My name is Sarah. I gave my life to Christ on July 11th, 2012. My parents raised me up in this church and I’m so grateful to God for everything that He’s spared me from. Even though I grew up in church, I didn’t have a personal relationship with Him. My parents were saved and I had many examples of people who were saved as well. I knew what it meant to be saved, I knew who Jesus was, and I knew that He died on the cross for my sins – but I didn’t know Him. I never engaged in drugs, alcohol, or sexual immorality but I was still living in sin. I had forsaken the grace that God was willing to pour out on my life because I wanted to live the life that I thought was right for me. In my first two years of high school, my family went through some hard times and it was then that I realized that God was the only thing in this life that never changed. He was always faithful and always provided. I had to put my faith and my trust in Him like never before. It was in that storm of life that I realized what a great God was in control and I chose to repent of everything I ever did wrong. God’s redeeming mercy and love washed away every sin as if it never were there. I am now 19 years old and I can only look forward to what God is going to do as I continue to live my life every day for His glory.
