New Life, Who's This?

When I first decided to go to church I had no idea what I was getting myself  into or what I expected the outcome to be, I just knew that my life needed to change & fast. I didn't grow up in church, in fact the only time I ever went was on Easter Sunday and that was because my mom made me but I knew I believed in God, I knew there was a Heaven and Hell, I knew that the world I was living in was getting crazier and scarier and I didn't want to get sucked into it. I knew how everyone around me was living and I didn't want my life to end up like that. I wanted more, happiness, a family a marriage I knew if I couldn't figure out how to get those things on my own then God would show me.

My first day attending church was like the first day at a new school,  of course I didn't  know anyone and I had only just moved there a few months ago but I stuck it out and I kept going back, I was hungry for the word and desperate to change my life. I had never experienced someone teaching me about God the way the Apostle did. How he explained who God was and why Jesus did what he did for us. It was like listening to the history channel and learning where i came from and who I really was in Christ. The Apostle spoke as if he knew what we were going through, all our life problems and how there was a solution and a way out of all of it. It was God! The answer to all life's problems, there was no situation or person that God could not fix if they were willing to give their lives to him.

I had been going to church for a few weeks, and my days were starting to look brighter, of course all my problems were still there and my life style hadn't changed much but I was getting up every Sunday morning and attending church, the more I heard the word the stronger my Faith got and then God started to move and work things out in my life, he had sent me something so special I never saw it coming!
