Because I'm Not Alone!
I listen to WCIC via the Internet from Germany almost every week. It reminds me of the fact that I'm not alone, that He is with me, and that I'm not alone with my faith. It strengthens me, and it fills my life with Jesus!
I'm an 18-year-old girl form western Germany, and I never grew up with God. My parents reared me with Christian morals, and when I was small, we sometimes went to church on Christmas. But I could never fully grasp and understand the endless love of God. I felt alone.
When I grew older, I started wondering what I wanted my life to be like. I decided that I was more conservative than my classmates. I did not want to spend my life partying and having one boyfriend after the other.
My parents didn't really understand this. They supported me with everything I did, but they'd also have been okay with something else.
But I choose God. I wanted to live a life with His grace and love. I want to marry someone who sees this the same way, I want to raise my children with this faith, and I want to be surrounded by people who share my faith.
In the spring of 2012, I visted friends in Chillicothe, IL, and they finally supported my faith and took me with them to church. The family was always listening to WCIC, and I loved it so much that the first thing I did when I was home in Germany again was search for a way to keep listening to it! I feel so much better since I let God be part of my life! He has changed me!
I now try to go to church every Sunday, and I finally feel that this is the place where I belong!
