I’m so thankful that God has brought me to Vision of Hope. It seems like I learn something new about God, His Word or myself everyday. I grew up in a Christian home, but I hadn’t really ever applied the things I was taught, but now that I’m away from all the distractions of the world, I’m starting to see changes now that my focus is on growing in Christ’s likeness. The changes that are taking place are ones that I never thought would be possible and I was right because I was trying to do it on my own. God is teaching me about what love is and how wrong my perspective was about it. I’ve always thought of love as a works program and I’m so thankful that God doesn’t work like that. His grace is so much greater than my sins, and just the thought of that overwhelms me. I’m so excited about all that God has taught me and I’m looking forward to seeing what else He plans to teach me while I’m here. When I return home, I want to continue living to glorify God and live in the identity that Christ gave me!
