  • I wouldn't say it was anything drastic or what anyone would consider miraculous, but for me, I had to seek Him out. Even though I didn't believe, I honestly wanted to. I envied people I saw who had such firm faith and belief in God. I was afraid of death, and wanted reassurance that there was something else out there. For a long time, I sought out some kind of "proof", but I had no results. It wasn't until I was able to truly humble myself and pray for an answer that I received what I was looking for. It's hard to pray when you don't know if God is there or not, so at first I was just going through the motions, but eventually He revealed Himself to me in my heart and I knew, without a doubt, that He was real and that He lives.
    Faith precedes miracles. The Lord will not reveal Himself to anyone who is not seeking Him.

  • I was an atheist just about all my life. I never really had faith as a kid and I just didn't understand people who did.

    On the night my mother died, God spoke to me.

    Now I'm a Pagan.
