I grew up in church and always knew about God, but I never fully committed to either. I would always pray and talk to God, but I didn’t give my life to Him until the end of my sophomore year at high school. That year I was at my worst; I tried to find myself in all of the wrong places. So while I was "searching", I did some not-so-great things as I tried to look "cool" and fit in. But as time went on, I finally realized that this wasn’t God’s plan for me. For all the years of trying to find my own way, I found out that Jesus was the path I was searching for the whole entire time. So during the summer, I cried out to God and He met me. He touched my life and changed me. He made me a new person. He renewed me and He’s making me better everyday. I do my best to read my Word and surround myself with godly people to help keep me grounded in the Lord. It’s especially hard as a teen to keep your eyes on Him, but everyday I pray that my heart continues to hunger for Jesus so I can grow stronger in Him everyday. For all that He has done for me, giving my life to Jesus is the least I can do.
