My name is Katja. I am 20 years old and I am student of math.
I believed in God my whole life. I would talk with Him and ask for help when I needed it. I felt that God was around me— I thought I was a happy and strong person.
But while I was in college, I met a guy and we started dating. He didn’t believe in God. He actually hated Him because his parents had forced him to go to church and make sacraments.
I told him that I was a Christian, but he wanted to change my mind. At first I defended faith in the Lord, but slowly I started to believe his words. I finally decided that I didn’t need God in my life.
I didn’t talk with God or pray anymore. I totally forgot about Him.
It was then that my life started going downhill.
I became angry. I lost respect toward myself and others. My relatives told me that I was a completely different person, that they didn’t know me anymore and didn’t know how to help me.
Almost a year after we started dating, I knew that our relationship was not healthy and was going to be over really soon. But I was afraid to end it.
In my desperation, I finally remembered God.
I asked Him for help by sending me something— maybe only courage to tell my boyfriend that we couldn’t be together.
Two weeks later, 2 beautiful and amazing girls, Niki and Joy, came to my campus. They started asking me about God and Jesus. After 2 hours of talking, I remembered that I had asked God for help and I thanked Him. After that, I knew that this was a sign to be who I wanted to be, and that I needed to take responsibility and talk with my boyfriend.
I wanted to have a better future with God.
Since then I have wanted to hear more and more about God and Jesus. I am so happy that God sent Jesus to earth and that He died for ours sins.
Even when I forget about God, my sins are still forgiven.
I still don’t know what kind of plan the Lord has for me. But I know that whatever I will do in the future He will be with me; I just need to trust Him.
If you are reading this and for some reason you hate God, and you feel alone, know that He is constantly loving you. He will turn the situation around. Therefore, choose God as He chooses you.
It could be said that I grew up in the church, however, my heart was not entirely in it.
