From Ben, 16…
I have been a Christian since I was born, but it felt more like a label than a religion. I never felt an actual connection with God until I prayed with Catherine. Life has been pretty hard so far with depression and school and family relationships. I always felt alone, and I was comfortable with it. I’ve been on depression medication for almost two years now, and it’s been a real struggle. I was always afraid of what may happen when I died. I always felt as if I would be even more alone than before. I have always been skeptical of religion.
However, I had a real connection with God, and it was all thanks to Catherine. She offered to pray with me and at first I felt a little ridiculous, but I soon felt something else. I felt warm, reassured. I knew I wasn’t alone, and I soon felt ridiculous not for praying, but for being afraid. My whole perspective has changed. I have a stronger bond with my dad and sister, and I have an even stronger bond with the Lord. I pray every night, and I no longer feel like I’m talking to myself. Someone is listening, and it feels so good. I’m no longer depressed, and I always have someone to listen, someone to care for me and watch over me. My whole life has changed, and I know I am in charge. With a little help from God, anything is possible. I am confident for my future. I know that someone is watching over me. God has played a huge role in my life, even when I didn’t see him. I am never alone, and I will always have the Lord to give me strength.
