Life As A Christian Female

Being a young adult, student, sister, barista, writer, and Christian, has a lot of responsibility to carry when all of those titles hold so much potential. Well, that’s who I am, those 6 words completely describe me as a person. I would like to share my journey as a Christian with all those other characteristics. 


How did I become so close to God? That’s a question I quite often ask myself. Well, let me give you a back story on what I’ve overcome. My twin brother and I were baptized Catholic because that was one thing our mother wanted to see us accomplish. After she passed away, I stopped going to Church and I didn’t think of putting myself in the religious category anymore I guess since I was only 4 at the time. 

It was around the age of 10 when I started thinking more about how I was created and the Earth is what it has become. I asked my family a lot of questions and my brother was the one to answer my questions. We decided to watch movies and talk a lot more about our beliefs and that is when I decided to take that into consideration. I was going through a hard time with not accepting my moms death and questioning my life. I never knew that one event could hurt me so bad. 

I started reading more of the Bible and watched more movies to learn more about what I believed in. I would say that becoming a Christian has changed my life completely because I don’t think I would be here today if it wasn’t for my trust in God. I learned that God put us on this Earth for a purpose and one day we will fulfill that purpose, some people fulfill that purpose earlier rather than later but that is okay because that was His Plan. 

The one thing that I could comprehend or accept why my mom got taken from me at such a young age, and why have these other things happened? Trusting God and learning more about who I am helped me accept the fact that this is my life. I was given this life for a reason and there is no way I am going to let anyone or anything tell me differently. I will fulfill my purpose one day, it could be tonight, tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, or in 80 years. That is for God to decide not me and I am happy to know that I have a purpose.

The advice I would give to people who are struggling with their religion is to trust. Trust in what you believe in and trust yourself. Always stay positive even when it gets hard, have TRUST.
