My Path to God

God has been working in amazing ways in my life recently.  When I came to Ashland University in 2011, I decided to give my life over to Christ.  I wanted to stop going through the motions and actually develop a relationship with God.  Once I got involved in The Well, that wasn’t hard to do.  I was surrounded by a community of brothers and sisters that were so accepting, loving and willing to help me develop a relationship with God. 

They prayed over me and supported me through one of my biggest challenges.  As a three-sport athlete, it is hard to hear that you will need a series of surgeries that will prevent you from playing sports for a while.  It is also hard to sit on the sidelines in a wheelchair and watch your teammates play.  Going into my third surgery, which was basically a last ditch effort to fix my feet, I was confident that I would be healed by God this time because I trusted him now more than ever.  My faith had grown so much over the first year I was at AU because of what I was taught at the Well and in small group. My family in Christ from The Well prayed over me a few days before surgery asking God to heal me because we knew he had the power to do that. 

Since my surgery in May, I am now able to walk and even run a mile and play basketball without much pain! God has healed me and it is an incredible feeling.  I had grown so much in my faith and had God work so much in my heart that I wanted to get baptized.  I was able to get baptized at The Well with three of my sisters in Christ on November 1, 2012!  It was an amazing experience and I was excited that the community that had provided me with so much support was there to share that experience with me!  I am continuing to grow and I am going on my first mission trip to serve the Lord this spring with some of my family from The Well.

God does work in amazing ways. Some call it will, some call it luck, for some its positive attitude; all these references point to God's grace at the end, and I see all these elements in your story. You are blessed!
