NANINIWALA si Miss Universe 2015 Pia Alonzo Wurtzbach na malaki ang nagagawa ng pagdarasal sa kapalaran ng isang tao.
Sa Instagram posts ni Pia noong nakaraang Nov. 7, makikita ang dalawang photos kung saan nagdarasal at nagpapasalamat siya para sa mga biyaya na bigay sa kanya ng Panginoon.
Ang unang photo ay kinunang noong 2014 noong una siyang matalo sa Bb. Pilipinas.
‘Yung pangalawa ay noong ipapasa na niya ang kanyang korona bilang Bb. Pilipinas-Universe sa bagong winner nitong 2016.
“1st photo was taken coronation night of Bb. Pilipinas 2014 (before the announcement of winners) where I lost. And 2nd photo was Bb. Pilipinas 2016 coronation night where I was about to pass on my Miss Philippines crown (which was dearly precious to me because of the long journey to get it) while wearing THE Miss Universe crown.
“This cross is located backstage of the Smart Araneta Coliseum where the national pageant is always held. I remember holding on to it filled with joy and overwhelming gratitude before I flew to Vegas to compete for the Miss Universe title.
“The reason why I’m posting this is to remind everyone that sometimes we forget to simply say thank you. Too often we pray when we’re in the dark but do we also pray to say thank you when we’re okay?
“Don’t forget to say thank you. I’m a big fan of the ‘Jesus Calling’ book given to me as a gift by my best friend Pauleen Luna. Today I came across this message from the same author of that book:
“This life I have given you may not always be easy. But I’ll make sure you have everything you need to live it fully. I’ll even help you find Joy and Happiness in it!
“Being content won’t just happen. You have to choose it. You have to look for Me.
“This doesn’t mean you can’t hope for a better future. Contentment simply means trusting My plan for you — even if you don’t always understand it.” – Jesus.
“So guys, don’t lose hope. He has a plan for you. You just have to have faith in yourself and in Him. And together you will find your destiny. Just like I did. I’m still a work in progress but I’ll never forget the true power He holds and will always hold. To my first and true love. You.” (Ruel J. Mendoza)
