Will you tell me a story? (all faiths encouraged to reply!)

I'd love to hear about how you faced a tragedy or fell to rock bottom, and how your faith pulled you through it.

I need some inspiration tonight. ...
TIA

  • I was suicidal, had no more hope for my life then becoming a prostitute or stripper and getting someone rich to provide for my lifebeing. I thought I was destined for hell, with no way out. But God pulled me out of there praise be to God! God also has savged me from my parent's I am a drug baby and was not well cared for. So that fact that I was born alive and am still alive today is a great miracle in itself same for my siblings :)

  • my hubby and I were on the brink of bitter divorce. I was in therapy and the day my therapist told me to change the locks on my door and not to let him back in someone knocked on my door and it was Jehovahs witnesses. I usually shoo them away but i was in such a horrible way that i thought it couldnt hurt. I listened and they happen to have literature on strengthening the family bond. soon i began taking bible studies and my entire life changed. I became stronger and slowly, my hubby changed as well. several years later and we are still together, he's studying the bible now and we are happier than we used to be. God is great.

  • what's wrong with works. people do it all the time. catholics have soup kitchens, you dont think God is looking at that and saying, that's a beautiful thing they are doing feeding the needy. If they want to go preaching, then let em. whats the big whoop.
