ENGLISH 2 COMPOSITION NANCYCABRERA THE DAY I DECIDED TO CHANGE MY LIFE The day I decided to change my life was the day I called upon the Lord. I was ready to take my precious life, in my room stretched against the wall with a knife in my hands ready to slit my wrist. I was crying intensely, and as I was trying to a Voice reminded me that I had 3 Boys who needed me , I started to cry and Called on Jesus to please help me. There is a point in life where we all decided to change many can find the way out.
Others aren’t so fortunate; they never call upon the only one who can save their soul and life. My life hasn’t been easy there were many times in my life where I know the Lord was there to save me. Countless times I was in Near death Experiences where from My Car catching on Fire as I was driving, to Car Accidents where my Car flipped and thought I was never going to make it. Reality was I was headed down the wrong Road and all the while God was trying to catch my attention.
Many times I did what I wanted, lived how I wanted, and never took time to truly seek him or know him. But change and a complete 360 change cannot occur unless we surrender and acknowledge our maker. I remember that my life was a wreck from Drinking and Partying Every Single Night, to having countless Relations with different partners not really ever finding love but just heart breaks. I had no goals in my life and thought life was just one great party.
To make money I sold Drugs and escorted myself as a means to get by with fast money, I realized that this world sends this message to world yet it was illegal. My life was headed down the path that many are on now and I job knowing the Lord is to tell them there is hop found in the Lord Jesus. See before changing my life I had seeked Religion and other ways I thought could lead me to God but never did from Catholic to Jehovah Witness to Wiccan nothing could connect me or lead me to the true source of life.
But then when I called upon him He answered. My life totally changed after my Ex-boyfriend got arrested from Selling Drugs, God had a plan for me because I was in New York at the time this happened. When I got back his Probation was to attend a Church Ministry Barbeque where they Spoke and preached about Jesus Christ. I had never heard the Gospel this way and for the first time I truly felt the Presence and Love of God, that Day they asked me if I wanted to receive Jesus as my Lord and Savior and I said yes.
From that Day forward my life changed completely not only did I stop doing drugs, drinking, partying and having sex with every guy that was attractive to me but God finally started speaking to me, leading me to get my life in order the bible which once was not understandable I finally could read and he spoke to me through it. To many they don’t realize that change comes from the heart and that we all need to find the missing piece of our life which is God to find true change.
