I don't remember most of my life before Christ, I grew up in a Christian home, both my parents were involved in the church, and I was in a lot of the programs at church, but even as a 7 year old I felt something missing that couldn't be filled by the things of the world.

It was a Monday and my dad and I were going to a Bible study that we did together, that night during the lecture my leader was talking about Hell and how it was a real place of eternal suffering, gnashing of teeth, and agony, and while he was giving the lecture I felt something inside (the Holy Spirit) telling me to listen and concentrate more on what he was saying. I felt something change inside of me and I felt myself transforming into a true believer of Christ. That night when we went home I prayed and admitted to God that I knew I was and am a sinner. I told God that I believed in my heart and with all of my heart that Jesus is the Savior of the world that came to die for my sins on the cross and then rose three days later. I also asked God to transform me to be more like Him.

God has been changing me even 6 years after I committed my life to Him, even though I sometimes drift away from him he pulls me back, and I know I will never be perfect but I am trying my best to overcome the temptations of the world with His help. I find comfort in the fact that Jesus endured the temptations I do but He still remained sinless and pure throughout them.
