I once was self-reliant. Now I am completely dependent on Him.
Over the past few years I have fallen madly in love with Jesus. It wasn’t until I came to Wheaton that I realized I needed such a savior. I knew about him but his story didn’t mean much to me, it didn’t really change who I was or the way I lived. Coming to Wheaton, I made my first real Christian friends. It was in seeing my peers chase after Christ, spending time daily in the word and realizing my own brokenness that I decided I had had enough of trying to do it on my own.
It was through the death of a friend and teammate that God showed me his comfort. It was through spending time abroad that God showed me what dependence looks like. It was through my friends at Wheaton and Mission Church that God showed me what community is. It was through my parents that God showed me his unconditional love. I didn’t understand grace until I needed it.
The life I want to live is one of complete dependence on Him. I want my story to be less about me and more about Jesus.
I am getting baptized today in response to all he’s done for me.
