In the many years of my life, I have accepted that I have committed truancy. However, it never involved my schools.I am referring to truancy regarding God. I did not understand the importance of God until some years ago. My mother abandoned me. As for my father, I never mattered. Many days and nights;I felt lost and confused. I needed protection and guidance. So,on a hot spring morning, I walked to church. I immediately felt accomplished. I became active in prayer and in bible study. Many weeks later, I stopped going to church. Suddenly, my life took an unexpected turn. I skipped God's lessons and plans for me. My life worsened by the minute. I did not understandthe cause of the conflicts occurring in my life. I continued to avoid God. I then became to understand that I cannot control my own life. God was teaching me many things but,I decided to skip his class. Hoping for an A+, the letter F became my best friend. Why? When a student does not attend class, he or she will miss something important about that subject. I would walk past God's life lessons: Room 1. Though, I would enter trouble: Room 000. That's the feeling I had constantly;emptiness. The walk of life is harder than I thought. I never used common sense. I thought I could never learn from God again. Yet again, I was wrong. He welcomed me back with warm arms, compassion and love. I stopped dodging Him. I devoted myself back to Our Lord. Whether you skip rocks or lessons, both have the same result. You skip opportunities,lessons and valuable understanding. If you run away from God, always remember he loves you. Also, truancy is illegal .So
