Hello, my name is Colton Jansen. I am the author and editor of LivingForJesus.com. I am a son of two wonderful parents, and a brother to three…make that four amazing siblings (my eldest brother just married). I am also a blog/web designer (Blogit Studios). But above all, I am a lover and worshipper of Jesus Christ. God has done so much in my life and I know I owe Him so much.
I personally was raised in the church, so I’ve always believed in God, but I didn’t always know Him. When I was growing up, I really struggled with acceptance. I always felt I had to earn things, such as love, from others, especially God. This was a hard burden to carry, because no matter how hard I tried, I always failed. I was never good enough. Over the course of my life though, I began to learn about the amazing love of God. I learned that God’s love is not one that is conditional; on the contrary, it is an unconditional love full of grace. The day I truly realized this, I was set free. God’s love has allowed me to shed off the burden of my failures, and begin to live a life as a man not trying to earn the love of his God and his family, but rather to live a life as to thank them for it.
So now I am a man who is doing his best to pursue God’s desire for his life. Though I still fall, the difference is that I know a hand of love and grace is there to help me back up.
