I was born and raised in a Christian home. I went to a Christian school from first to eighth grade, got saved in fourth grade. A guest speaker preached about how Jesus suffered on the cross for our sins, He died so we could be in Heaven with Him. That blew my fourth grade mind away, and I knew I wanted to spend my life living for Him. My life went on, went through the routine Christian thing. Summer of 10’ I thought my life was amazing. I had just arrived home from church camp, I was fired up for Jesus, and looked forward to being a Freshman at my Christian school. My parents then informed me that I was going to go to a public school for the rest of my high school career. I felt as if they ripped me away from my home, my family, my everything. I was really broken up about it. I stopped going to youth group services, stopped talking to my friends, and became isolated from everything and everyone. What made it worse was the next summer one of my good friends died, and my youth pastor got fired. I was really upset with God. I blamed him for all my problems and became bitter towards everyone. At school I was ashamed of being a Christian and started acting like all my friends. I was not glorifying God. I went two years without a solid relationship with God, and its been the hardest two years of my life. I simply didn’t enjoy life anymore because of all the bitterness and hate in me. I realized that I didn’t want to live life hating everything and despising everyone I see. I want to live my life being happy, willing to do anything to glorify my creator. I want my life to be led by Christ, and blessed in every way comprehensible. My life belongs to Jesus. Letting go and letting God take care of everything is really a relief. Putting all my trust in Him has been the best decision of my life, and I know I will never go back on Him ever again.
