"Once I gave my life to Christ, I never looked back. Now, I follow His will instead of my own. Following God didn’t fix all of my problems, but letting Him into my life as given me a way to deal with my problems."

My life was being controlled by anxiety when I reached out to my close friend who also happened to be a Christian. I was struggling in my relationship and was doubting my purpose. My friend had never been pushy about Jesus, but she had always been loving and encouraging.

She sent me the song "Here As In Heaven" to listen to when my anxiety became too overwhelming. I listened in the car and began to cry. Immediately, I looked up Elevation Church. I couldn’t describe how I felt, only that I needed more of it.

When I checked out Elevation on Facebook, I watched the sermon "The Power Of The Pull.” I felt that God was pulling me closer to Him. I started watching every sermon online so that I could learn more about God and what it meant to follow Him.

I was still shy about my faith and wasn’t willing to share my love of Christ with the world, but I slowly learned that I needed to surrender to Him entirely.

Once I gave my life to Christ, I never looked back. Now, I follow His will instead of my own. Following God didn’t fix all of my problems, but letting Him into my life as given me a way to deal with my problems.

Now, I can say I have found true joy in Him.

I am now a social media volunteer on the Orange Team as a way to share God’s message with others. Never have I felt more like the person God has called me to be.
