Hello, everyone! I’m Dora. I'm glad to be here and share with you my dearest God. If any of you asks me what kind of God I believe in, I’d like to say that God is almighty, that God is grace and that God is love and my Father in heaven.

Literally, I was brought up in church, so I was familiar with most of the stories in the Bible. However, even though I went to church regularly every week, read the Bible every day, and prayed before every meal, I had not actually believed in the Lord Jesus in spirit or in truth. As a perfectionist, I tried very hard to make everything perfect on my own. I never truly experienced God’s almighty power in person until I went on a mission trip to Lugu Township. In the mountains in the middle of Taiwan, at my age of ten, I was seriously bitten by mosquitoes. My legs were covered with numerous mosquito bites, swollen and itchy, and they made me too uncomfortable to fall asleep at night. At that time, a senior member of my church came to me, asking if she could pray for me. It was an alarming warning to me because I almost forgot that I could also pray to God. Something miraculous happened just after we had prayed. I not only fell asleep at once but also slept all the way till dawn without any interruption. From that time on, I would love to say, ” Jesus is Lord,” from the bottom of my heart. I knew that God is full of grace. He didn’t despise me for how little faith I had. He just promised,” Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you.” From that time on, I realized that “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible. ” I have learned not to be anxious about anything or burden myself with all my cares, but in everything, through prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, I can boldly present my requests to God.

With the growth of my age, my faith in God and my spiritual life have gradually been built. Every trouble that I had gone through makes me believe in God more affirmatively. At church, all the brothers and sisters are just like my families, and God is my father in heaven. I can learn to follow the elders' footsteps, conform to the likeness of Jesus and also make my footsteps followed by the younger ones. I can try to use the gifts I have received to serve both God and others. Even though I still fail or fall down from time to time, God’s grace always helps me stand up again. I can enjoy God’s love company, and also love others and keep their company. At home, God’s love complements the deficiency of my family. His love fills my heart which is in lack of the love of my earthly father, and God's love is above anyone else's. At school, He holds my hand to go through every test, and every choice as well as every barrier big or small. Although sometimes I don’t understand why a bad thing would happen to me, I still believe that God’s ways are higher than my ways and that God’s thoughts are higher than my thoughts.

As you can see, all the changes are so important to my growth. A lot of little things help me feel that my God is the true and living God. Now, I also tell this good news to you. You can also attain God’s salvation, joy, and love as long as you are willing to believe in Him. Thank you!
