I was 9 years old when I got saved. My life before I had Christ is important to me in my walk because without the diligence and the example of my parents, I would never have come to the realization that Jesus loved me, a little 9 year old girl who lived in Missouri. I look to my family and my parents especially for the spiritual guidance that led me to the Lord.
I didn’t fully realize how great God was until I reached high school. There I encountered temptations and a path that was not God’s. Through the training I had recieved at and before the age of 9, I could see the right path and begin to apply his will in my life, slowly, beginning with faith and trust, which is hard to give.
After I met Christ, my life turned into a roller coaster of events. Satan has pulled me in so many directions and I have followed sometimes. I then realize how wonderful God is and am amazed at the loving mercy he shows me in my sins. I have not always been close to God in these last 12 years, but I never have forgotten what Jesus Christ did for me the day he took my sins away as a 9 year old girl. He is my Savior and Lord.
