I have grown up in a Christian home, going to church all my life. Iíve got a great, loving family. I asked God to come into my life and heart when I was about six, and Heís been with me ever since. Donít get me wrong.
Christians donít have perfect lives, and each day comes with its difficulties. But God always helps me get through each day. So hereís the story of my life, and how God has helped me each step of the way.
I was born in January of 1995 to my mom. She had to leave her boyfriend of that time, because while she was pregnant, she found out that he was involved with drugs, stealing, and other stuff. It was very hard for her. She was a single, first time mom. But she was strong. After I was born, my mom had to get a job. It was at her job that she would find her future husband and my future dad. They started dating, and eventually got married in December of 1995. It was a huge, happy year for the three of us.Eventually when I got older, about 10, the subject of my biological father came up. At first I didnít understand. But as I got older and my knowledge grew, I understood. There were times when I almost thought I was a mistake. I prayed and asked God to help me understand. Then one Sunday, about a week after, I prayed and asked God for help to understand. There was a lesson at church. I knew right away it was just for me, and straight from God Himself. It was about how everyone has a purpose, and God has planned each second of our lives. In other words, no one is a mistake! From there on, I knew I was put on this earth for a specific reason, and so is everyone else on this earth!
Accepting Jesus into my heart and life is, no doubt, the best choice I have, and ever will have, made. To this day, I have never had a sip of alcohol, smoked or chewed tobacco, or done drugs. I havenít even been asked . . . yet. When, or if, the time comes when someone asks me to try it, I know God will be with me and help me to say no. And He can help you too! Of course I fall short of God sometimes, lie or disobey and stuff like that, but God will always forgive me as long as I try harder to do whatís right. The biggest piece of advice I give, and will ever give, is to fall on God. I canít stress it enough. Itís the best choice I ever made, and itís the best one youíll ever make too. Always remember that God loves you, and everyone has a purpose! I am not a mistake and neither are you!
