Being a Christian for me is to love God with all my heart, my soul and obeying His will. Only by His grace, He loves me for who I am and has given me everything I ever needed. I have been blessed with great friends who I love very much and who love me, but at the end of the day when I feel lonely and depressed, God is there to comfort me and hold me in His arms.
I have cerebral palsy, which means I use a wheelchair and my speech is hard to understand, but God has given me everything. I really believe it was God’s plan to make me to have cerebral palsy. Now I don’t know why people suffer with illness, disability, abuse or why some people get healed and other people don’t. All I know is God is by my side, every moment of every day.
I think my relationship with God is very real. God has a hard time with me as l am always questioning Him. God is my best friend. We need to be open and honest with God, if we can’t do this with Him, who can we be open with? God is big enough to take all our pain and hurts. I have been brought up to be very independent, too independent at times, so I like to think I can do everything in my own strength. Then when things go wrong God pulls me back to him and shows me that I am nothing without him.
