My name is Emma and I am 22 years old.
I’m going to share with you a little about my life.
Growing up I always felt the need to find love ,at a young age my mother left the family for another man and left my brother and I with my dad.
My dad got remarried and started a new family pushing my brother and I to the side which caused the family to fall apart.
This caused me to feel like I was unwanted and wasn’t loved.
A lot of hatred began to grow inside of me towards my mother for rejecting us,
I went to school seeking this love in my friends doing what they were doing to fit in,
I started going to parties, swearing and drinking,
but I still didn’t find what I lacking.
I then went to a drama presentation of a mans changed life. This man grew up with a troubled family and was involved in gangs and drugs which made links to my home life. I sat there and thought if Jesus can do this for this man how much could he do in my life. That is where I made the decision to give my life to Jesus Christ asking for forgiveness of my sins. Although I didn’t think Iwas a bad person I knew in my heart that I needed to be forgiven for my sins. Through that one prayer the things I was searching for growing up I found it in Jesus I found love,hope, joy, a sense of belonging. I don’t have to be someone I’m not because I’m accepted in Jesus Christ.
God has also given me a husband that loves me for who I am.
Giving my life to Christ was the best decision of my life.
