At the age of 7, I “accepted Jesus into my heart”. However, for the next 14 years I lived my life the way that I wanted to. By high school I was involved in heavy drugs and alchohol. I had a very distanced relationship with my parents and put them through alot of pain. By college my partying had grown even more, and after one year I dropped out and gave my life to partying and selling drugs. I did whatever gave me pleasure and made me feel good.
In 2003 I found myself without a home and not much money. I moved back home. God began dealing with me and convicting me of the sin in my life. I knew I had broken God’s Law and was a sinner in the face of a holy and perfect God. I knew if I died I would go to hell. I was scared. I finally made the decision to turn my whole life over to Him, repent from sin completely, and trust my life to Him in every way.
After I repented and trusted my life to Him completely, He gave me a thirst for righteousness to replace my thirst for sin. He was faithful to give me a new heart with new desires, and brought Christian people into my life. He replaced my empty shallow relationships with genuine Godly ones. Life has been an incredible adventure since coming to Him. I have a deep rooted faith and joy in pleasing my Father, and deep joy in knowing where I will be for all eternity.
