Christina spent most of her life feeling like God simply tolerated her. After years of indulging in self destructive behavior and putting up a facade, she found herself in a place willing to do anything to make the pain stop. One night, after deciding not to follow through on a plan to take her own life, she told God that He had to either show up or get out. The next day Christina walked into an unfamiliar church and met the God who had been trying to show her that He loved her and was pursuing her all along.
