Personal Essay

On a warm June day, my life was about to change forever. I was attending a Christian camp. On the last day of camp, I vividly remember the speaker telling us how to recieve the free gift of eternal life. If we wanted to receive Christ as Lord of our lives, he would lead us in prayer, and we could confess our sins. That very moment, I felt a tugging at my heart and I heard myself repeating the speaker’s words. I prayed to God and confessed that I was a sinner, undeserving of eternal life. I told God that I believed Jesus died for our sins. I asked the Lord Jesus to come in to my life, take control of my life, forgive my sins and save me. I repented of my sins and placed my trust in Him for my salvation. I accepted the free gift of eternal life, and from that moment my life has changed.

Peace and happiness have continued to grow in my life with God’s love and encouragement. God continues to work in my life, changing my heart, and helping me. My relationship with God is grounded in His Word. My prayer life is abundant. I have complete assurance of His love, grace, and mercy.

Shortly after I accepted Christ, I sensed God calling me into the ministry. After much conviction by the Holy Spirit, I surrendered my life to the counseling ministry. Thank you for your prayers and support.
