What was life like before you met Jesus?

My life before Jesus was lacking in loving myself as he loved me. I had a hard time with people making fun of me. I stopped eating and started excessively working out. I tried to tell people about it but I felt like no one cared so I kept my emotions bottled up inside me, sometimes they would get too full and I would feel terrible and I didn’t know what to do.

How did you meet Jesus?

I trusted Jesus when my grandma asked me what was wrong, and I finally told her everything. She was there for me at my lowest because I was ashamed of what I was doing. It took me some time to let people in and then I found God was always there for me. She explained how Jesus loved me for me, how he doesn’t make mistakes when making people, he accepted me just the way I was. I also found out God is always there for me. I prayed every night and have gotten better at loving myself as God made me no matter what. She also explained that even though I can’t see him God is always there with me. Joshua 1:9 says “be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged, for the lord your God will be with you wherever you go”

After being saved by Jesus, what is your life like now?

One time I said that I didn’t want to be alive because of all the stuff that happened at school. I cried a lot and didn’t tell anyone. I prayed and prayed, and it got better because I knew that God was there for me always. He didn’t just save me from everything people had done to me and what I had done. He always forgives me when I ask and I will always be for God no matter what happens. I know he is there for me no matter what. 1 John 1:9 says “if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins.”
