My mom introduced me to reading the bible when I was about six. The stories were so beautiful and I just soaked myself in them. I remember a guy in my school telling me about Christ and praying with me to accept Jesus, but the implication of that never really sunk in. Fast forward to a year later, I got this deep longing and heaviness in my heart and I knew I wanted more of something, and that something was Jesus. So on Saturday, September 19, 1998 at about 20:00 hrs, I went into one of the rooms in the house, knelt on a mat and said the three words that forever changed my life, “Lord, save me.” And since then, through the ups and downs, Jesus has been my Awesome Shepherd and Lord.
