When I was little, I got saved, then I got afraid I wasn't saved, so I must have prayed the salvation prayer about 50 times when I was young. I believed in Jesus from the earliest memories I have. I read my Bible as a child. A person who reminds me of me as a child is my granddaughter, who is doing the same thing, my son said. My belief and salvation has been the most important thing to me my whole life. I am 100 percent sure I would not be alive still if it wasn't for being saved and for my faith in Jesus. Thru EVERYTHING...person above me...because if you are a Christian you will go thru trials, and I don't mean little ones either. Life shaking ones, I think. I am glad to say my son is a Christian. There was really nothing more important to me than that. I pray for other family members that they too will be saved. Life is very difficult, and I think without faith life is completely impossible. There was a time in 1991 that I reprayed the prayer of salvation just because I was terrified of what was happening around me. I have no faith in myself, but I have all faith in Jesus that in the end I will be with Him forever in heaven.
