I hated being in a Christian family.  It just wasn’t fair…this God my parents believed in was out to ruin my fun. I felt that being a Christian was just a list of rules – of do’s and don’ts. 

Then one day (30 years ago!) I heard these words from the bible:

 ”You do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? You are a mist that appears for a little while and then vanishes.”  James Ch 4 v 14 

Even then (at 17 years of age) I realised that my life was just a moment in time and I didn’t want to spend an eternity (that’s the time we have left once we are dead!) without God.  I knew that Jesus had made a way for me to have a relationship with Him.

 

What have I learned? God loves me so much he wants the very best for me!

He doesn’t want to spoil my fun; he wants to protect me from the things that will destroy my life. And with Jesus in my life – it’s amazing!
