Giving God Control

Jessie's Story

Jessie felt stuck where she was. After coming to LCBC she realized that her life had meaning, and there was a God who loved her.

Before coming to LCBC, my life felt stagnant. I felt like I had lost my purpose and drive in life. I spent so many years of my life trying to do good for others, but somewhere along the way I stopped caring about myself. I forgot that i was important too, and my confidence came close to being extinct from my life. Feeling lost, I began a game of “fake it or make it” every day. It became a vicious cycle.

"I felt loved for the first time in what seemed like a long time, and I couldn’t explain it, but I wanted to come back and learn more"

The first time I came to LCBC, as I heard the song “Good Good Father,” tears streamed down my face. I felt loved for the first time in what seemed like a long time, and I couldn’t explain it, but I wanted to come back and learn more. The weeks to follow felt like God was speaking directly to me through the speakers. I remember leaving church on Sundays in shock of what I’d heard–the messages felt like my life was being unfolded in front of me. I began to realize that I wasn’t alone, and I finally gave God control of my life.

Since then, I’ve come so far. I’m now a partner at LCBC through the Next Steps classes, and I’ve recently begun attending Starting Point. I’ve met people dealing with their own challenges and realized we are all on a journey in this life. With eternal love from God and support of the LCBC family, the pieces of my life are being placed back together. I know that I’m loved, believed in, and that I have a purpose. I know that God created me to be me.

My name is Jessie, and I’m a life changed by Christ.
