As a child I had no real knowledge of God. A few lessons at school and that was it. I was given a Bible at 11 but hardly looked at it. God was remote. I wasn’t even sure He was real. I had the usual opinions of Christianity. I thought it was just going to church and I didn’t want that.

 

After stubbornly saying no to God so many times, I finally gave up the fight at 31 and said yes. For a long time I found it hard to accept why God would want to know me. It’s not until I look back on my life and all the things I’ve done that I can see He was there all the time anyway, even when I gave Him no thought at all.

 

But I found God has a plan and I’m part of it. How amazing is that?
