Nine years ago my life drastically changed. I was only fourteen years old and lost my mother to cancer. I did not understand how a good God could let something like that happen. It was the first time I had to really think about what I believed. The years that followed I tried to find a way to find satisfaction in anything the world had to offer. I became bitter toward the world. But I evenually found satisfation in a girl. I placed my hope in her. She became my identity. I pushed all others out of my life. The girl was the one I thought would always be there and never let me down. But eventually my bitterness spread to her and she wanted nothing to do with me. I was lost. I did not know where to go. I did not think there was hope for me after how I lived the last 5 years. I found my sisters Bible and thought I would see what it was all about. I began to read about Jesus. I realized that this life was not about what I could do but what he already did. That I was forgiven and made perfect in Christ. That He can be my hope. Four years ago my life again drastically changed. I gave my life to Chirst. I was no longer bitter but full of excitement for each day. My life was no longer living for selfishnes but to live for Christ. I knew that He loved me and I can be fulfilled through Him.
