you must be extremely retarded to drive around at 75mph at night on a county road especially with another person in the car. You should be banned from ever driving again.

You're a fucking idiot. First, learn how to read. Second, it's insignificant shits like you who should have no place in life (let alone the capability to type what you half-ass thought up). Third, you should be banned from ever breathing again.

Listen degenerate, if you took your precious time and actually read what the OP said, he wasnt the driver.



Here I am, overwhelmed with joy and love from reading a few stories....then comes you. Im curious, do you make an effort to look yourself in the mirror every morning, tell yourself "Im the biggest peice of shit there is, time to prove it" then before going to bed at night, take one last look and say "mission accomplished"? You're a tool so keep living up to your description and expectactions.


I digress...
Too bad I'm in a pissy mood now for the next 10 mins. But anywho, OP; thank you for sharing and im glad everyone (including pets) were okay. And Jonny, although not your story, thank you for posting. I was centered for the time, then I skimmed back over and read the dumbass's comment.

OP, me personaly... Ive always been an open-minded person (with some exceptions if there is an IDIOT involved). Growing up I always told myself, that if there really was a God, I wouldn't have to verbally talk to him, cause he should be able to hear my thoughts. Then about 2 and half years ago, I had an occurence at a 4way stop where I had an overwhelming feeling to keep an eye on the driver to the left who was approaching. It was 3 am in the morning but i still did the complete stop thing then pull through. needless to say, Im half way thru the intersection and I notice the SUV to my left never even slowed down for the sign. I had to floor and he missed me by inches. Ever since, my curiousity has gotten the best of me in trying to figure out why I had this unshakable feeling to keep an eye on that guy. I know I have a guardian angel watching out for as well as big guns upstairs. I receive subtle signs from time to time, things like hearing almost a whispering in my ear, and that lets me know to either do something different or something is up. I am very grateful and thankful that He has played an active role in my life, even if at times I dont act like it. Again, thank you

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
I would love to hear from you on this.hf


I love wildlife of all kinds and God knows this in me, my first encounter of wildlife and God was at 12. I was riding in a car with my cousin and he was a reckless teen, it was a time of no airbags or seat belts, he was traveling on a small county road about 75mph, when he thinks it would be so cool to drive without lights on as it was dark, my Spirit had me say this "turn the lights on now there may be a cow in the road" just as he pulled on the lights, there was a big black cow, I told my sister in back to lay down and grab seat and I grabbed my seat and prayed. Well, we hit the cow and a cement drain car was totaled and we had to crawl out a window. We all walked away unhurt and God has blessed me with never hitting another animal , as I cried for days for that cow. If we had not turned lights on it would have been head on with cow and I cant imagine any of us living.


The reason I write this now, I see so many people struggling and they post those struggles even here on GLP, I will share what I was shown today, what happens when you leave the Hand of God.

I have 2 dogs I love dearly , I walk them 2x everyday and in the last 8 months God has put me through training with this.
Once the small dog went out in the lake to far and got tired(dogs will drown) it was to far for me to get him, so I prayed God please bring him back safe and the story of Sodom and Gomorrah came to me , so I turned away and even though I wanted to look back , I placed my faith in God
When it was time to go home I turned and my dog was at my feet wagging his tail( I got weak).
So this grew my faith, so each time I walk them , I lift them up to God and we all return together safe(I hate leashes).

Well I bought this book about numbers in the Bible and had started reading it but noticed some errors, did not think to much about it, but when my dogs did not return today , I ask myself what have I done, I went and got the book and threw it away and ask for forgiveness for getting off the path, and in about 3 minutes my dogs came back.

I know some of you will not understand , but ask yourself how do I listen to God and am I. We all have different Spirits and Souls, he will speak to you if you listen and reward you when you do. God Bless

When I go on my walks above my home, close to the Appalachian trail in N.C., I hear God whispering in the trees, I see him steering the clouds, I feel his warmpth and love in the sun, I see all of Gods creation and Majesty and it makes me weak. Praise God in the name of Jesus!

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??

