“This year I was really excited about a singing competition my school was having. I love singing and it was the perfect opportunity, but my teacher gave me the wrong date for the competition.
“By the time I realized the mistake, the competition was already over. I went to the bathroom and cried for a while; then I felt like I should pray. I prayed with all my heart, and I had a lot of peace. I felt the impression that I should stay calm. I trusted God and left the bathroom, and for some reason I knew that everything would be fine.
“The next day, the teacher in charge of the contest told me they had set one more date for the contest: Friday! I felt very happy, and I knew at that moment that the Lord really works miracles if we put our trust in Him.
“I think trusting in the Lord means putting all your heart, soul, mind, and strength in Him. By doing that, I have been able to have confidence in myself and to have the Holy Spirit more often.”
