I grew up in a church going family where God was a big part of our lives. I came to a realization at the age of 7 that I was missing something because I saw a difference in my Grandpa’s life and mine. He had a peace that I wanted, and I knew it was only through a relationship with Jesus that he had that.
I came home from church one night and asked my mom if I could be a Christian like Grandpa. She prayed with me and I accepted Jesus as my savior next to my bed. Since then, my life has been full of joy and pain. I have made some bad choices regarding relationships, and have filled my mind with things that are not positive. But, I have also had a God that forgives me when I stray and always takes me back when I ask for forgiveness and turn away from my wrong choice.
I have a renewed sense of direction in my life, and I know the joy and peace that I have is from my relationship with Jesus. He has also blessed me with a beautiful, pure relationship with my wife!
