The Time I Renounced then Regained my Faith

Doubt and devotion often waged war in my mind. When you’ve been a Christian for as long as I have, you can start treating your faith more as a birthright than a blessing you didn’t deserve in the first place. Christianity has been so integral in all aspects of my life that it’s hard to imagine life without it. To some, that may come off as imprisonment. And at times, it did feel that way.
