I've been in church my whole life and put my trust in Christ as my personal Savior at the age of 5 on Easter Sunday! It was in Sunday School that day that, while going over the resurrection of Christ, I realized my need for a Savior. No matter how innocent I may have been as a 5-year old I was a sinner who lived my life for my desires. No matter how small the sin, it is breaking God's law and thus has to be paid for! Fast forward 7 years and I was baptized at the age of 12 alongside my two brothers. It was awesome to celebrate alongside the church in a public proclamation of my personal relationship with Christ. I wish I could say that I took advantage of growing up in church and furthered my relationship with Christ much further than I had, but I really didn't take the time to pursue Christ on my own until after graduating high school. My faith was very much founded on my parent's faith. I left the church I had been baptized in and grown up in after I graduated high school and that summer left me very unsure of who I was and where my relationship with the Lord was going. Thankfully I landed at a great church that pours into me! These past three years have been a time of substantial growth and change and that leaves me even more excited for the life that the Lord has planned for me! I know that it won't be easy, but that will just make it that much sweeter. Each and every day the Lord reveals to me how much of a sinner I am, but each and every day He reminds me that He has paid that debt for me.
