My story

by Amber

My name is Amber. I am 13 years old. I am just a teen and I have a long life ahead of me. I have done a lot of things that I regret. I am going in the 8th grade. My 6th grade year I was quiet and didn't get in trouble. Well,my 7th grade year went down hill. First semester I stayed out of trouble and everything, but second semester it got bad. I started hanging out with the wrong people, cursing, smoking, drinking, lunch detention, getting suspended, and it all tore me away from God. My behavior got real bad about two months ago when I started dating a bad boy who was a year in a half older than me. He pressured me into kissing him and wanted more. He was my first love, first kiss, and first guy to break my heart. I am glad I am not with him anymore. He broke up with me and then got together with a girl who offered more. I still loved him when school got out, but I also had gotten back into the routine of going to church when we broke up. Over church camp I opened up to someone and told him about everything. He told me I was getting back on the right track and was proud. When he said that to me something hit me that said that I was changing and all that stuff was the old Amber. After I got home from church camp I started reading the bible on a daily basis and going to church every Sunday and Wednesday. Then, the other day when I was sitting in my room I got a text that said that my ex and his new girlfriend had sex earlier that day. When I heard that I was disappointed that he did that, but I was relieved that I wasn't with him because I wasn't going to offer that to him. I realized that I am over him and God can help me through anything. I am going to have to stop hanging around some kids because they are a bad influence. It will be hard,but it's for the best I think. I just want to thank God for everything he has helped me through and thank him for helping me get back on track. I never realized how much God loved us until today. I love God with all my heart and more than words can explain.
