no matter how much I pushed him away God always had a hold of me
During my teenage years I started heading along the wrong path, getting involved with people and things that were no good for me. I spent many years far from God, rejecting and even denying his existence.
Several times during my life I lost all hope feeling I had no reason to continue, but with what at the time was described as a miracle I am still here.
Only more recently have I realised that no matter how much I pushed him away God always had a hold of me. Having Jesus in my life has helped me release the feelings of anger and resentment, replacing them with forgiveness and understanding.
I am grateful to God for his love and forgiveness, his overwhelming ability to care for me when I didn’t care about myself. I am thankful to everyone at TBC helping me rediscover my faith,
assisting me with putting the past, the shame and the fears behind me, providing me with a sense of belonging.
