graces from ASIA PACIFIC CLC
yesterday marked the end of the asia pacific convention of the christian life community. i experienced the last day of the event. when we arrived at the convention center, they were having their final mass and it was the offertory part, wherein they are offering the graces they received. it was just so appropriate since i feel that i'm harvesting graces from the last week.
there were two major graces that i received.
- i feel that i'm very proud to be filipino. i realized how much we can give to the world given what we can do as a people and as a nation. no matter how much negativity there is in our government or in our international image, we are still blessed as a people. God still gives us the graces we need and we should think of ways how we can be more of service to Him as a people.
- i'm very proud to be an aclcer but apart from that, the AP meet, gave me a bigger view of what it means to be a clcer. God's work in the world is not yet done and we're still invited to join Him as co-creators for His greater glory.
on the side, moreover, i realized how much i did not listen to God in my prayers, which prevented me from trusting Him a lot. inasmuch as i would like to have everything under my control, i realized how imperfect i am and that i should trust Him more. there i realized that those i have been tempted to control were already okay. now, i am seeing with new eyes.
