I was nine years old and my life had not really even begun yet. It is true that I had accomplished many things as a nine year old male. I knew how to ride a bike, I knew how to fish, I was capable of riding a four wheeler around my neighborhood and I had just recently begun to take piano lessons. But all these accomplishments would not quench my desire to have purpose in life.
It was not until I was a nine year old kid sitting in the back of church listening to the pastor give a communion service that I realized what I had been missing. It was then that I knew I needed the Lord Jesus Christ to come into my life and give the forgiveness and purpose I had been longing for.
My life turned around after that day and it was not long before I was baptized. Now that I have purpose in my life I have become a much happier and I love life more.
