I questioned my faith for a long time not understanding why I was going through all that I had endured as a child and even as an adult. I asked God, "What can possibly be so wrong with me that you are allowing all that is and has been happening to me?" Many tears fell until one day, I was talking to someone. She asked to hear my story. When I told her, she looked at me and told me that I was blessed. I didn't understand. She explained that my story empowered her to be strong and keep faith. Because if I am still standing, smiling, willing to help that shows that the power of God is great. Her words made me stop and see that He did all that He did to not only have a message for me to share but the strength to stand strong. So with that, I decided to return to where church always felt like home. So it led me back to The Bayou. I thank The Bayou Church or always making me feel loved and like family.
