Increase My Faith, O Lord

In times of trouble, I start off with worrying and later on remember the Lord. During my last confession, I said this and the priest chuckled at me. He said, ask the Lord to increase your faith so you will stop worrying. That’s when I reflected- true though.

If I have the Lord and if I give my 100% trust on Him, what shall I worry for?

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” – John 14:12

Another Calling

We had our Liturgical Bible Study yesterday which made us realize a lot of things. I was with my schoolmates who happens to be a member of my youth org as well. And there were a lot of reflections and realizations.

We were just 7 yesterday which is very unusual to a Bible study session but it’s okay because we’re just starting our mission to build up an organization in our school to let more youth know Christ. The 7 of us were called to serve and to lead for the upcoming Bible study sessions- however yesterday, there was a LOT of revelations and all of us realized that we are all being called.

If you can still remember in my last post, I said yes to His calling. I said yes to become a servant and now, to train my members to be more inclined with Christ.

Yesterday, it is as if I was being called again. Called to spread His words and conduct a Bible study meeting. All the 7 of us were being called. And I’m glad— I’m honestly glad that all the 7 of us were ready to accept whatever will come in our way. We’re ready to serve. I’m ready to serve the school and make the students know Christ.


 

Saying Yes

Before I joined the community, I knew it wasn’t going to be easy. I knew I’ll have to commit and commitment is my worst fear- I honestly didn’t like committing myself because I know it’ll hurt otherwise. But it was for the Lord, I thought. Why would I be scared to commit and let Him use me to spread His kindness and words?

I never thought I’ll be this close to God. But I did.

I never thought I’ll commit and say yes to Him. But I did.

I never knew He’ll work wonders for my life. But He did.

The day of my youth camp was gloomy, it was cold and raining, and I honestly thought that it would be better to stay in bed and just sleep. But then I just saw myself packing things for the three days two nights camp, and suddenly, I was there. There were talks and sessions during the camp, I think I have listened to some, but probably slept at other talks (honestly). The camp was life changing and there I truly met the Lord, and know things about Him that I haven’t really known before.

Saying yes to Him was everything.

It was superficial. It was magical.

Following Him and serving Him is never easy, but it will be surpassed because He provides. He always does.

Now, He’s giving me a task and I think I’m about to say yes to Him again. He’s given me another chance to know Him better. I am honestly having second thoughts right now but probably, I’ll say yes.


EDIT: Today was the training about the ‘task’ that I’m saying in this post. I’ve said yes. I did. And now I can’t wait to see what will happen in my life even more. 🙂

If you’re wondering what was the ‘task’– I’ve become a household servant. I’m no longer a member (I still am) but now it has levelled up. I will now arrange household meetings and such. 🙂
