I will never forget…the first time I lost myself
Shortly after God got my attention, something else got my attention. In a conversation with a guy who I had dated in high school, the topic of prayer came up. It freaked him out. He asked what had happened to me, when had I started believing all that “religious nonsense?” I was shocked, because during the time we had dated, I still “believed all that religious nonsense”– although I clearly did not display it. It also made me very sad, because I realized that I had lost myself. It was the first of many times over the past few years that I have felt that way. It’s amazing how easy it is to be swayed by those around you. I have learned the importance of community for this exact reason. My people are the best people, because they keep me true to myself.
