I always believed but i wasnt ready to commit myself to him when i was a teen or part of college. When i was at a low and upset over a bf breaking it off with me., i called onto God and was ready to commit to Him and knew His plans for me were better. I had no christian friends but i forced my shy self to get involved in a college and career single group at church and meet new people. I was a new creation and needed a new life and new friends and was 21 yrs old.
Didn't. I was raised strict Roman Catholic, started asking questions no one could answer at 13, studied everything I could get my hands on in the following years, and realized at 19 just how extraordinarily unlikely the existence of any gods was.
When I was 5. I heard the Easter story told by my Methodist minister foster dad. Having been taken out of an abusive home myself, I fell at the cross sobbing uncontrollably. I couldn't believe all that this man (Jesus) had endured for me, who at the time I believed I was unlovable, unworthy of being protected let alone have someone give their life for! I've walked with God since & will never leave Him--because He gave His child to protect me---an abused, unloved, unwanted 5 yr old....
