I was always raised as a Christian, my mom took us to church every Sunday and I even went to a Christian elementary school for a while. But around 8th grade I didn't feel connected to God anymore. I went down a bad path of sin for a long time. Eventually I got my act together, graduated college, and started working in my career field in some amazing jobs. But I ruined every opportunity I was given and my life was back on the steady decline. I lost everything. I thought God forgot about me.
A couple of months ago I went with my mom to a church service, like I would every now and then, but on this occasion God softened my heart and I heard him calling me back to him. I cried and completely submitted my life and soul to him, admitting that I had ruined everything without him and I couldn't do it with out him any more. Since then I have felt the presence of God so strongly in my life. He has blessed me and given me a peace and joy that I have never felt before. I want to be baptized to publicly announce my commitment to God and that i will never walk away from him again.
