Before I met Jesus Christ, I was a very good person…
You could say I was successful, but I knew there was still something missing.
I can’t tell you why they went but I knew that I had sinned and that I was not going to Heaven because of it!
I felt like I needed to control every situation and was miserable if I couldn’t.
I came to the realization that having Godly parents and going to church all the time were not enough to get me into Heaven.
As a kid I had a regular nightmare where there was a canyon filled with fire and I was on one side and my family was on the other.
I thank God he loves us and doesn’t leave us even when we have mediocre commitments…
The fear of death gripped me every day because I didn’t understand my purpose in life and I was fearful of the future.
The pastor wisely asked if…I had assurance of where I would go when I died.
I could never find peace as a teenager. I knew there must be something more.
