Since losing my mom on May 10th, I have been through very hard days. Losing your best friend in the world is one of the most devastating things. But a couple of good things have come of it. I have realized that life does go on after the death of a dear one. And I have gotten closer to God. I was very angry with Him at first because I don’t understand how He can just take someone from you without you getting to say goodbye. But as time goes on I know that I need Him in my life. God has His reasons for everything, and He will guide you in the right direction if you let him.
Going to church the past couple of months has really changed my life. Pastor Doug at Church on Fire is amazing. I always come out crying because what he tells us is so powerful. You can definitely tell that God has his hands on him.
Today I will be committing myself to God in front of my family and friends as I get baptized. If you live close and would like to come, I would love to see you there. It is being held at Lake Julie Ann. The address is 9300 West Road Cleves, Ohio 45002. It is at 7pm. I hope to see you there.
“But I am like an olive tree flourishing in the house of God; I trust in God’s unfailing love for ever and ever.”
