Never Alone

My story may not look extraordinary, my life has been pretty normal. There have been ups and downs like there is for everyone.  However, when I was little, I felt like there was something missing in my life. I felt empty and lonely (but why? I was a child, and I was surrounded by people).

My parents used to take us from time to time to church so I always assumed there was a God. So I used to prey whenever I was facing a problem and I was only hoping he would 'please!' listen. The older I got, the more I could feel the loneliness.  I was a teenager then, and at that age we are pretty vulnerable and we can go try to fill the emptiness and loneliness in pretty awful things.  

Thankfully, God had a different plan for me. I had a friend who invited me to go to church with her.  She was a pretty cool girl so I didn't think it would be 'uncool' for me to go with her.  So, I was 15 years old, and I started to go to church with her every week.  There and then, I heard the message that would change my life and would fill that emptiness and take away all loneliness. Even though I am a regular common person, there is a God and he cares about me and he does listen to my prayers.  All that thanks to Jesus.

Now I continue having my ups and downs like everyone else.  Except, my story is not normal anymore.  There is this powerful amazing force that I can feel.  God's love and presence and the certainty that He is with me at all times.  And I may be inconsistent in my relationship with Him, but He is not.  He is faithful.  Just to know that, well, it changed my life.  And I wish I could explain it to you in words, but I rather have you experience it  :-)
