I grew up in church, but, it was not until I really felt the presence of God that I made the commitment to follow Christ. The commitment to follow the Lord changed my life. Making the decision was a turning point in my life. Matthew 16:24 says, “Then Jesus told his disciples, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.”” The story of my life is not mine.

...me that you cannot rewind time; you can just change your future.
As a child, I would have never imagined I would be who or where I am today. Ecclesiastes 3:1 states, “To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven.” Everything I have and will experience on Earth has a purpose. I may not understand what the purpose is when it is happening but, I know I will come out of it stronger. I thank God for my life and that through everything I have been through, he has never forsaken me. God has been by my side every step of this journey people call life. I am so thankful for every experience I have had throughout my life, the good and the bad. I know my life is just beginning and there will be a lot more turning points in my life, but I have learned throughout all of it, that the Lord will never leave or forsaken me even in the worst of storms.
