I came to know the Lord during my middle school years, but I never knew how big of a sacrifice that Jesus was for my sins—
I was raised in a God-loving family. My family raised me to know that Jesus was my saving grace. However, I was just the “say I am Christian”, I went to church & did youth groups; outside of church, I did not have a personal relationship with Christ.
Around middle school I found myself in a dark hole. Friends began to tease me, teachers stopped believing in me, and I simply felt alone. I dug myself to rock bottom. I found myself having to go to a children’s psychologist to deal with my anxiety problems. I made myself sick every day before school, and I felt like I was a failure.
That day I hit rock-bottom was the day I came to know Christ. I began to see that I am not in control of my life what so ever. I had to give my life to Christ so that he could work his plan within me. After that day, I knew things would not immediately change over night, but that when I trusted in him he would work his power within me.
It has been over seven years since the day that I gave Christ my life, but I can say it has changed my life forever. It has been a roller coaster of emotions, I am still a sinner who is not perfect. However, that is how we were born, not perfect. Christ, Jesus our Lord, & Savior is the King who is perfect.
I hope that with my testimony I can inspire others around me who feel like they are alone to know, that they are not. There is a God-loving savior out there waiting for you to fall in his arms. All you need to do is accept the fact that your not perfect & only Christ is the way to your salvation. My wish is for others to see that Christ is the reason I find happiness everyday & is the reason for the smile on my face.
My prayer to you who have not found this everlasting love to take a second and pray for guidance. That is what I had to do when I hit rock-bottom. Ever since that decision of allowing Christ into my life, it has changed my life forever.
