Why?  I always felt, empty, mad, and depressed.  I never knew why, until . . . 

I'm 32 years old, have been married for fifteen years, and have three children.  I was raised up going to different churches and being forced to go.  I lived in a very strict home where I could not enjoy myself as a teenager doing different things.  It caused me to leave home at a young age.

I was seventeen when I got married.  I had my first child at the age of eighteen.  When I turned 21, I started to go out to the clubs.  I would drink alcohol and smoke cigarettes and marijuana.  I made a habit of doing these things a lot.  It put a strain on my marriage, and my husband and I had a lot of problems.  I had a bad attitude but never wanted to admit it.  I pushed away my spouse and others.

Eventually, I started to visit my mother's church.  I got saved at a ladies meeting, and it was wonderful.  I had been saved before but was backslidden.  I knew this time was going to be different, and it was because God filled the empty place inside of me.  I was rebellious before and did not like constructive criticism.

Now, I know what I have to do to grow as a Christian.  It is all in the best book you can ever read, the Holy Bible.  It  is all about having a personal relationship with Jesus Christ.

There are many things that I still struggle with today, but I have the Lord on my side to guide me.  I am not perfect, but I know the Lord is there for me and He will be there for you too.

I hope that you let the Lord work in your life the way He worked in mine.  I don't feel depressed, mad, or empty anymore because the Lord has filled my life with joy, peace, and fulfillment.
