“I’ve been Christian for twenty years already but … hindi masyado. Kung baga parang nakatanggap lang [kay Jesus Christ] pero hindi ko talaga pinamuhay yung isang Christlike na life until naka-attend po ako ng True Life Retreat nung April 2019… just recently lang. Parang yun yung turning point ko po.
Tapos sabi ko, ‘Lord, I pray na makahanap po ako ng support group na maiiintindihan kung papaano ako magiging godly wife.’ Kasi sa totoo lang, being a wife is not really easy. Ang hirap po kahit na Christians na tayo. Sobrang dami nating pagdadaanan every day. Ang hirap nya—- disappointments, tapos hindi mo alam kung ano’ng gagawin mo… how to be humble, how to submit. Sabi ko, ‘[Lord,] please help me na magkaroon ng support group’… hanggang nakita ko po yung launching ng book ni Sister Merlyn [My Husband’s Mistress Is Me].
Sabi ko, ‘Uy, maganda ‘to. Tapos nalaman ko na ‘Organized by Praying Wife Forum.’
May ganito pala! Sabi ko, ‘may ganito pala!’ I’ve been praying for this for so long kasi ito po yung group na makakatulong talaga sa atin na derechong sambot yung need natin as a wife kasi meron po tayong mga D-groups and siempre yung topics doon about family and everything. Pero ito po kasi talagang sambot yung need ng isang wife.
Sabi ko, ‘Lord, thank You na ilang weeks pa lang ako nag-attend dito pero sobrang life-changing po talaga yung group na ‘to. Ang dami kong natutunan specifically how to be submissive talaga kay Husband.’”
All glory, honor, and praise to Jesus Christ for His ministry to wives! His word has the power to transform our hearts and lives!
Dear Jesus, thank You for this milestone that You allow us to see You working in Tetel’s life as she seeks You through this bible study support group, as she comes to listen to Your Word and applies it to her life. Please continue to mould each of us to be more like You for Your glory alone amen.
