Some might say I have always been a person who feels things deeply. Growing up I have many wonderful memories but also recall painful feelings. I recall being inwardly desperate for “something” firm and unmovable to hold on to. Hungering for unconditional acceptance, love and significance. I had many great friends and a good life from what other people might see, but honestly, I was adrift on an emotional sea.
Little did others know as a teen, I was struggling with such a strong sense of desperation. One day I discovered what I was looking for (whether I realized it or not) in someone else and wanted to know what it was and were I could get it. Then a friend helped me know more about Jesus Christ. As my understanding of Him grew, I sensed His love for me was even more intense than the feelings of desperation I had inside me. I came to trust Him and He dramatically changed my life for the better!
Since the day I turned to Christ, I have discovered Him to be something solid to hold onto. He is someone who understands me to the depths of who I am. I have significance. I have unconditional love and acceptance. In God I have found meaning and purpose, direction and understanding for my life. He has also helped me learn to reach out and serve others. I love to share what it means to know Him!
