Story of a Not-So-Christian Christian

As a child, I'd occasionally attend a Christian church service. There was a simple, yet bold word that stood out: saved. As the pastor put being saved into more detail, I thought, "I believe in God, so I'm saved, right?"

As I was growing up, I began to sin and doubt more. I moved to a Christian school that had advanced education. There I began to learn more and more about God. I began to open my eyes and pray to God more often. I believed that being good would make my life less unfortunate. I guess, I didn't completely understand then. Life went on like this for about three years until school came.

As this school year started, I put in my effort to run as a secretary in the Student Council. To meet the requirements, I managed to changed my music taste. I began to listen to more Christian-like songs. As I was skimming through a list of songs, I came upon a very inspiring song; it reminded me so much of my past and struggles.

'I know I need to lift my eyes up
But I'm too weak
Life just won't let up
And I know that you can give me rest
So I cry out with all that I have left'

As I read the read the lyrics I couldn't help but cry. I needed God in my life. He's already done so much for me. I need rest. I prayed that God would just take control of my life; that he'd my guide and my friend. As my prayer came to it's end, my heart felt at peace. Now, I know that I'm not alone, and He'll always be there. I may not be perfect, but I know that Someone can accept me for who I am.
