Then, it happened. It was after I had had a particularly bad day. I remember that I felt lost and alone, with nowhere to turn. At that moment, I felt a feeling of love and peace wash over me. That is the only way I can describe it. Love, but not love as I had ever felt love before. I knew right then that everything was going to be ok and I became truly saved and a full-fledged believer. From that time on, I put my trust in Christ.

After several months of conversations and internal wrestling matches with myself, I realized that the faith I thought I had was really a selfish and Christ-rejecting attempt at earning my own salvation. So on a June night alone on a bible camp hillside, I cried and repented to God of how foolish I had been and how sorrowful I was for rejecting his son who died for me. At that moment I accepted Christ as my savior and his work on the cross as the only thing I needed to be reconciled to God.
