VV Baptism Testimonies

Ghent Range

There isn't much to say about me because I grew up in a loving Christian home all my life, I always had God in my life and would come to church very often I always felt like I was close to God. But as I continued to get older, I started to drift little by little away from God. Everyday I would try to put him first through my day, but I found myself hitting a wall in my heart. Drifting away from the way God wanted me to live. If I were to be giving a time for when I started to feel like it was too hard to follow God, it would be my senior year in high school. With my life picking up pace, It felt harder to keep up with God. School got hard, so I spent much less time thinking about God. And I stopped going to the churches high school services because I did not feel a motivation for me to go. I would go to the ABS groups on Wednesday, and the Seven service on Sunday's. But I never felt like I was getting anything out of it. I would try harder and harder to listen to the message and I would find myself getting board. So I tried turning myself around toward the end of the year of school and ABS. And I never felt better and closer to God than I have in a long time. Not to mention I connected with a girl a year back and she has been leading me to be better with God, and I have been doing the same for her. And also I am joining the United States Marine Corps and I just want all others to know so I can be watched over my friends and family while I go into boot camp. Many things have been happening and I've just been pushing through it because I've felt God right next to me. I think I needed to lose God in order to find him again. I am ready to make the next step in my relationship with him.
