I was raised to believe in God by my parents. They taught me how to read the bible and to pray. When I was around 12, I decided to form a personal relationship with God through Jesus Christ. But when I became an adult, say around 30, I veered away from that path, because I felt it was too stringent and I was missing out on "the fun". Eventually, I've come back to God and I am reading the bible and living a christian life. There is nothing more comforting and safe than knowing our heavenly Father watches over me and that He actually cares. I could write a book about the incredible things He has done in my life both big and small, but I digress. I just want to say, learn to talk to your heavenly Father, and your life will never, ever be the same.
Have a great day!!!
