God has a reason for everything, the past few months I’ve had some rough stuff going on but what really gets me through it is knowing the there is a reason and God has a plan for me. If you are patient, you may see the reasons or you may never know why, just know that there is a why and that all these tough situations can help you grow in your faith. The reason may be simple or extremely complex just know for everything big or little there is one.

My story begins before I was born, my parents were going to have a baby before my older sister was born. He/she died before it was born, it was hard on my parents.

Next my older sister was born and a year and 11 months later I was born. But something was wrong, I had a really bad breathing problem, I had to stay in the hospital for an extra three days. This problem continued through preschool and I grew out of it right before kindergarden.

This was hard for me. I was a non-christian k-3 grade and I truly accepted Christ in 4th grade. It was mainly because I need Him. My cousin had attempted killing herself. That was hard on me because this was a first, I’ve been in private school my whole life, and I have been sheltered from the bad things in the world.

And just to add to the horrible things my grandfather had taken a really bad fall and passed away. At the end of 5th grade my family thought God was calling us to move, but he told us to stay after a few months we had to homeschool for those months, but sadly a teacher at the private school I had gone to before got sick with cancer, and my mother is currently substituting for her.

I am currently attending a Christian School, but it is possible I’m not going to be back there next year. I need prayers for strength. For if we do not go back to this school my life will be turned upside down.

Well when I was little my mom and dad were having problems but tired to work them out because of me. The big thing is that my dad went to Prison when I had just turned 4 years old and is still in there today. Its nothing but God that has kept me going strong.

My mom has been having heart surgeries since she was 16 and has had to been shocked back into life when she gave birth. Her next surgery is September 19 2014. She is replacing her pacemaker battery and getting an ablation. I feel The Lord is on our side.

Persevere – keep on moving through a tough situation.

Example: Last year my grandfather died to lung cancer three months before my great grandmother died to brain loss. Sadly, she didn’t even know her grandsons name. Even through my tough situation, I need to move on and know that God desires me. He allowed this happen for a reason, and I know that they are in a better place.

I am sure my grandfather and great grandmother accepted God into his and her life and will know more about God than any person on earth and will have a better time than on earth.

The bible has burned a way into the center of my heart and will stay there like a tattoo.

my life wasn’t going well I was stressed out and depressed. my parents had gotten divorced, my dad moved away, and we had money problems. there was nothing I could do to fix it. I was getting bullied and I just wanted to stay home and not face the world.

I had always heard about hazardous. I wasn’t old enough to go yet but I went every time when I got to 6th grade. I never really connected with god. I thought there was no solution to my problems. nobody could fix it, it’s just the way it went but when I went to hazardous for the first time, I felt like everything completely changed.

I felt connected with god. hazardous isn’t just a place to have fun with your friends and dance around, there’s so much more to it. I was depressed for a long time but I reached out to God and He helped me
