Anonymous asked: How did you come to know the Lord?
Well, I was raised in a Christian home so every sunday we would go to church and my dad would read the Bible at dinner. However, I learned that just because someone was raised in a Christian home doesn’t make them a Christian. And just because someone says they are a Christian…that doesn’t mean they love Jesus either! I never did drugs, smoked, partied, had sex or got into trouble…mainly because I was so scared of what my dad would do to me if he found out. I pretty much was a pretend Christian. I said I was one…but in reality I didn’t really care much about God. I cared more about what my dad would do to me, than what God thought about me.
Honestly, it wasn’t until September 12th 2010 I started really living for God. It just hit me like a ton of bricks. I was wasting my life! I had no passions or dreams really. Here’s my journal entry,
“I long to be part of something that requires all of me. Something dangerous and worth dying for. God, I want you to use me in anyway. My head just can’t stop thinking about how short our life on Earth is. I have this life to be used for Your glory. I don’t want to stay in one place when I have this huge world to venture out into. Am I the only one with these thoughts? I hate this worldly place and I want to just drop everything and live for You. In the end, You are the ONLY thing that matters.”
So ever since September 12th, I kinda realized God is a big deal. I’m not saying it’s been an easy year, because it hasn’t. January-March I got a boyfriend and I stopped reading my Bible and kinda stopped living for God. But God took away the things that were distracting me from the plan He has! I came into this world with nothing and I will also die with nothing…so what will I do with this one life I have been given? Yeah, that’s when I became serious about God.
