How Much God Can Change You

Hello my name is Brady. I am Jodi's eldest son. I thought that I should let you know some stuff about me first. I am 16, am in high school and I try to live my life for God showin Him to everyone, everywhere I go.  God has had a plan for me. That plan started on Christmas day in the year of 1993. He ended up showing me His light this past summer. I never thought I would change as much as I did. I used to live life for myself. Why not? It was my life right? I believe in God but if He forgives us why try to be like Him. Right? But even with it being my life. I needed to find myself. What I was supposed to do. I was scheduled to go on a mission trip with many other Christians, might I say extremely strong Christians. Recently I had been always wanting to follow myself and not seen any reason I would have fun serving others. That's before I met all these wonderful people that changed my life. The one that had the biggest impact on my change of life was a friend named Angel. She was 17 and always found fun in everything she did. I didn't understand how but she did. She had so little with her and her family but her and them all found a way to give, not materials, but time and God's love. They showed me what I could find in God. I was sent down to help them but I can never repay them for how much they helped me. They have changed my life forever and whenever I have a choice of putting others or me first I think of what she would do.   Now my life has changed more than I can imagine. I have better friends. Do better in school. I live my life for God. I have a better life and it's all because I think of others first and try to show God, in anyway possible, from wearing a Christian shirt to telling a random person about God. That is why we are here to give God glory. The only reason I have learned this is because of a few people. Their names are God, Jodi Anderson, Steve Anderson, Bryan Anderson, Smitty, Angel Hernandez, Uncle Jay B and many others who went to Guatemala with me and my sister, or lived there. Thank you all soooooo much! I love you all no matter what happens! :)

Great post, Brady. It is truly amazing how God has designed that we can find life by losing it in service and self-denial (Matthew 16:24-25). I love you, too.
