Before I decided to follow Jesus, my life was a struggle. I was lonely and unproductive a lot of the time. I was always trying to handle things myself and have them turn out wrong. I was always searching to be happy and not finding it. I was always wondering “Is this it? Is this all life is?” There were a lot of good things happening in my life, but there was always something missing. Now I know what it was. It was Jesus!
The hardest thing I ever did was to just give up and trust in him no matter what. I lay on an operating table having a heart attack and realized I could die! I started to pray: “Lord, please show me the way to you.” How blessed I am to have this second chance at life, not to do it alone but to have the Lord right here with me to show me the way. He helps me make my hard decisions and my easy ones too. I can talk to him no matter where I am at anytime and I am never alone. What a blessing! Good or bad he is always there for me.
Since I decided to follow Jesus, I am so happy with the direction he has led me in. I am complete. I understand there are gonna be bumps in the road of life, but Jesus will be there for me and help me through them. God is good. I thank the Lord for my church, my family, and my friends.
