Having seen more of the world and having met such a variety of people, I see that my type of story is actually the more rare one. Now you hear a lot of stories of how people have been into drugs, sex, pornography, etc, and then God saved them and their lives have drastically changed. In this day and age, my story is more rare, but not at all less filled with grace. As much as anyone, I am saved by grace and it has been by grace that I can know Jesus Christ and that He has preserved me from the plots of the devil. It is by grace that I am continually growing in the knowledge of God and stay humble.
2 And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.3 For I say, through the grace given to me, to everyone who is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he ought to think, but to think soberly, as God has dealt to each one a measure of faith.
