Hey guys! I am glad I came across this forum and hope to share experiences and stories with all of you guys. I have been religious (raised catholic) all my life, but only recently welcomed Jesus into my life (over the past 2 years or so). While doing so, I started distancing myself from the Catholic Church. However, that doesn't mean that I don't agree with most of their views, I just feel as if God is so much bigger and so much more loving than that. Or maybe it's the fact that church is quite boring where I am located (Germany). I feel as if the church I go to is not as embracing as I wish it was. It's very stiff and professional. Idk. I Iike it when the preacher cracks a joke from time to time...hahhaa. Okay, that was the most random introduction ever, but what I'm most looking forward to is sharing stories with you guys. Plus, I am working hard on improving myself. I wish I was as good a Christian as I intend to be, but I still have bad thoughts from time to time, I curse (which I am a trying to control) and I recently gave up smoking. I know that Jesus is the path. I know that God will lead me to a better life. I just give in sometimes and I need to stop doing that.
