Hey! You should check out a book called I Am Remnant by Pat Schatzline. It's a great book that really helps push you to be "set apart" and live for Christ in such a perverse and changing generation. I'm so glad you made a video about finding Jesus. I wish more YouTubers would do that. You guys all have such a huge platform to reach people, use it. :)

You know what’s really cool? Pat Schatzline is my Youth Pastor’s mentor so he comes to our church sometimes and speaks. Really cool dude! I’ve been meaning to read that book for a while! Now that you’ve mentioned it, I’ll make sure to grab it. Thanks :)

did you ever go through a time when you lost your faith and kind of stopped trusting in God? I'm going through that right now and want to get back on the right track.

Yes I have! That’s when I started smoking weed A LOT and really lost track of reality. I knew God was there but just chose to ignore him and take my own route. It ended up eating away at me and the high never satistifed me. It darkened my life and made it suck. Everything sucked. I hated it and KNEW that God was waiting for me to turn back to him.

What it comes down to is surrendering. We must fully repent ( turn from our sins ) and surrender it all unto God. It’s amazing because God knows everything we’ve done, everything we’re doing, and everything we will do. He understands how we feel and knows when we’re hurting. He wants us to commit our sins to him and ask for forgiveness. Once you lay it all down before him, he will begin to repair you. 

I put my foot down one day and told God I was sick of the sinful life I was living. I began to seek him, read my bible, and change the way I lived. And since that day, September 1st 2013, he’s been doing such an amazing work in my life and I couldn’t be more stoked. The more I read my bible everyday, the more I learn about how incredible Jesus is and how much I want my life to be like his! I live constantly surrendering to him. EVERY SINGLE DAY. When I sin, I give it to God, ask for forgiveness, and try my hardest to NEVER turn back to it. God is so good and he loves you SO MUCH. turn to him and he’ll fix you up :)

Praying for you!

I've been depressed and stressed for the longest time, I was wondering if you could list some bible verses that would be helpful. Thank you so much, God bless you.

James 1:2-4

Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.

Lean upon your only source of strength during the hardest times. Tell him what you’re dealing with and stressed about. God always comes through. He’ll never leave you hanging. These are the times you truly get built up because you can only rely on your faith. Praying for you :)
