I grew up in an average home. I had all I needed but something was wrong. I wasn’t happy, I was searching and lonely. I wanted to be accepted; I was confused about life and its meaning. I sought happiness in drugs and loose living.
At age 18 I started attending church with a friend. There I heard truth I had never heard before. I heard and saw what the Bible said that I had a problem; that problem was called sin. That is why I was searching, lonely & confused. The good news was God had made a way for me to be forgiven, accepted & changed-all by the death, burial & resurrection of Jesus from the dead! I asked for forgiveness & surrendered my life to Jesus.
Since I surrendered to Jesus my life has been different. I no longer wonder what life is all about. I no longer look for satisfaction in a bottle or in a lifestyle but have rather found all I ever needed in Jesus. I still have struggles but I have ONE to help me along the way. I am forgiven, accepted, freed from my guilt & shame. I am not just God’s creation because now in Jesus I am made God’s child-I have been adopted into His family! Won’t you join me?
