Recently I have made not a tough decision, but a long decision to reconnect with my faith. When I was younger I used to go to church every Sunday and be very involved in the "Kid Programs" at my church. Then I got involved with softball and almost forgot about church, my faith and God. I decided to reconnect after I have been through the hardest struggle of my life. Here is my story of my faith.
About a month ago my best friend, role model and my favorite person to talk sports with, passed away. My Dad is my hero and I thought everyday, and still continue to think, that I cannot move on with my life. I believe that I physically cannot get out of bed and live my life. Luckily, I have proved myself wrong everyday.
These past two weeks is when I finally made the decision to connect with my faith once more and have a better relationship with God. Mainly because of this pain that I have been going through and I need some reassurance in my life that everything will be okay. And I have found that reassurance within His word.
Since that terrible night, my life has been rocky, not "right", and just confusing. I have been looking for some consistency in my life and I am turning to God to take control of what I cannot control.
The reconnection of myself with my faith has temporarily healed my heart in a way I still feel the pain everyday, but know that through His word and, of course, the love of my family, that I will make it through this difficult time and grow into the young women that I know my father would want.
If you are ever questioning you faith, reach out to someone. Because that is the first step to a happy life.
