“If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me. For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it. For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?” (Matthew 16:24-26)

I don’t know where to start describing my life before. I been struggling for so long just to live the best of life. I spent so much of my time for my own and for myself. Living a life which I think the best life I’ve ever had. Vices that makes me feel a better person, abusing myself makes me feel strong, being with people who cares nothing but pleasure, enjoyment, spending for those things that give them happiness. That was my life…before.

I knew Him for a while, I am starting to understand His purpose in my life, I am starting to build a relationship with Him but I guess and Hopefully a conclusion with my relationship with Him happens October 3, 2010, Sunday, at AIM Conference Hall, at the third floor, a group of people are gathering to celebrate life and to Praise God. It’s an ordinary Sunday for me and never expect that this day will change my life…forever.

The service talks about a series of OPM (Original Pilipino Mindset). “Lagay, Lakad, Lusot” It’s so interesting to know that these things are happening in my life…I mean, I am practicing it…it’s just like a norm in the society but not realizing that it’s wrong. At the end of the sermon I realized that everything in the talk is all about me…I am living in the world full of struggling, struggling for nothing and that makes me realized that I have surrender to the Lord, as He said in Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” That time I know and I can feel it…the Holy Spirit is present…I feel something that I’ve never felt before and so hard to explain and to describe what I felt that time. I surrender everything to Him and I feel the freedom that I been waiting for my whole life.

Now…I have nothing to worry, I have nothing fear for I know the Lord is with me and I am starting to walk my life with HIM and only HIM.
