God Blessed the Broken Road
Shalom. I’m Cristie Talamayan, from the Philippines. I am a mother of two and currently working here in Hong Kong as a domestic helper since 2017. Working away from the family is not easy, but I need to overcome trials through Christ, who always strengthens me for my kid’s future. Currently, I am taking online Bible school courses free at the Christian Leaders Institute (Learn more about online free Bible courses, Click Here).
At the end of 2020, I first encountered the Christian Leaders Institute when the covid pandemic hit. My employers asked me to stay home during the holidays. It was boring as I could not go out and the churches were closed. That’s when I realized that I wanted to get closer to God. I needed to renew my daily walk with Him. So, I decided to search for online Bible courses for free not just to have something to do while at home but to continue to learn and grow in God’s Word.
I grew up in a Christian community and used to go to church on Sunday. I involved myself in some church ministries and activities. So when I finished my high school studies, I decided to enter Bible school. But, life there was not easy. Maybe it was because I didn’t feel the calling, but I did have the passion for serving Him. So, I quit Bible school and experienced criticism. People around me didn’t expect me to fail, and I didn’t understand what I’d done. The burning fire inside me slowly dwindled. Then, I was in a situation far from God, which is not good in a Christian’s life. However, thankfully God will use and bless the broken road.
If we receive Jesus in our lives, surrender all to Him, and let Him direct us no matter what happens, we can cling to His promises. God helps us rise and walk with Him regardless of it’s hard. In the end, there is joy in our hearts if we know that we’re on the right path in Christianity. We especially need that nowadays when we don’t understand what is happening. Yes, this is when we need to be vigilant as Christians and help each other grow in God.
CLI is a tremendous opportunity for me because of its online Bible courses for free. In addition, the professors at CLI instruct and guide me in Christianity. May this ministry continue to reach people as God’s word is proclaimed to everyone! God blessed my broken road. He always makes a way for us in His perfect time. So don’t give up the faith! Thank you, CLI, and God bless this ministry for His glory alone!🙏.
