"Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new."
everyone i know knows my story, or at least what i thought was important.
if anyone was asked about me, here are the top answers/words they can relate me to: gay, vodka, food, party, laughter. sounds like a good list, huh? it may have, before. some of those words have to go.
it was only recently that i started to question the differences between personality and preference. i may have always interchanged them.
i can still have the same personality: funny, awesome (lol), cautious, supportive, etc. but my preference needs to change.
i have always said i am taking baby steps. in my trip to Baguio just last week, i finally made a pact with Him. i just need to wait when He lets it happen. i now believe in the power of choice.
i chose to quit partying, smoking and drinking. i can choose to change my preference too. not easy alone. but with God's grace, it might be a miracle i shall soon see.
i pray Father, that You continue to lead me to the path that You chose for me, the life that You designed for me. now that i have realized the lies of my past, let me live in Your truth and i need Your guidance and the support of my community, be it my family or the Church. i pray that You enlighten my other friends, the way You have enlightened me through others, that they may not see this as a trivial change but as a transformation of Your child who was lost for quite some time.
