I grew up in a loving Christian family. At a young age, I realized I was separated from God and needed Jesus to forgive me of my sins. I spent my adolescent years in church surrounded by Christian friends – life was fairly easy. I soon moved off to college and life became a lot more difficult. I was just living for myself. After several years I felt completely alone. Nothing I did filled that desire to be unconditionally loved. No matter how hard I tried I couldn’t change my destructive lifestyle.
Because of my upbringing I knew who to turn to and what I needed to do. Although I had always known who Jesus was and what He did for me, I never really completely gave over total control of my life. As I grew up, things got more complicated. So a few years ago I did just that, I literally cried out to God for help and completely surrendered my life to Jesus Christ.
Jesus changed me. He made the changes I desperately needed that I couldn’t do on my own. I now have a real joy, feel a real unconditional love and live with a purpose. Serving Christ has become my top priority. My life still gets more and more complicated year after year, and there are times that are tough; however, I face them now with the strength of Christ, Creator of the universe.
