MY NAME IS JULIAN ALONSO CORREA AND THIS IS MY WORLD. WHEN I WAS TEN YEARS OF AGE MY PARENTS HAD TO DIVORCE DUE TO MY FATHER’S ALCOHOLISM.

I SAW THE CONSEQUENCES THAT ALCOHOL BROUGHT TO A FAMILY. I BEGAN TO GROW UP WITH LOW SELF-ESTEEM BECAUSE I HAD NO ONE AT MY SIDE TO TELL ME, “IN LIFE THERE ARE BETTER THINGS, YOU CAN BE SOMETHING MORE.” AND THAT BEGAN TO CREATE A WOUND IN MY HEART BECAUSE I DIDN’T HAVE MY FATHER LIKE A CHILD DESIRES TO. I LACKED THAT MOTIVATION IN MY LIFE.

THE DECISIONS THAT THEY MADE ENDED UP AFFECTING ME. I NEVER THOUGHT THAT A SEPARATION WOULD BE SO, SO PAINFUL.

I STARTED READING ABOUT WHAT WE CALL NEW AGE OR “NUEVA ERA.” I DIDN’T WORK FOR ME BECAUSE I NEVER FOUND A GOD WHO IS A FATHER.

THE TEAM THAT I PLAYED IN MADE A TRIP TO EUROPE. IT WAS A TRIP THAT SUDDENLY TOOK ME OUT OF MY NATURAL SURROUNDINGS. I REMEMBER THAT MY TRAINER WOULD MENTION JESUS A LOT AND SEEMED TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH GOD THAT WAS VERY PARTICULAR. HE SPOKE OF A GOD WHO WAS LIKE A FATHER, A GOD WHO IS A FATHER. OUR TRAINER HAD AN OLD BIBLE HE WOULD READ, AND I WAS GREATLY IMPACTED BY HOW GOD SPOKE TO HIM.

I SAID, WELL IF GOD SPEAKS IN THIS WAY AND IF GOD SPEAKS TO HIM IN THIS MANNER, IN ONE WAY OR ANOTHER HE HAS TO SPEAK TO ME. WHEN WE RETURNED FROM EUROPE I REALIZED THAT, THAT I SHOULD RISK A LITTLE MORE TO GET TO KNOW THAT FATHER HE SPOKE OF.

THAT FATHER THAT ONE ALWAYS LONGS TO HAVE BEGAN TO EXIST. HE WAS THERE TO AFFIRM ME, TO TELL ME “YOU CAN DO IT, YOU ARE A CHAMPION.”

I ENCOUNTERED THE SAVIOR, WITH JESUS, AND I WAS ABLE TO RECOGNIZE THAT JESUS CHALLENGED ME TO LIVE A LIFE FAR FROM THE CROWD. I BEGAN TO HAVE A RELATIONSHIP WITH HIM; I STARTED TO TALK TO HIM JUST AS I AM. AND I STARTED TO SAY, “WELL LORD, I GIVE YOU MY DREAMS, I GIVE YOU ALL THAT I AM.”

MY SELF-ESTEEM IS DIFFERENT; I CAN SAY THAT MY SELF-ESTEEM IS BASED ON GOD. AND IT IS SECURE IN WHAT HE SAYS ABOUT ME.

I CAME TO JESUS IN SEARCH OF A FATHER BUT FAR BEYOND THAT I FOUND A SAVIOR. THERE IS A QUOTE FROM WILLIAM WALLACE THAT SAY, “EVERY MAN DIES BUT NOT EVERY MAN REALLY LIVES.” I CAN CHANGE THAT TODAY AND I CAN SAY THAT ALL THE YOUNG PEOPLE LIVE, BUT NOT ALL OF THEM TRULY LIVE. I CAN KNOW THAT TODAY WITH JESUS I AM TRULY LIVING AND I DON’T KNOW HOW MANY YEARS I WILL LIVE BUT I DO KNOW HOW I WILL LIVE THEM. I’M GOING TO LIVE A DIFFERENT WAY, WITH A STRONG TESTIMONY IN A WAY IN WHICH I CAN FIND TRUE FREEDOM WITHOUT CONFORMING TO THE NORM AND BEING PART OF THE CROWD. I HAVE A FATHER THAT AFFIRMS ME AND GIVES ME THE STRENGTH TO KEEP GOING.
