The life change that God has done in me

Since the end of 2013
after I got my bachelor degree, I had a plan to pursue a master
degree in France. At first, I wanted to finish all the process of
enrollment before telling it to the pastor and his wife, because I
was afraid that they would forbid me to go. I thought, if I had
finished everything, they would have not been able to forbid me to
go. God reminded me that if I really considered the pastor and his
wife as my spiritual parents, I would surely tell my plan to them,
not hide it. Even if they had forbidden me to go, it would have been
because of a spiritual consideration, and it would have been for my
At the Old and New Service last year, I told the
pastor and his wife about my plan, and he asked me to pray, because
it was the year of jubilee. I said amen to that.
In the year
of jubilee, I felt God's work that changed me.
God released me from being proud.
When I prepared my enrollment to a campus in France, I relied on
myself. I applied for a scholarship, but I sent the wrong documents
even though I had already checked it thoroughly.
grades that I was proud of were not sent,
so I did not get the scholarship. The other time, I searched for
other scholarship, I paid attention to the deadline, but I
God rebuked me about my pride. I begged for God's mercy
because I relied on myself. I
started to follow God's will.
God brought me to be more diligent in prayer. Every time I listened
to God's word, I felt like He always pointed at my pride until I was
really able to get free from it.
- God taught me
to let go all worries.
It was June, and I still did not get any scholarship, while my
courses would start on September. It was impossible to find a
scholarship in less than 3 months. However, I received God's word
several times, saying "Do
surrendered everything to God. Whether God let me go or not, may it
glorify His name only.
I did not lose
my hope, but I surrendered all. I believed that God would provide
me with the best thing.
was an announcement about an additional time to apply for the
which normally would be held on September. I felt that God had
opened a way miraculously. It should not be possible, but God
could do everything beyond man's reason.
- God also
taught me to be obedient,
although it seemed that it did not make sense. At the beginning of
2014, my bachelor thesis' supervisor invited me to present my
bachelor thesis in a conference in Thailand on June. I told my
mother about this plan, but she did not allow me to go because she
did not feel in peace
since I would go only with my female supervisor.
At that time, I
felt that my mother worried too much, but
I obeyed her anyway. It turned out that my
interview for the scholarship was held at the same day of my
departure to Thailand.
If I had decided to go to Thailand, I would have lost my last chance
to get a scholarship.
- After I came here,
I felt that the courses were very difficult and very different from
what I had learnt in Indonesia. God always brought me to pray.
This time, God emphasized about being thankful.
God told me several times through His word to be thankful in every
condition. I gave
thanks to God that He let me free from many sins this year.
I believed that in the next year, God will do much more in me until
someday I will be able to welcome His second coming.
God blesses us.
