My testimony Hallalujah!
(Kingston Ontario Canada)
Well all the way up to about 14 years of age I was in church I believed in God but I wouldn't exacly say I had a relationship with the him,
But anyways when I was about 14 I moved away from my parents and lived with my aunt and uncles house which was like 14-16 hour drive from where my Mom and Dad lived but yeah my aunt and uncle isn't really big on church and they didn't make me go they made school more important and yeah I pretty much stopped going to church and got into the wrong crowd at school and you can probably guess what happened then,.... I started doing drugs and stuff and skipping school sometimes, also the whole time I was away from God and was into the wrong crowd I was miserable on the inside but on the outside I tried to pretend I had everything together. I was looking for something but I was spiritually blind at the time so I never thought that Jesus would be that something I was looking for, but I continued in this mess for about 2 years and I notice now when I look back I was getting worse and worse in depression I also had thoughts of suicide, But when I was about 15-16 my mom and dad moved up to Ontario and I moved in with them and my mom was praying for me the whole time i'm guessing lol
By the way if you're a mom or a dad reading this right now and your son or daughter has backsliding or doesn't know Jesus don't stop praying for them! don't get discouraged because trust me i'm living proof that prayer is powerful and if it wasn't for people praying for me I would not be here right now typing this message! I could very well be out with friends partying or it's possible that I could even be dead at this very moment lost for eternity!, but yeah back to the testimony ^^
this one friday night my brother went to a youth group and he said he really liked it and asked me if I wanted to go at first I didn't want to but then my mom kept asking and telling me to go so I went lol, When I got there I met a guy named Jesse which now is one of my closest friends but yeah he came up to me and we became friends and then he told me he wanted to learn how to breakdance and God told him to start learning that night so he obeyed! and the funny thing is I've always wanted to learn to the breakdance so yeah I watched him the first night and then I went home and started practicing at home and throughout the whole week I practiced then I kept going back to youth for breakdancing mostly, but every week I went I got closer and closer to God then eventually I went to a service and got convicted big time! lol but then I pretty much gave my life to him with hesitation but yeah I've just been growing stronger, and stronger in him since then and it's the best thing that has EVER HAPPENED TO ME! I just want to thank you Jesus for everything you've done for me! :) God bless everyone!
