My mom tells me that I accepted God into my life when I was about three years old. Over the years as my relationship has grown with Him, I have felt the need to “renew” my faith. As I’ve learned, you can’t really do that. Once you’ve accepted Him, you’re in it for the long haul. What I did figure out is that you can heal your faults that you have had in your walk with Christ. You can also help heal others while healing yourself.
About seven years ago, my aunt had a miscarriage. I knew that she had lost the baby before anyone had told me about it. I walked out into the living room with my cousin and my grandmother was crying. She told me what had happened but I already knew. Then when I was in sixth grade at Science Camp, my great grandmother passed away. I already knew that too. I think that The Lord told me what was happening before so that I could comfort others through these hard times.
When I was in eighth grade, my friend’s mom had a brain tumor. Her dad was turning to drinking to heal his wounds. She came to me sobbing when she got the news from her dad. He TEXTED her after one of our volleyball games. She wanted to live with my family while her dad cleaned himself up and her mother was in the hospital. I remember telling her over and over again that The Lord never gives us something that we can’t handle without him.
My freshman year was really rough for me. I came from a small school and was dumped into a giant high school. One of my best friends that I met that year, came to me and told me that she thought that she was pregnant. Her and her boyfriend had been dating less than a month. It ended up that she was. She lost the baby about two months after that. This happened three other times that year. It wasn’t hard for me to comfort her at all. I thought that I would have judged her a lot more now that I think about it, but not once did I ever think badly of her. I know for a fact, that was God helping me through that.
I don’t go to church every Sunday, and I don’t go to Bible Study every Wednesday, but I know that I am a Christian and the The Lord is working within me everyday. I am now interested in getting a degree in Youth Ministry and teaching at a Christian school or working at a church. I work towards pleasing God and being a Proverbs 31 Woman.
May God bless you all and be with you through all of your struggles!

You have a lot of patience and endurance. It’s neat to see that you have a desire to reach out and comfort others no matter what they’re going through. Keep chasing after God and seek His will for your life.
