Behind every #zaikia is a zai God. Do you know this God?

Celina (SIT) shares her story:

"Throughout my secondary school days, I tried to pursue zainess in terms of popularity & somehow feeling superior and having people 'look up to me' made me feel good. I remembered being the infamous clique of 3 girls in secondary school where the entire general office will know of our existence. Juniors will not even dare to step foot into the toilet when they see us upon opening the door. I basically did all the things which are supposedly cool such as smoking, playing truancy, stealing, using vulgarities as if they were the only words in my vocabulary, picking fights with the teachers and the list continues. I thought all these could bring me more friends and favour but no. I realised that behind this 'tough' me, I was actually insecure, lonely and purposeless.
.
As a typical 'ahlian', I was slacking at a playground after school with a friend when a few seniors came over to ask if we wanted to join them for games & also handed us an invite for the subsequent service. I went, and I still remembered me laughing when people were jumping and lifting their hands during P&W. That day I responded to receive God in my life because I wanted more friends (seniors especially so I can have back up hahaha) I think what made me stay is the sincerity of the people and how they accepted the very extremely flawed me. They were also very patient with me despite me being very dao, stubborn and hard to handle 99% of the time. Through their lives, I see a glimpse of the God they worship and it definitely stirred something in my heart.
.
7 years into knowing Jesus and I gotta admit this is still the best decision I can ever make. I am now secured of my identity in Christ and knowing that He was relentless in His pursuit of me, my only response is to give my life and make it count for Him."
