Hi everyone! I’m new here and i just like to share my story.
I grew up in a religious family. When i was young, my Grandma (rest in peace) took care of me because my parents were abroad to work that time. My Grandma was once a President of Pastoral Council which means we are involved in our Church’s activities. that was when i was still young.
When i was in High School, thats when my life changed. I enjoyed the company of bad influence kids who taught me how to smoke, do drugs, sex etc. you know, i was “wild” way back. I completely forgot going to church, pray and do everything my grandma taught me. I even made going to church as an “excuse” to my parents so i can go out with my friends. I left my house and stayed with friends house for weeks and not go home. I remember how i shouted at my parents, how i made them cry, how i made them look for me all over the place everyday and night cuz i wasnt going home, how i promised them to change but still i keep on doing the same things all over again.
before graduating from highschool, i stayed away from those kids. promised myself not to do drugs again and never leave home. which i successfully did. I am completely sober.
But when i was in college, i had a serious relationship with this guy. the relationship lasted for almost four years. my whole college years i was with him, i thought he was the one but my parents totally disagreed so there i was again, i lied to my parents the whole time. during my sophomore year in college, i had an abortion… twice. I broke up with him after we graduated.
One day, my uncle asked me if i can go with him on saturday mass. i agreed since i havent been to church for a long time. When i was in the church, i was almost teary eyed because i remembered my Grandma when she was still alive. how we use to go to church together, how we used to participate in church’s activities, how i was once a member of a choir etc. I miss her so much and the things we used to do. i just felt GOD looking at me and saying, “come to me” that was the time i really felt his presence. and the feeling is unexplainable. and to tell you, that was the most happiest feeling i ever felt.
I am thankful that God helped me change. i regularly attend mass and pray everyday. i pray novenas regularly. my favorite is NOVENA TO ST. THERESE THE LITTLE FLOWER.
Guys, i tell you, i would never let a day pass without asking forgiveness to God for all the sins i’ve done esp. abortion. I am planning to go to confession this saturday.
Thanks to God for the new life he has given me. I will never do the things i did ever again. i learned my lesson well. I love you Lord.
JESUS I TRUST IN YOU
