When I wake up in the morning each day, I think through my day and wonder what will happen today. But, I never wonder if God will be with me during that day. I know that He will always be with me. It is not because I am so perfect or nice. It is because I have asked Jesus to take control of my life.
When I was just eight years old, I laid awake one night thinking about what an older man had told me that day about God. That night, I prayed and asked Jesus to forgive me and take control of my life. At eight years old, I had very little understanding of what that would mean. But now I know that decision was the biggest decision of my life.
Knowing Jesus means that I have a purpose and direction in my life. When I pray, I know God is listening. When I need help in relationships with people or making big decisions, God is the one who helps me. Most important to me, God has forgiven me of all the stupid things in my past that I am not proud of. Jesus is the one who gives me a fresh start in life and purpose in my days. I pray that you will make the decision to follow Jesus as well.
