My Life Then & Now1
My name is Nick Ford, I am 15 years old and I live in Rutland MA. For those who don’t really know me I will give you a brief description of my life. I was born in Bryansk Russia and I was brought to an orphanage at a very young age. I was there until I was adopted by my parents who I live with today at 11 months. Throughout my life in the US and a member of the Ford family I have had some of the greatest experiences and met the greatest people who a lot of them are family. I also have had God in my life ever since 11 months, since I have been going to church and growing in my faith even today at Holden Chapel.
Now onto my life today, I go to Wachusett Regional High School, which is ok, but there are some things that do not display what God wants for his people like drugs,fighting (not so much), hate and selfishness. I try to stay away from the bad stuff of high school and participate in different opportunities like youth group. I also am a Civil Air Patrol cadet which is like a JROTC program. It is not an easy program, but the people who I serve with are some of the nicest people.
During my Civil Air Patrol service I attended a boot camp recently, which is called Encampment, which was up at Fort Devens. This I knew was not going to be easy, but I knew I had God and my teammates to help me and I was willing to help them at any time. During the week I struggled and saw my teammates struggle. My solution was to turn to God. God helped me through the tough times and it also helped others, I helped a friend who was homesick and struggling, by reading him the bible verse: Psalm 30:5 “For his anger is but a moment, and his favor is for a lifetime. Weeping may tarry for the night, but joy comes with the morning.”
God has helped me, but more importantly God helped me to help others. My life has been a great walk in faith and there are so many other stories, but I thought this one would be a good recent example. I would like to thank my loving parents Marilyn and Rick Ford for adopting me and giving me the greatest life I could ask for, and I thank God for bringing it all together and watching out for me.
