the story of my second conversion

by Mari Roxette
(Manila, philippines)

I used to be a fanatic of horoscopes, talismans, spells and witchcraft. I was eager to learn dark magics and become a witch.

But during high school I was unhappy and alone. I became the most miserable creature of those times. Suddenly a concerned classmate introduced me to St. Therese the little flower. She said that St. Therese is a miraculous saint and there was no harm in asking anything frm the saint.

So I immediately printed a novena prayer and prayed for nine days. I prayed for my petition. But I was still unhappy. I asked another favor frm the saint and she also answered my prayer. But the gloomy state of my soul did not diminish. I have no friends. Still unsatisfied.

Then I suddenly saw myself calling to Jesus. talking to Him and pouring out my heart. I also pray novena to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and He gave it all . I experienced sudden love.

But i did not remain in such grace. I dont pray everyday and dont go to church frequently. In short , i was lost again. I came to the point that I was involved in deeper sin.

Whenever I saw the chapel's door I refused to go inside, thinking this thought.." I cant show myself to Him coz my sin is great. I am not worthy to enter this place anymore." During that time I was not aware that this was the devil's trick.

After two years
of being a prodigal son, that was after I finished the third year in college, a thought came to me. I will become a fourth year student!! Until now I dont have any plans for my life. Goals nor dreams. I am afraid for graduation!! I doubt if there is any job available for a stupid one like me.

I cut out a Divine Mercy picture and hung it . Then I talked to this image as if I was talking to a friend.

I told Jesus all my sorrows, my problems and concerns. I even cried a lot. After a minute of conversation.. I heard an interior voice within me. The voice said....JUST TRUST ME... I was greatly suprised. For the first time in my life I heard a response.

I thought this was the last interior voice but He spoke again during another heart to heart talk. I said to Him... " Jesus, whenever i pray the rosary and my mom comes in.. I stop praying and pretend doing something else. She does not want to see me praying. For her , praying is wasting my time. then a voice replied.." whoever denies me here.. I will deny in My Father".. I trembled in fear and became silent. Then I remember that there is a passage in the Bible that is the same on what I heard.

I had so many unexplained stories that I experienced from Him. I hope my experience will help struggling souls.

Hi anonymous! Thank you very much for the comment.! I am happy to read your comment. *smiles*

I remember the story of St. Faustina. She hears interior voice but because she doesn't have a SPIRITUAL DIRECTOR, she does not know what to do. Then FATHER SOPOCKO and FATHER ANDRASZ came.. Since that day, her diary came out. And she shares her story with unseen graces for all souls .

As a spiritual babies, we need the mature in spirit to guide us. I believe that JESUS will ask something that requires your YES to His will.Jesus has a work for everyone.. you and me.. and everyone.. lets help each other in prayer.

Your story is indeed amazing! I could relate on what you wrote here. Many times I experienced that God was talking to me/giving me some messages. Others would say that it's a gift from God. I only understand God's message when I spoke to a Priest because I don't know what's happening to me.

God Be with you always...
