I first gave my life to Christ at a Billy Graham crusade when I was 11 years old. Through my teenage years I drifted away from my beliefs, getting carried along with the world and the temptations that being a teenager brings. My roots weren't deep. I stopped praying, reading my Bible, going to church. I felt I was not worthy because of the things I had done over those nine years. At the age of 27 I had a stillborn child. Nothing prepares you for the death of a child; to have felt its life within me as it kicked against my tummy and to plan for so much for the future. It was a time of immense grief. Shortly after I lost my baby I met up with an old school friend who was a Christian. She led me back to Christ and this was the pivotal point where my life changed for the better, back to the loving arms of my Jesus. I truly believe that he never left me. It was me who turned away, feeling unworthy because of my sins but all the time God was waiting for me to return to him. Life was meaningless during those nine years in the desert but now I share each day with hope that whatever happens, Jesus is with me, guiding me by his Spirit. He wants me to come to him, each and every moment. I had made the world my God, instead of making Jesus number one in my life.
