What was life like before you met Jesus?

Before I met Jesus, I said I believed in Christ but I didn’t believe. I said I knew Christ but I didn’t know Him. I was going to music for relief but it only provided temporary support. I wasn’t reading my bible and I wasn’t praying a lot.

How did you meet Jesus?

“For day and night your hand was heavy upon me, my strength was dried up by the heat of the summer.*Selah” - Psalms 32:4
I was going to the summer of 5th and 6th grade and I was having friend trouble. I turned to my mom and she prayed with me and told me to consult God.
* My name is mentioned many times in Psalms and means pause and reflect in Hebrew and in this instance it means pause and reflect on this verse.

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

“He who testifies to these things says,’Surely I am coming soon’ Amen Come, Lord Jesus! - *Revelation 22:20
I turn to God when I have trouble with friends and I love those who are my enemies. The current world is changing especially social media wise and it can be scary. We need to turn off our phones and open our hearts. I trust that the Lord will guide me through my tough times.
*This is the second to last verse of the Bible so I thought that was kind of cool.
