I am a college student who is very grateful to the Lord for all the amazing things that He has done in my life. Since I was a young child I used to visit church frequently and listen to the word of God, but I did not have a close relationship with Him, nor did I fully committed my life all to Him. As a teenager, I started living a life that I knew was not pleasant to God; I was living in sin dragged for many of the things that this world offers. But I was never truly happy. I remember that I was happy one day and then be terribly sad on the next. I did not understand that I could never find true happiness living in sin away from God. But I was about to discover that even though I was a sinner God never stopped showing His love for me, He never stopped caring for me. I was not satisfied with anything in my life; I felt that everything was falling apart. But it was just when I needed Him the most that He came to my rescue. I remember one specific day when I broke in tears because I felt that I could not take it to any more. I can not describe what I felt inside of me, I was broken in pieces. But God's mercy is forever and He spoke to my heart and told me how much He loved me and did not want me to be suffering any longer. The first thing I did was to ask Him to forgive me and I repented for all the bad things I was doing. I asked God to forgive me because even though I knew His word I had turned my back on Him. At that moment I knew that God was real and that He really is merciful because even though I ignored Him for all those years He never stopped loving me and caring for me. From that moment on I committed my life all to Jesus. Now I am truthfully happy and I love everyday of my life because I am trusting God and asking Him to guide me in every aspect of my life.
