Before I met Christ, I had a constant feeling inside that I was incomplete. Even though I was only a child, I knew that I had done things that were wrong, and I wanted to be forgiven and free from guilt. I came to realize that the Lord Jesus was the answer to my inner needs.
As I came to learn what Jesus Christ had done for me when He died on the cross, I wanted Him to come and live in my heart and life. One evening as I lay in my bed, unsure about my relationship to the Lord, I ask Jesus to come into my heart, forgive my sins, and be my Savior and Lord forever. At that time I knew that I had begun a life long journey with Jesus in my heart.
I experienced all the same struggles, disappointments, and “growing pains” that anyone would. But the difference was the Lord Jesus was always there to encourage me and show me how to grow through my failures. There are still times I don’t do what I should or even have the right attitude. But, I know that Christ is within me and He is always there. He is the one who forgives me when I fail and He is the one who gives me strength. My life goal is to constantly work to be more like my Savior, Jesus Christ.
