I had no idea what to do before I found Christ. I was walking the wrong path. I had given into temptation. I had done drugs and actually let it get me in a lot of trouble. I had given into smoking because I let my old friends talk me into it. I had even started cutting myself. I lost all control over my mind soul and body. And it all started when I lost my grandpa. And kept escalating when my dad was told he may have cancer.
Then I started going to church because my aunt said she was going and I said I wanted to tag along. That Sunday I realized I needed to change. I needed to live my life for Christ. A few weeks later Brittany came to get me from school and we went for coffee. As we were sitting there I realized I was ready for a new beginning. I realized I couldn’t handle anymore. So sitting there in the coffee shop I prayed to receive Jesus Christ into my life. I broke down and put my life in his hands.
Now I’m sitting here crying, looking at my past because I realized it was so wrong. This was the best decision I’ve ever made. My life has been a lot easier. I have someone I can always trust in, someone who is there when everyone has left me alone and broken. I have made so many better decisions. I have stopped cutting, I have learned to love and trust. I’ve learned never to give up and that praying can help a lot. I prayed every day for my dad to get better and, when he went to the doctor, they said everything was gone. I have changed my friends and yes, I still sin sometimes but everyone does. Nobody’s perfect. I have kept my head up and trust God will take care of everything.
