I turned my radio on last Tuesday and realized Sharathon has started and I felt this ardent desire to volunteer.  So after a late volunteer registration with a follow-up e-mail to Steven, Volunteer Coordinator,  it would be by God’s grace that I would be accepted. A few hours later, voila, I received an acceptance e-mail back and I’m a Sharathon volunteer for the first time ever this year (although it has been my desire for many years past)!

Wednesday morning came and I started having shoulder pain. I told the devil that if this his way of stopping me, to forget it as I strongly intend to go even with the possibility of bad weather brewing.. Pain patch in the morning while getting ready to go; a silent prayer to the Holy Spirit for me to remember what we were told during midday phone volunteer training and not to be overwhelmed; an Advil in the early afternoon and I got through my shift happy and tired by the time I got home. I slept well without waking up in the middle of that night. 

Just before Prayathon volunteer duty started Wednesday mid-morning, my shoulder pain started aching and I twice thought of taking Advil but didn’t. I was at first intimidated by how the Prayathon was going to be done, each one leading a prayer, as it was my first time in this kind of event but I just left it in the hands of the Holy Spirit.  We prayed intensely for several hours for all the listed intentions and I was able to raise my arms up to God several times. I was exhausted after the session and had to sit for a while in the lobby before driving my almost hour-long drive back home. Later cooked, washed dishes and several heavy pots/pans from yesterday and today. It is now 10:10 pm and I do not have any shoulder pain. Thank you JESUS and HOLY SPIRIT that my pain went away and for not having any anxiety attack and for confirming to me I am employable!!  You see, I haven’t worked in the past 10 months due to anxiety, short term memory issues, being easily distracted, multiple joint, muscle problems, fear and uncertainty. Meanwhile, I have grown to know Jesus more during that time and the verse: “You will know the Truth and the Truth will set you free” and the verse,  ‘I am the Way, the Truth and the Life’’ now hold such deeper meanings. 

Thank you DEAR GOD for KSBJ and all the wonderful and supportive people, staff and volunteers, I met these past 2 days smile Thank you guardian angel for doing such a great job watching over me and keeping me safe. In everything, to GOD BE THE GLORY!!!
