My Strong Faith in God

The sun as it sets against the backdrop of the wide sea, one of God's gift to mankind and a proof of His magnificence! How can we not feel Him?

The sun as it sets against the backdrop of the wide sea, one of God’s gifts to mankind and a proof of His magnificence! How can we not feel Him?

“As I have been openly espousing in majority of my posts, my faith in God is the strongest in me. And I feel strongly our bond, something which has made me conclude that all my actions were/are guided by Him. I always feel Him prodding me and for this reason that I have always been spontaneous in all my talks and actions. As I feel the push, I act on it immediately.

“But, of course, I understand, that most people won’t believe me, but it doesn’t bother me because I live, talk and act, according to God’s plans and it has always been between Him and me!

“We only answer to God and no one else, for that matter!”


NOTE: Stumbled upon the above from an old Status Post of mine on Facebook. A very brief read but very meaty.

About Author

Freda Editha O. Contreras
Writing is a God-given talent which I try to utilize the good way. I used it as a means to earn a living, my very first job after graduating from college, when I got hired as an Information Writer by the Provincial Government of Antique through Governor Enrique A. Zaldivar in January 1982. By profession, I am a Registered Nurse, and was only able to practice it when I got recruited to work in a private hospital in Kuwait. This was in November 1987 and since then I have been living in Kuwait, now retired since June 2002. Because of my knack in writing I got hired in 1994 to write for Kuwait Times and later became an Editor of 'Pinoy News' a weekly supplement of KT. In March 1996 I published the very first independent Filipino newspaper in Kuwait and the Gulf bannered as Pinoy Expat News or PEN. The paper lasted for only 10 weekly issues. This was followed by another publication and came out first as an insert of an ad paper and later as a separate tabloid. I used then 'Pinoy News' as it was my idea the first time it was used for Kuwait Times. This again failed and produced only three weekly issues. I then turned to the Internet and in 1999 I got hired as a Contributing Editor of, a writers' portal on the web. The last of my articles was published December 31, 2002 but my topic 'Overseas Filipino Workers' was still visible until January 2006. All the 38 articles I wrote have been compiled into a book which I published in August 2007. I discovered blogging in 2006 but was not really serious about my writing. I wrote according to my whim. Having this blog under my own domain name is now a welcome development and I plan to concentrate again in writing. As is commonly said: "A writer will always be a writer."
