I was raised in a Christian deacon’s home, with active involvement in a local church. In fact, at the age of nine I was baptized and by twelve I was the church pianist. I never got involved in any sinful behaviors such as drinking,drugs or sex, but in my teenage years, I realized that something was drastically missing from my life. Although I had gone through all the proper activities, I was not a Christian.
By the time I was a senior in high school I had come to the realization that things were not right in my spiritual life, but pride was keeping me from admitting that to anyone. However, in a revival service at our church, I gave my life to Jesus, professing my faith in Him as Savior and Lord.
I suddenly experienced the very things that had been so absent in my life. The doubts were replaced with confidence, and the apprehension and fear with peace. Life is a joy when you know that it is in the care of God.
