What have you learned this month?
- My highschool friend told me a couple of stories that made me realized how much I need to spend more time with God. How much I've lost contact and how much I felt disconnected from God for more than 3 years now. It was all my fault. I've been harboring something in my heart that I wasn't supposed to be doing - unforgiveness. I said I was so sorry and I pray that God will lead me to HIM again and again. I always pray that He will ALWAYS lead me to the right path, to the path where I'm supposed to be.

- Being a Christian is not easy. Being of service to God is not even easier. But if we focus our eyes and our hearts to God and Jesus, everything will fall into place. It is HIM who knows the way. It is HIM who visualizes the whole picture. We are His servants and what we only do is ask HIM to lead us, no matter what.

- There are battles in our lives that are no longer our battle. Only God can fight those kind of battles for us. HIM and only HIM.
