Hey everyone :] A long time ago, I used to be a self-righteous person. "I'm such a better person then you," blah blah blah. But God has been wonderful to me. Especially since September 2009. Since then, God has called me into the ministry. Especially to minister to teen girls. I have a speech impediment. You have no idea how much I was ridiculed since age 6. Not kidding. It hurts when you overhear someone saying that I'm a retard, or that they don't even understand me. I've been both sexually AND physically abused. And everything was swept under the rug. I had to deal with people who didn't believe me, who didn't care, who blamed me. It was a horrible experience. But lately, I've been trying not to think of myself as a "victim." There's a scripture that I live by. I don't remember where it was located, but it said that we go through things so that we may be able to minister to thsoe who are going through the same thing. I love that scripture, because it's so true. Do I still have scars? Of course. Many of them. But since September, I asked for a peace from God. Satan can give us false peace. But I asked God to give me HIS peace. And since then, God has given me such a peace and I've been happier. It's one amazing feeling. Anyways, I'm katie. And I'm 20, soon to be 21. I do go to a community college, but will be attending a Christian school, Elim. I try to love people as best as I can. I can't rely on myself, so I rely on God's love. I think of all my enemies, and God says, "But I love them." And then I try to love them, as well! Sorry that this is long. But hopefully I get to know you guys!
