I was very angry as a child. I felt lost and confused like Jesus had left me to hurt. I was sexually abused during my childhood. I didn’t believe there was a God out there who loved me, that would let such things happen to me. I tried many things to fill the gap I felt inside, but the emptiness was never filled. I went to church and thought just maybe this Jesus thing is real.
Finally at church camp I committed my life to Jesus. When I said that prayer, instantly the gap was filled. I’m not saying my life has been great, but I know God allows those things to bring us strength and because there is sin in the world. My relationship with Jesus is everything to me. I don’t know what I would do without Him. He is my rock when I feel weak and empty. He gives me strength. We were not meant to go through life alone.
I know there is so much I can do to impact the world. There are so many people who are hurting like I once hurt. I am here to tell them about a God who heals, comforts and forgives. He heals those who are hurting and lost, comforts the motherless and fatherless, and forgives those who have caused hurt. He has fully completed my life. I know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He can comfort even the deepest of hurts.
