Growing up, I did not live in a Christian home. I knew of God, but I did not know Him. I was depressed, lonely, anxious, irritable, and done with life. I did not think that anything in my life could turn around and make me happy. My heart needed a savior. I was introduced to the church, and I was saved that same day. My life did not make a 180 degree turn. There was no instant miracle, but I had someone to cherish, someone to walk through life with me, and someone to carry me during the hard times. He was Jesus.
The change does not happen overnight – but since salvation I have experienced a transformation in the way I perceive, endure, and actively live the life I have been blessed with. I am being molded to be more like Jesus every day, and although sometimes I stray away from my faith, I can still feel Him working to become a better, more Christ-like version of me.
