I was 9 yrs. old and my parents took me to church about every Sunday. I loved Sunday School and going to church. But I new I needed more than just attending church. Even as a young boy, God was speaking to me about my relationship with Him. I new I wanted to follow Jesus. And I wanted to Go to heaven when I died.
I can’t say I understood everything about following Jesus because I didn’t. But I did know I was a sinner and if I would pray to God, ask Him to forgive me of my sins, come into my heart and be Lord of my life I would have that relationship I was needing. That void I had, would be filled. One Sunday morning my teacher read John 3:16. After he read the scripture He asked if anyone wanted to pray and ask Jesus to come into their heart. I did just that, I started my relationship with God.
After I came to Jesus and ask Him to come into my heart I can tell you this, even though everything has not always gone the way I wanted them to go. I can truly say that after all these years Jesus has always been with me and guided me through life. No matter the situation He is there to love me and help me. Jesus filled the void in my life. And gave me eternal life in heaven someday.
