Forever growing with God

by Ruby
(Vic, Australia)

When I was first enrolled for Primary school I was taken to a Catholic local school near home. Neither my mum or dad had any connection to the catholic community which means that I couldn't do communion or any of the other stuff. This lead me to being bullied by my peers and ditched by all of my 'friends'. I felt as though believing in God was like selling your soul to a evil master because he never did anything for me and only made my life difficult so I turned my back on God and began to believe in Evolution. Then in grade 4 I moved to another school in the area but it was a christian school. I was really scared that the religion side of the school would be the same as my past school but how wrong I was. When I had my first RE class I realized that it was actually fun, we watched a silly little kids show called veggie tales but it really lifted my grudge against God. Slowly but surely I began to like God but then I was faced with another problem. I didn't know how to get close to God. Then I met a girl who is now my best friend, she asked me to come to her youth group which I thought was going to be really daggy but I still went. I loved the atmosphere at youth I felt as though I was accepted straight away. From then on my faith in God has grown but it defiantly wasn't easy. I have been heart broken and hurt by friends like any normal teen but somehow I found the way to get through that with God. Just before I finsh up I would like to mention that I now have nothing against the Catholic Church but praise it for showing so many people the way to God. I guess it wasn't for me.
