My Testimony - December 13th 2014, 02:16 PM

Ok I thought I would just tell you guys cus I've never told anyone before. I haven't been brought up in a Christian family, the only way I really learned about God was through SU at school or online. I had never really prayed before, but then something happened to me at home and my whole life fell apart, so I turned to religion as it was the only way for me to not feel alone. I prayed all the time, asking God for help, I didn't know who God was or wether or not anyone was actually listening, but I prayed anyway, hoping it would solve all my problems. But it didn't. One night, I had made up my mind to kill myself. I had it all planned I had written out a suicide and everything. I decided to wait until everyone went to bed, and go outside to a little alleyway and cut my wrists so that none of my family would find my body. I had also planned on sending my friends each a text saying goodbye and letting them know that I loved them. It had completely made up my mind and I felt at peace with my decision, and like nothing could make me change it. I had an exam and lots of homework due the next day but I didn't revise or do my homeworks cus I knew I would be dead. I just lay waiting for the right time to sneak out of the house. And I know, if you're not a Christian you won't believe what I'm about to tell you, but suddenly I changed my mind. I felt a presence, I felt someone telling me not to do it, that I was worth something. I truly thought that this was God speaking to me, and I didn't kill myself. I was able to view the world and everything in it, in a whole different perspective. I felt like my life had been complete darkness and this was a moment of light. I now know that I'm not alone, and that God has a purpose for me. Things are rough at home again, but when I feel alone and like I'm not worth living, I remember that God loves me, and to him, I'm worth living.

Wow,
I'm so happy for you.

and btw if you post you might want to consider doing it in pharagrhaps. For me it is really difficult to read a taext without spaces in between. And if I have it there will probably be someone else with that problemj too.


Helping others sometimes makes it easier to feel good about yourself and help yourself.

So PM me if You want.

Thats fantastic. People might say its not a miracle, but think about it... depressed, suicidal people don't just suddenly make a switch. I'd say its miraculous.
