My parents were divorced at when I was 12 years old. This left me angry with my parents, myself, and with God. Even though I was dealing with this anger, there were people, neighbors, God sent into my life to help. These and I was angry; at God them and myself. These neighbors continued to faithfully check of me and my brother and sister. They sought to bring us to their church.
There came a time in my life where for weeks I wrestled with the need to make a commitment to God through Jesus Christ. Inside I was wrestling with God. Then, a couple weeks after going to a church camp, I released all my anger to Him and asked Him to forgive me and come to live in my life and heart. That day I felt my sins were forgiven and a peace, impossible to describe with words, flooded over my soul.
God helped me to release the anger I had toward my parents. I was also able to release the feeling I was responsible for their divorce. I have experienced a wonderful healing by forgiving those who have hurt me and the wonderful feeling of being forgiven for my own sin. I now know I am safe for eternity in the wonderful arms of Jesus. As I surrender my life into God’s hands he continues to lead me in his way. That is the most important thing that has ever happened to me.
