I grew up being extremely self-sufficient. My father passed away when I was a young child, making me the man of the household. Since then I’ve taken on that responsibility. As I grew up I did a lot of things for myself and became really independent.
In college, a hurricane went through Houston and my mom and sister were at the house by themselves — I was off at school. It was a tough time. They called and said the house had flooded.
They told me they would be all right, but I remember looking at myself and asking, “Why?”
Why was this going on? Why did my father pass away when I was a child? Why did I feel this way?
All of these “whys.” In asking that, I found out some things were just out of my control; I couldn’t do everything on my own. I thought that there had to be something bigger to make sense of what was happening in my life.
I remember sitting at chapel one day when God spoke to me.
It’s crazy how God will come to you even in the most small, subtle ways — maybe even a whisper. He told me “You don’t have to do this alone. You’re not by yourself.”
At that moment, I realized God had always been there — since I was a very small child even. Even though I thought I was doing things on my own, I couldn’t have done anything without Him.
When that happened, I knew God could only be my present hope. If I truly believed in Him, everything would take care of itself.
And it did.
All of a sudden, I noticed things were changing. I felt more of a peace within me and a peace about my situations. I learned and trusted God with everything I had and decided to give it all to 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.
