GOD IS GOOD
GOD WORKS MIRACLES
BELIEVE. PRAY. DELIVER.
It was a MIRACLE;
nothing less. As one of us said: "Now I'm sure there is a God."
Never have we experienced His spirit more concretely.
The exam we took was a
definite shrinker, an unexpected esteem-crusher that squeezed every bit of life out of us.
Sometimes you wonder why you studied in the first place. After the test our
spirits were so low. It kept sinking with every confirmed answer, for most of them
were different from ours. Just to make us feel better, we joked about how our
guardian angels would work overtime to change our answers... how they'd take a new answer
sheet because ours were so messed up. Magical, we know, like some innocent fairy
tale, but we believe it happened somehow. Because we all passed. Everyone,
including our Dumaguete companions, passed. So many garnered top places. To
think it was all our own doing is foolish. God works wonders. He granted us
more than we prayed for... proof of His unconditional love for us. That is why we
have to BELIEVE beyond doubt, beyond reason, that He is there, that He
listens, and that He answers our prayers. We know that ultimately it was our faith
in Him that made us deliver.
PLD wishes to thank
everyone for their unwavering support. Once we were really scared of expectations,
but now we know it's what pushed us to go that extra mile. The power of thought is
strong. AS YOU THINK, SO IT IS. As you believe, so it will
be. Many times our faith has been tested; many times we doubted ourselves, blamed
others, questioned God. Perhaps it's a normal reaction for anyone under pressure,
but with your help, dear reader, we had the strength to overcome everything that was
negative and worldly. Whether it was in form of prayer, a visit, an encouraging
text, a poster, a card or even just a positive thought, we thank you for your support.
In this light, we thank God for the humility to admit that WE DID NOT DO
THIS ALONE. Don't ever think your effort was too futile to contribute to
our success. For this and for everything else we are immensely grateful.
Through this experience, not only did we rediscover God, but also realize how blessed we
are with people who genuinely cared.
That's it! We
hurdled the final challenge of student life. Now it's time to step out of rehearsals
and do what we were trained to do. We can only pray that God crowns our efforts in
the same way He did in this beautiful and blissful experience.
