My faith

It is the most important thing in my life. It has shaped me to be the person I am today. I open up in my next book and show how much my faith has changed my life. Without my faith I do not believe I would be in the place I am right now in my life. I would be angry and bitter instead of forgiving and happy.

I don’t push my faith on others in my next book I just share how it transformed my life into the person I am today. It allowed me to look at the evil I witnessed in my life from a different perspective and not allow it to take another moment of my life but instead do something positive with it.

My morals and values come from my faith. I’ve made mistakes in the past in relationships with people who do not hold the same faith as me. Something I would never do again. It is by far the most important thing in my life and one I look for in a relationship.

As a baby I was baptized in a Catholic church. While I am not Catholic I am a Christian who has made the decision as an adult to be baptized. I have wanted to do this for many years now but there were things in my life I wanted to work through before going forward with this decision. Sunday I will be baptized at my church with hundreds of others in the lake at my church. My cousin Sabrina and I are being baptized together and we are both very excited about it. Being baptized is when you have come to a place in your life where you have repented your sins and believe with all of your heart in the Lord Jesus Christ. Something I have always believed but there was times in my life I doubted Jesus. Wondering why he wasn’t answering my prayers, wondering why he wasn’t saving me, wondering if he really existed. The truth was he was there all along just waiting to show me his purpose in my life and what he was going to show me through the pain I experienced. He has opened my eyes to so much and allowed me to let go of wanting control in my life and giving all my trust over to Him knowing he is always there.

I turn to Him every night asking that He protect the ones who showed me evil in my life. To shower his love on them and keep them from ever acting on Satan’s temptations. There is nothing I can describe in my life where I feel the most grateful to God who opened my eyes to his son Jesus and reminded me of His purpose dying on the cross for our sins and the sins of those who have hurt us. I feel the Holy Spirit working in my life every day. It is how I learned to live for today.
