Before I had a relationship with Christ I did everything for myself or for the people around me. I didn’t have any purpose besides trying to be successful in the future, but I was trusting and putting hope in myself with no promise of succes or joy.
When I met Christ I came to the end of myself and the beginning of who He is. I trusted with my heart that Christ is my Savior and what He did on the cross was for me and my sins. I realized that I was putting my hope in the temporary, not in the eternal!
Since I’ve had a relationship with Christ, I’ve never been alone because I am in His family. He always loves, protects, provides, guides, and is my strength when I am weak. Best of all, I don’t have to worry about being succesful in this world because God has a different standard for success. Also, I am learning to do things through God’s direction and plan for my life, instead of trying to figure my life out all by myself. We just take it day by day, verse by verse!
