I found out about Jesus, My Father at Senior High Breakthru and it was a great feeling. That summer after Breakthru I went to Peru on a mission trip with Christ United when I accepted Christ. I thought I was going to teach the Peruvian kids, but instead of me teaching the kids the kids taught me. They taught me all you really needed was God to have a great life instead of all the worldly things I had and wanted and I thought that was making me happy but it has been God that has made my life better.
I have learned no matter what you do Jesus will always love you unconditionally. He doesn’t want you to go to hell and suffer. He wants you in Heaven with Him. Also I know that God is with me every single day of my life and will never leave me even in my good days or bad days. Also I know that God knows what we need even if we don’t ask Him. If you ever think you are missing something, Go to Jesus because He will fulfill that empty hole of yours. I have several struggles in my life but the biggest one are reading the Bible daily and praying daily.
The biggest struggle I’ve had was not being spiritual – I’ve always believed in Jesus. But I just couldn’t cope with the fact that my loved ones were being taken away. It wasn’t until reading 2 Corinthians 5:6-8 and understanding the scripture that it wasn’t God taking them away from me; only God receiving them into his holy space. I spent many years questioning God, and it was only when I began to follow along with the readings that I understood that you have to come to Jesus with an open mind and open heart for him to come into your life and that’s what I’ve done. I’m ready to accept Jesus as my Lord and Savior and do as he would’ve done and does do for his people. It hasn’t been an easy journey- there’s been times were I couldn’t believe and times I couldn’t imagine but I’m here now ready to explore more with you all.
