My Most Defining Moment

This was an essay included in my Take Home Exam. I don't really have the idea why, no relevance at all. Oh well, we were tasked to choose between these options - My Most Embarrassing Moment, The Day I Hated Myself, and My Most Defining Moment. Obviously, i chose the latter. Whatever! =p

When I was still in college, earning my degree, I had this intuition and fear about the future. I was afraid to end up unemployed and be a burden instead of support to my parents. I was a CAP scholar – a privilege I had through the sweats of my parents. My dad died when I was still 9 years old, and I grew up with my mom alone. To give back my gratitude to my mom (in behalf of my dad) for the good things they’ve done to me, I make it sure to top in my course. I hit the second honor spot several times, and I received 50% tuition fee reimbursement and refund. A little as it was before yet it felt so good every time I gave the reward to my mom.

God is so good to me. He blessed me so much. When I graduated, I got busy with the yearbook. I’ve spent (together with the other staffs) 2 whole months to finish it. So basically, I wasn’t able to apply for job during. However, God is faithful because several companies (I applied during the Job’s Fair at school) contacted me for an interview. It’s so amazing, that I didn’t have to fall in a very long line at jobs fair anymore. God is so gracious. I met and accepted the best job offered to me then start working in June.

I’ve been living independently since College. I lived in a dorm for four years and moved out to rent a house. My mom wishes for me to graduate, have a job, be stable, live life accordingly and I did not fail her. The joy for my mom and for me is what defines me today. Achieving those things we wished for in the past were the moments that define me most.

You told Your close followers
who were taught how to seek the Father's heart
that whatever they asked for in prayer,
that they were to believe they received it
and it would be theirs. (Mark 11:24)

O, Father, help me to know Your heart intimately
so that I'll know how to pray,
what to pray,
and believe in advance
that I will receive it!
