I grew up in a Christian home and went to church weekly, but I was living as though God did not exist. My choices were selfish – using drugs, alcohol, and relationships to relieve deep seated anger from my past. Exhausted from my rebellious behavior, my parents brought me to Life Challenge.
Many changes have occurred since my arrival at Life Challenge. I am now willing to listen to those who want to help me, including my parents. In addition, I have found that I have a great love to serve others.
God has begun to heal that anger from past hurts. A Bible verse I learned in class spoke directly to my need: “Do not repay evil with evil…repay evil with blessing, because to this you were called so that you may inherit a blessing.” (IPet.3:9)
Most importantly, I have a closer relationship with Jesus Christ. I’m learning to trust him and to know that He will never leave me.
