She searched the world for true love, but she found it where she would not expect it
When I was 6 years old, my dad was imprisoned. In this time my mum started to use drugs and became an addict. One day she visited a church – Assemblies of God – where she met people and she realised they knew the real, living God. She found that there is love, peace and joy in their hearts. God touched her through one song and on this day, her life was changed. She started going to church on Sundays and going to small groups and when she took me I really liked it, therefore, I started going with her. When I was 13 years old, the small groups were held in our house, but I did not want to attend the groups because I had my own group of friends who I was going out with.
I started to have a party lifestyle and was drinking and getting drunk often. I was searching for love in the world.
My mum always asked me to stay for at least one small group, but I always refused. She kept asking me so one day I stayed with her and joined the small group. In this time, God touched me and it changed my life right there at that moment. I realised God is real. My dream is to have a great family that has God first place in their lives.
Even though you are in this world, partying and trying to fit in will not be the fulfilment that you need. God will give you something totally different.
When I feel sad, I always read God’s word and I always read my favourite verse: “Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the LORD your God will be with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
