Story of my Faith
When I was a child, my faith was as big as an elephant! When I was young… I thought that God can make miracles when you prayed. I was right, what I didn’t expect was that God will have the right time to give you what you want, or other plans for you. When I was about 9, my faith slowly got bigger and bigger. As troubles came, and I can’t do anything to fix it, I just pray, sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn’t. what I did learn is God isn’t the only way to solve problems, you have to do a part too, most Cled teachers give this example: A boy doesn’t study for the test, the next day he prayed to God that he wants to pass the test, after the test was checked, he failed, some people thought that God won’t give you what you want or doesn’t hear your prayers. . This example gives so much meaning to me. For example: a student did a bad thing, he got in trouble… and prayed, he got suspended and blamed God for why he got in trouble. In this example, the child prayed to God, not thinking that he was the one who made the choice to do a bad thing. This also applies for me: in the two examples, they only prayed AFTER got in trouble, not before. You see, what I noticed is that “ some people only pray when they’re in trouble”. I didn’t say it was bad, in fact people may pray more if they tried to change… perhaps, a experience, can change your habit of NOT praying, self-discipline also applies in this situations. Now, my faith is still big and now, I can also understand the Bible clearly. My parents told me stories about the characters from the Bible that helped my faith grow.
