I used to be one of the many people around-love gigs at night, hang around with friends in a common restaurant, do things an ordinary person do, get into a messy relationship, get myself better in appearance than I do now.
Today, I have lots of things changed-my outlook in life, how I look at things, my reactions, how I speak and how I treat others. I learned that the only God we have to venerate and worthy of praise and worship is Jesus Christ. I was glad, that it’s still not too late for me to know Him. I remember more than 10 years ago, a Christian woman was so persistent to invite me in a fellowship, who I always turned down. It looks so “baduy”-the popular word for being some kind of conservative or not in congruent to the current society- to join such kind of group. I loved to go on discos and bars. I drink a lot with my friends. BTW, I’m a good dancer and sings well. Tarot reading, fascinated me and it catches my eyes to study everything about the stars in heaven instead of our God in heaven. I learned little by little reading the tarot, ordinary cards, palm reading, numerology, and dreams interpretation as well. I joined lots of common groups on the internet reading tarots for others and vice versa. It was a different experience learning those kind of mystical stuff. I know God hated these, but instead it was my passion. Anyway, I don’t know God yet that time. However, I go to church every Sundays and every special occasion , such as town fiesta, Christmas, new year, confession, baptism, wedding , and of course, I cannot pass my birthday without visiting our parish or go to a parish where I can have my novena. But, that was long time ago.
