BS ENTREP 1-C
T he greatest growth in my life happened when I become a
Christian, when I accepted Jesus Christ as my saviour, my king,
my redeemer, and my God.
Since that day, I felt my
self growing up day by
day. I have learned how to
discipline myself, how to
be a good influence to
others, and how to live my
life with purpose. I avoid
everything that will not
help me grow as an
individual, I avoided all my
bad habits in my past life.
Besides, I choose to get to
know God, deeply, I let God
to control my life, and He
guides me along the right.

mentally and spiritually, knowledge of our Lord and
its also help me to grow my Saviour Jesus Christ."

live in the power of Holy
Spirit. God communicate with me through bible, revealing His
character and His will. I communicate with God through
prayer, sharing my need and desire to do His will.
Major blocks in my growth
T he major blocks in my growth is my insecurities.
I've felt insecure about my looks, my intelligence, certain skills
that I wish I am better at, or the direction of my life going.
No one is a stranger to insecu-
rities, some are just better at
dealing with them, or perhaps
hiding them. Insecurities develop
when we compare ourselves
to others and feel less than.
They occur when we experience
a consequences for being
different from others in a
perceived negative way or when
we feel we do not measure up
to where we should be. But as
I grow and encounter different
kind of people. I've learned how
to overcome my insecurities,
I've learned how to build my
self-esteem, and I've learned
how to be contented of what God
gave to me. Just seek God out His

whatever circumstances I am in." contenment in Him.
T here are so many amazing gifts I received from God.
But the greatest gift I've received from God is my salvation.
Bible teaches me that salvation is an undeserved gift that is
received when you place your faith and truth in Jesus Christ,
The moment I genuinely
trust God to save me, I
justified. Many people
claim you can go to heaven
when you believe and do
good deeds or good works
to help in the process. This
is not the message Jesus
offers. While those who
follow Jesus will seek to
live according to His ways,
salvation is not based on
anything we do , but it is
accepted by faith alone
based on God's grace.
Based on the bible, the "For by Grace you have been

Source of Strength
M y strong relationship with God gives me enough
strength that I can use to face every challenges in life with
hope and determination. By engaging in spiritual exercises like
praying, reading the Bible, and living in God presence helps me
strikes into special power
that only God can provide.
When I believe and trust
what I read in the Bible
and in how God works,
my hope strengthened.
My life verse is also
talking about strength, it

and my shield; my heart
trusted Him, and I am
helped." this verse can be

verse expressing his
helpless condition; his
bitterness of heart and the
pain that seems to be

Source of Inspiration
E veryone of us have a source of inspiration in our life.

inspiration to many. If everyone has a source of inspiration for
their idols, but not for me. " As a mother comforts her child,
As for me, my source of so will I comfort you."
inspiration is none other than
my mother. She has inspired
me since I was a little boy.
She taught me to always
treat others as I would want
to be treated, to help for
those who need it, and to stay
strong in the face of
adversity. I carry these
lessons everywhere I go and
remember them when I am
faced with a new challenge
and opportunity. I would like
to thank God for giving her in
my life. No amount of money
I can repay for all the
kindness and love that she
had given me. My mother is

What keeps me going in life?
I have a lot of motivations that keep me going in life. But the
main reason why I keeps on going in life is because I have so many
dreams and goal in life that I want to achieve. I want to finish my
study and get a job, in that way I can able to payback my mother's
hardships. In addition, also want prove to those people who judged
and under estimate me, that I can reach my dream. I trust God
plans for my life, I know that His plans for my life are way better
than mind. Trusting God plans is a must.
" You can make many plans, but the Lord's
purpose will prevail."
Seek his will
in all you do, and he will
show to you which path to take.
