A year ago, when I was a teenager, I got a call from a woman in Australia who wanted to marry me.
I didn’t know the name of her husband, but he was her brother.
The phone call was my last in the world, and I couldn’t help but cry.
It was the first time in my life I cried so much.
But I had to make it work.
A year later, we had a child.
Josie and I have had a love story of our own since then.
We were both raised in a very strict religious household.
But as Josie grew older, she started to question things.
I remember thinking, why is she questioning this?
We are a very religious family, and we have always believed in God.
But what she was going through was so intense.
I had seen so many bad things happen to my family, but I never felt as if I could trust anyone, let alone someone I barely knew.
She started questioning everything.
I was still so young, and so naïve.
I had been told I needed to believe in Jesus to be a Christian, and that’s when I started questioning my own faith.
But after a while, I realised that if I was truly going to believe, I needed some help.
The hardest thing for me was to accept that it’s ok to question my beliefs, even if I don’t like them.
I have to accept, that I have questions, even when I know there are good answers to them.
It is so important to find those answers, and to work on them.
My first thought was, “What would Jesus say?”
But my answer to that was, I can’t change what God has created in my heart, even though he has given me the chance to do so.
The first time I questioned my faith, I had a very bad experience.
I thought I was being wrong, and my heart was broken.
It felt so horrible, so out of control.
At first, I was shocked, but as the years went by, I began to realise that I had doubts, and questions that weren’t answered by God.
When I found that Jesus was my Heavenly Father, I felt much more at peace.
It’s so important for me to get through this.
It’s not something that happens to everyone.
But when it does, I’m able to see that I was wrong, because I’m no longer afraid to say it.
The journey to my Heavenly Parents was so important, and has taught me so much, that it is now one of my biggest passions.
