My Testimony

 

How does it feel to have everything right at your fingertips that even before you ask for anything it would already be laid ahead of you and just pick it up with easiness?

Although it seemed unanticipated and too late for him to change, Roland Lee decided to make new of his life as he has given himself up to one and only God, the one he has believed to have transformed him into a new creation.

A 18-year-old lad and is currently studying at Adamson University taking up Bachelor of Science in Geology.

He has four siblings and the fourth and only son of the family, thus, his father expected him to be a model of virtue and accomplish the things he wants for his only son that someday he will be a great one and likewise be better to what he had done and gone through in his life to be successive enough just to bestow his family a good living.

“For all of my life, I have done nothing but to indulge endlessly the easy-earned money coming from my parents, as they work hardly just to send me in a private school, instead I’ve been such a stubborn child and never thought of appraising those tough works,” said Roland.

Roland came from a known and influential family in Cauayan, Isabela. Both his parents were known of their social status. His mother was a businesswoman, while his father was a political adviser, thus, they got a very good living from it.

“Instead of focusing on my study and make my parents appreciate it, I engaged myself to a cluster of delinquent and troublesome juveniles, who also came from a rich family,” explained Roland.

“Our group always creates a trouble and mess in our town as we make fights with other youths there,” testified Roland.

“We also bully our pitiful fight less co-youths or classmates and as a matter of fact, we rest back and support each other if one of us wants to avenge to someone who has a great fault in him,” he further expound.

According to him, he was an obsolete youngster and a child when he was in high school that he was used not to follow what his parents always say to him. In every time her mother declines to give him money then he would just sneak the money out of her drawer when his opportunity comes.

He said that the money he stole is the one he will contribute to his friends in using to buy their small party-related gathering.

Moreover, aside from his party-wild attitude, he also engaged himself in wrong different relationships as if making a sudden change of his just new-worn clothes when he tends to crave for another brand new wardrobes as to satisfy his self.

Furthermore, he grinned and shared unexpectedly that he had had 39 girlfriends but only three of them he has taken and adored gravely. He also said while chuckling that they were all beautiful girls and daughters of some prominent politicians and rich families in their town.

Right after he graduated from high school in Isabela, he went to Manila to study in college, only then that it was out of the blue when his sister invited him to their church and something impulsive occurred to him.

Based on his experience, he said that it was just nothing to him at the first place, but as the time passes by, the presence of God slowly pierce deep within him, that upon his regular attendance in the Doulos for Christ Church he came to realize a lot of things that changed and integrated his whole life as a new creation.

Because of this, he then starts his life with new hope, courage and optimism that almost leads him to something unexpected and that his family and every related people around him make quest of it as they keep on saying: What and why on earth he seemed so different that he was almost not exactly who he was before. This seemed to his parent that he was surely not the person they have known previously, and that always makes them touched their hands on his forehead to check whether or not he has a fever, but to their surprise he’s not sick, and Roland knew it was kind of conspicuous that they were just teasing him.

Only then, everything has been cryptic to his family and to his former friends that he no sooner went with them and not making any troubles anymore that it has been in result a great relief to them every time he’s going to take a vacation in their province.

In great surprise of his elder sisters, he then spontaneously shows them a lot of unbelievable things on what it takes to be a good son and brother as he evidently study very hard and then getting high grades that likewise make his family appreciate it well enough.

Everything appeared to have been distinct from then on that his family has had no longer times to be used of this incredulous stuff about their son.

Besides, for almost one year and four months of being a Christian, he right away manifested that he will never leave what he has already invested in his life through God’s presence and aid.

Additionally, he then shared his favorite verse from the Bible which is 1 Timothy 4:12 and stated it: “Do not look down on you because you are young but set an example to the believers in speech, in love, in faith and in purity.”

According to him, he was inspired by this verse because it compels him to be able to influence and change the lives of other people regardless of his age and aptitudes.

“In being Christian is not enough, I need to disciple people, and be an example to them as a great leader and lead them to the path that the Lord design for them, and insert them into the vision of God in their minds so that this nation will transform through their lives,” Roland further supplemented.

All of these newly odds in his life has vindicated that his life is worth living for and that he can do something desperate to his co-fellows towards the purpose and the will of God for their lives.

Roland Lee then engaged his entire strength and supremacy of the Church and solemnly serves his God as his disciples and leads people to the path towards the Almighty God.
