you went to Church, join the Small Group and eventually seeing you progress in knowing our Lord and our savior.

    Fine ang drama.

    It's not so Jepoy! Approve mo to!

  9. Wow, that IS a huge step. I wish you well.

    The journey to finding truth and all its meaning is often slow and laborious, but in the end, if we persist, I'd like to think we find it eventually.

  10. THAT CHANGE MIGHT BE A GOOD START, LOOK AT THE BRIGHT SIDE OF IT. YOU JUST SURRENDERED YOUR LIFE TO HIM, NOW YOU'RE BOUND TO HOPE AND WITNESS HOW HE WORKS OUT HIS PLAN FOR YOU. BELIEVE.
