Well, I think that maybe my story hasn’t really begun, yet.
I grew up in a Christian home, so it wasn’t really unusual to believe in God and ask Him into your heart at a young age.
I don’t know if I really thought that much about really knowing God.
I would say I probably didn’t have much of an understanding of what it was like to really know God.
I went to church and I probably talked to God, but it wasn’t really a real relationship with Him, I don’t think.
I seemed to think that praying a prayer was what saved me.
We moved to a different state when I was twelve years old.
At around thirteen years old I started to wonder if I truly did know God.
I think God was doing this, because I really needed to see whether I knew Him or not.
The summer I was fourteen years old I thought I knew Him, but I seemed to be relying on feelings.
I seemed full of depression at a point during my high school years.
Anger and rebellion seemed to be in my life.
We moved again when I was sixteen.
Well, between those years and now (now I am twenty-one years old) it has been really amazing, because this past summer God has kept me from getting into a lot of sin, I really believe.
And I don’t even know if I really wanted to stay out of sin, but God held me away from it.
I think God has a plan, maybe I don’t know Him yet, but I believe He has a plan.
Sometimes I get really depressed wondering if I will ever know God.
I struggle with rebellion and anger and I rely too much on how I feel.
But I do know this:
God has kept me away from sin. He loves me and wants to save me.

Okay thanks.
Please just pray that God will continue to soften my heart and I'll be open to listening to Him.
