Hey everyone! I've been posting about Christian movies, music, and books and writing about the deeper meaning behind them all. But, today I want to write something a little different. I had a friend recommend that I share my faith and how I came to know Jesus and I thought it was a great idea! I guess I'll start from the beginning! I've grown up in church my whole life. When I was little, my parents were the high school youth leaders at our church. They were there all the way until I was in middle school. Whenever I got to high school, we still went to that church for a while but we went through a couple different leaders, just because it was such a time commitment for them to spend. Close to the middle of my sophomore year of high school, we decided that God was calling us to go to a different church, so we left the church that I had known pretty much all of my life.
After we left, the challenging part was finding a new one to attend that we felt God leading us to! We tried a couple in a town close to us and then tried a couple in Wichita (the big city about 30 minutes away from where we live). After about a month of looking, we found one. The sermons were good, the youth group was incredible, everyone was so friendly, and we really felt like God was calling us there. Personally, I hadn't felt a feeling like this yet so it was a totally new experience, but it was incredible. We felt like we had found the place that God wanted us to be. And so, I started going to youth group and Sunday school with the high school and I thought at first that it was gonna be hard, but it wasn't. Everyone was so friendly and welcoming and now looking back two years later, this has been two of the best years of my life. The first person that talked to me here is now my best friend and I feel so comfortable around everyone. God really knew and knows what he is doing. Before I started going to this church, I didn't understand sermons and my personal relationship with Jesus wasn't very good, I had rarely done a quiet time. But, thanks to all the support I have here from my pastor, youth leader, and friends I understand and I have a much better relationship with Jesus. I'm still working and learning but I've come a long way from where I used to be! God is very good!
