The other day I got asked by someone, "why do you believe in God? It's all a bunch of crap anyways". So on here I will answer why I believe in my God.
I grew up without a dad, which is hard, but my God blessed me with the strongest and most loving mother and at the age of 10, a wonderful step dad. Because my mom got married i gained a new brother and sister, one of which just had a baby, so now I'm an aunt. My brother married one of the biggest support factors in my life. God took that bad situation and gave me more than I could ever ask for or deserve.
At the end of my junior year I didn't make the choir I wanted to make and I was crushed. This year God gave me and my friends the courage to fight for what our choir deserves and for the first time ever, Sirens will have their own show. Sirens has also become some of my closest friends and I consider them all a second family. They have encouraged me and supported me through good and bad days. God took my broken heart and flooded all the cracks with love and support.
My last example involves this summer. My first night of summer was spent at a pool at one in the morning, bawling my eyes out till I couldn't breathe anymore because of a breakup. I had just gotten out of an emotionally abusive relationship that I had been in for over a year. In the middle of the summer a friend set me up with a boy from school who I now get to call my sweet boyfriend. God took my broken heart and let me fix it, and gave me someone who is more than I could ever ask for.
This is why I believe in the strength and love and forgiveness. God took my brokenness and gave me more love than I could have ever asked for.
