When Cecille Marasigan prayed for God’s comfort, she received it and more.
She experienced God’s faithfulness when she flew to Saudi Arabia and served as a nurse for 17 long years. Through that noble job, Cecille was able to provide a comfortable life for her children and allowed her to support her parents in the Philippines.
However, in 2014, she had to let go of her growing career to take care of her beloved father who suffered from a stroke.
Like Cecille, have you ever had to choose between career and family? If so, then you can relate to her story.
“I was taking care of other patients, but I was not able to do it for my own father. So, I had to go home to take care of him,” Cecille recalled. She and her 3 children flew back to the country while her husband remained in Jeddah to support the family.
They were trying to make ends meet, but they have scraped out what was left of their savings when their children got sick. Their son suffered severe asthma while their daughter was brought to the hospital due to stomach problems.
“It was the most challenging season of my life. We came to a point when we only have Php 3,000 in our wallets,” she narrated. That moment, she was left torn and wondering how they would stretch their resources for the medical expenses of her ailing father and children.
Where do you find comfort during times of trouble?
Cecille found comfort in the arms of her loving God.
During one of her sleepless nights, she chanced upon The 700 Club Asia and was blessed by how God used the ministry in reaching out to people in need.
Cecille realized that God has comforted and sustained them against all odds. With the limited resources that she had, she trusted God’s, unlimited love.
She prayed and immediately took out Php 1,000 from their remaining budget and donated to CBN Asia, “I learned that as you give, you glorify God. Gratefulness overflowed in my heart.”
Although she was not expecting anything in return, a mighty rain of blessings started to pour into their lives.
God healed Cecille’s loved ones and opened a business opportunity for their family. He also blessed them with a product center of herbal supplements and a health and wellness clinic. Her husband already went home because they even surpassed their earnings while they were working abroad!
Having experienced God’s comforting love, Cecille can reflect that comfort to the people around her. And as she continues to give, lead, and care for her neighbors’ well-being, she also learns that God’s love is indescribable because it has no limits.
“It’s a joy for me to help. God’s mathematical equation when it comes to giving is multiplication. The more we give, all the more will He course His blessings through us,” Cecille ended.
Are you struggling to believe that God can comfort you?
Whenever you feel that way, you can always come back to this truth: His comforting, saving love came down to reconcile you with the Heavenly Father, so you can experience the fullness of His grace. And through trials, God’s compassion for you will always remain.
No love compares to that.
“‘Though the mountains be shaken and the hills be removed, yet my unfailing love for you will not be shaken nor my covenant of peace be removed,’ says the Lord, who has compassion on you.” (Isaiah 54:10 NIV)
