I really believe in the saying, “Moms know best”. Whenever I seek advice from my nanay, it is always the best advice. It puts me on the right track. It gives best results.
The 30th anniversary celebration of CFC-FFL was the best day of my life. Kuya EJ [Aguila, a fulltime worker] was talking about our calling in our community. Be it priesthood, marriage, single blessedness, etc. Then he told us to embrace our family, my sisters embraced tatay and I embraced nanay. I closed my eyes and I immediately began to cry. I maybe felt the comfort I needed from the problems I have been facing these past few weeks. But that wasn’t the sole reason. We all began to sing “Blessed”. The song was perfect for that moment. I really felt the song. While singing, I talked to God. I told Him, “Lord, Ikaw na po bahala sa akin. Kung ano po yung nararapat para sa akin, tatanggapin ko po. Kung ano po yung plano Mo para sa akin, let Your will be done.” Then I felt that nanay embraced me tighter. After that, I had a vision. I saw a silhouette of a family. I knew that God was talking to me. After a few seconds, while still singing the song, I had a vision once again, but this time it is a vision of my family right beside me. My future family. My future wife and kids. Tears fell harder on my face. I continued singing the song, TODO BIGAY! After the song, I answered God, “Lord, maraming salamat po”.
I joined this community last 2006. As a teenager, I was still confused on what future am I going to have. We all have our own ambitions and dreams. But it is really God who knows what is best for us. Sometimes, we might not like it. We just have to trust in Him and be faithful to him.
Our God used my nanay to tell me what is in store for me in the future. After all, moms know best.
Happy 30th anniversary CFC-FFL!
I am blessed to be a part of this community!
