It seems my brother has always been a role model for me. Growing up he was very athletic and pretty smart too. Everyone expected me to do everything he did and to do it as well as he did, that just never happened. I felt a huge amount of pressure. Was there anyone that could help me?
As a young person in the church youth group, I began to notice that many of my friends had something in their lives that I didn’t have. After class one Sunday I asked my teacher some questions about what was different between my friends and me. He told me about Jesus and how He was the only One who could forever help me.
With Jesus as my role model, my life is so full of joy. Every day is an exciting adventure. Jesus set me free from the pressures and expectations that I had allowed others to place on me. The day I talked with my teacher was the day I knew God loved me because of the cross and it has forever changed my life.
