“Jesus said to him:  ‘You shall love the Lord your God with your whole heart, with your whole soul, and with all your mind.’  This is the greatest and first commandment.  The second is like it:  ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’” Matthew 22:37-39

Because of alcohol abuse in my home, I was resentful of other people’s easier lives.  I was depressed, angry and couldn’t count on adults.  I believed that no one could love the true me.  When my 18 year old brother died, I feared other loved ones would die.
I was 17 when my personal relationship with Jesus began the night my brother was buried.  After crying for five hours, I only wanted to die to be out of the pain.  I cried from my heart, “What kind of God kills people you love?”  I stopped crying; a peace washed over me.  I knew it was God.  He revealed that He wasn’t that kind of God, and that life is loving Him above all and loving people.

Life took on a new perspective.  Everything that I thought was so important was second to cherishing people, especially while they are here with you.  Struggling for several years, I prayed, “I don’t know how to get closer to You, Lord, but please help.”  He answered that prayer through WCF, where I discovered God spoke to me through His Word.  I had decided to follow Jesus . . . no turning back.
