My Conversion Story-Merete

I have not always been a Christian. I was raised in a family where God was not something that was talked about. I was bullied at school, and I had a hard time fitting in. I never had anywhere to be safe. My mother was a good and kind person, but my father was not a good person. He was bad. My siblings got thrown out of the home, at a young age.

I realized I needed Jesus and received Him into my life when, I was watching a reality series called Ice Road Truckers. There was a Christian trucker that at first annoyed me, oh boy his going to pray again. Then I became aware of how he prayed, and what he was praying about. It was down to earth and like Jesus was sitting there right beside him. It amazed me, and I started to look forward to seeing him in the show. Jesus came slowly into my life, kind of sneaking in the back door. Untill I received him and prayed the sinner’s prayer. Confessing my sins, and opening my heart to Jesus and admitting that I need him in my life.

The biggest change I have noticed in my life is: Now I have a father that loves me, and I never had that. I asked for a man to come into my life. One that would accept me for who I am, and truly love me. The men that I had been with before were not in it for love. I met him and fell in love right away. It felt like I had come home. We got engaged and we got married. We lived in an apartment building where there was a lot of drugs and alcohol. I got more and more sick; my body got more and more drained of energy. I sat up all night, and I barely got any sleep. Then I prayed for help to get out and to find something better for us. A few moths later, I got a loan in a bank, and we were able to buy our one house. Thank you, Jesus for that.

My life is better, happier and calmer. It doesn’t mean that all my problems are gone, but I have Jesus I can rely on. The pressure to perform isn’t there anymore, I can give it all to Jesus.
