On 1st and 2nd May, 31 graduating students attended a 2 days retreat to wrap up their tertiary journey before embarking on a new phase in life. Read on for some thanksgiving.
ENTERING A NEW PHASE WITH JESUS
“Before coming for the retreat, I was struggling with feelings of doubt about the future and whether my relationship with God would falter as I entered a new phase of my life. Although I am uncertain of where I will be in life, one thing I am truly certain of after attending this retreat is God’s never ending love for me. He is a patient and loving God, who is guiding me through life and I just need to put all my trust in him.” – Stacey Djuana [Republic Polytechnic]
GOD IS BIGGER THAN MY MESS!
“I went into the retreat slightly unsure about what I was doing, in a messy state of mind and very distracted and burdened by the different responsibilities, worries and things I was putting my energy into. However, during the retreat and in my own prayer, I was very affirmed by the knowledge and truth revealed to me that the Lord understood all that I was feeling, and has been with me in the midst of all this chaos, carrying me on his back. He desires for me to give Him the key to my heart which I had taken away from Him. Leaving the retreat, I have a renewed love for God and a greater desire to give him authority over and lead me in all the aspects of my life that I previously tried to carry and shoulder on my own.” – Anne-Marie Ramachandran [Temasek Polytechnic]
