Everything Starts From a Prayer

Maybe some of you are wondering why we need to trust God first for us to be happy. I started trusting God when I was a teenager and now I am 28 years old and a certified happy person, I now understand why it is important to trust Him first before anything else. I cannot explain directly how and why but I can share some of my experiences.

I grew up with my grandparents. I have 4 sisters and a brother (mother side) and I  am the second child. My eldest sister has a different father. Mine as well is different from my other siblings' dad. Sounds complicated, right? Anyone who hears that short family background of mine will surely ask how and why did it happen. Some will judge my mother but I know that you, the one reading this, has an open mind with a good heart and you will never think the same way.

My mom is my hero. She worked in Japan and Korea for so many years to give us a comfortable life and good education. My grandmother took care of me and I am very proud to have her as well. Both of them taught me to pray all the time. My eldest sister used to remind me as well to pray always. When I was a kid, I didn't understand how important it is to pray. And honestly, I can't remember how I started praying without them reminding me.

So I guess that's the key, KEEP REMINDING OTHERS TO PRAY. I have huge faith in God right at this moment and I really do pray a lot. It is very easy to remind others. The easiest way? When you see someone, like your kids, friends or even your colleagues having a hard time or even just a simple problem, don't hesitate to tell them to pray. 

When you friend is crying because of problems at work, even financial problems or love life, just simply say, "Hey, don't cry. It will make you ugly. PRAY! No harm in trying. Talk to God. Tell Him what made you cry. You can stay in you bedroom or even in the comfort room (don't forget to smile or even laugh while instructing her. Remember, drop the seriousness.) If  you don't want others to see you crying, lock yourself, cry while talking to God. You can talk to Him using your heart and mind, He will hear you. If you don't trust Him yet, trust me as your friend. Follow my advise and you will surely feel good. I mean really really good. And I am assuring you, after that, you will start trusting Him like I do."

I had so many bad memories when I was a child and I am proud to say that I am not dwelling on that anymore. I am now happy because I trusted Him all the way and will trust Him for the rest of my life. I love God and it will stay that way forever. Amen? Amen.
