God working through Prayer
I am thirteen years old, so naturally people say that my life is merely beginning. But I've found that through going through school, especially junior high, you can come across many life changing experiences. Now, like many teengagers across the country, I struggle with acne. I hate it so much sumtimes i hate looking in the mirror. I try to stick to my routine, but with my ever-changing schedule, it can sometimes be a challenge. Because of these breakouts, I've been made fun of a lot in school.It really hurts sometimes, knowing that kids are staring at it and judging me. Judging me for not who I truly am, but for the struggles I have on the outside. Now I am a Roman Catholic, and I am taught to pray to God and tell him of my troubles. This I have often found conforting, knowing that whatever it is, he will accept me and love me. Now one day i came home from school on the verge of crying. My friend was ganging up on me with some other girls in my class, and saying so many mean things to hurt me. I came home that night not knowing what to do or say. But then i remembered that God is always there. So i turned to my crucifix, and started praying. I prayed that each day my burden would get lighter, and that soon I would have true friends that would stand by me. As soon as I said "Amen", I immedietly felt better, and going into school the next day wasnt nearly as hard. I remember thinking that God really does work in miraculous ways, and that maybe one day if I keep believing I will meet my best of friends, Jesus.