Things could not have been worse. There I was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean feeling like no one knew me or loved me. In a world of 5 billion people I felt all alone... and I was. I was at the end of my rope. I hadn't the strength to go on. Suicide was not an option. I firmly believed there was a way to be happy but what was it? Loneliness was ruining my days while nightmares were stealing my nights. My heart was sick; my brain fried. The guilt of so many stupid choices was making it difficult for me to hold my head up high. Like a directionless zombie I staggered through my empty days. After twenty-two years of a meaningless existence and agonizing pain I sobbed like a broken child. I wept like never ever before. I had heard of Jesus and believed he exists but did not know how to trust my life to him. I said, “Oh Lord, I promise I’ll be good, please take away this loneliness.” I collapsed onto the floor weeping, my face buried in my arm. My eyes were tightly shut but I could see Light. I saw myself through the eyes of Jesus Christ. He felt an overwhelming compassion for this young man lying helplessly on the floor. He descended to touch me. I struggled to get up, making it only to my knees. He surrounded me. His Holy Spirit began to penetrate my rib cage. I raised my arms and looked from side to side. I could not see anything but felt Jesus. The terrible, debilitating loneliness was washing away. I knew in an instant that Jesus loved me too!, that his power is real, and that heaven is a reality. I understood that this is the "Stuff" that raises people from death. God has forgiven me! Suddenly, my life had meaning! Great sorrow was being replaced by joy. I understood that this Holy Spirit is the One that brings eternal life.

Jesus is a Presence, seperate and apart from anything or anyone I had ever experienced. Like millions of other people I experienced the love of Jesus Christ because I called out to him in truth. My life would never be the same again. This whole revelation was the beginning of a Higher Education for me.

One of the first things I did after this miraculous experience from God was to purchase a Bible. I read about the life of Jesus and how he loved all people. What he did for me - and countless others like me - he also did for people in Palestine two thousand years ago. Jesus walked throughout the land proclaiming the Good News. This good news is the fact that we are all part of God’s creation and that there is a purpose to our lives. God loves us all and sent his son to show us the way to heaven. Like God himself, heaven is a holy place. Those who turn from sin and accept Jesus will receive eternal life. Those who stubbornly choose their own selfish, self centered life style will never know the wonderful things God has prepared for them.

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
Your testimony is carnal-motivated rationalization.

If God has Called your heart, you aren't paying attention, much less responded.


If you are Born-Again, God HAS your attention; constantly. Living For-HIM is like that. You KNOW HIM, HIS Voice, Smell, Feel; better than you know that of your parents.


Jesus was Born and Gave HIS Life To Enable your Coming Unto The Father. If The Father Has Called your heart, can you witness/testify that you've Been In HIS Presence? Have you told HIM that you Trust HIM Fully with every aspect of your life and want only to do HIS Will?

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
I was working at a sewing factory years ago and sat next to a Christian woman each day. Each day she told me about God and Jesus, and all the stories in the bible. I had always believed in God, but was not brought up in church. I prayed and asked God for a bible, and that Christmas my aunt, who was mentally handicapped, gave me The Living Bible. I started reading it everyday on my lunch break, because this woman had made it so interesting. then I read Great Late Planet Earth and realized Jesus was who he said he was and the bible was real and He is alive. I will never forget the moment I was saved. several years later, I received the baptism in the Holy Spirit, it was like blinders were removed from my spiritual eyes. For those who are searching for truth, humbly ask God and He will answer. Jesus is the only Truth.

 Quoting: Once4All


Very true.

Yes, the power of God IS real. If you have encountered Him, then you will understand.

Now, concerning my own story, I don't want to go into too much detail, but the Turin shroud you have as your avatar played some part in it, I believe, at least in an indirect or circumstantial way.

Many years ago, I was low in my life. I mean very low. Desperate and helpless. I had been praying very earnestly for maybe a week or more. My life was broken. And at that time I came across an article about the Turin shroud, with a picture of it, in a Readers Digest magazine.

So, all this time I was praying, and day after day I would keep this page about the shroud open, looking at it, and wondering...I was sort of fixated on it..as though it maybe represented some kind of glimmer of hope that there might be something else...that Jesus might be real and able to do things in our life today after all.

Anyway, after a week or two of this intense praying, I was listening to some lay preacher about 10 o clock one morning, and I heard him say something about a 'slippery slope' and how we need to get off it, with God's help.

At that instant, God hit me like a freight train. Instantly. He was there. He was REAL! I walked away from that preacher as though I was walking on air. And I went straight back to the Readers Digest article and looked at the picture of the shroud. I looked at the shroud, and my mind was racing. Then I looked up, and Jesus was there! He was there, right beside me. I didn't see Him with my physical eyes. I saw Him with my spiritual eyes. But He was there, for real. More clear and stronger than the room I was sitting in. I looked down at the picture again, and remember thinking this must be real...there must be something in all this...not that I knew whether or not the shroud was real, but I knew at that instant that Jesus was real. So I looked up again, and Jesus was still there. Several times I looked at the picture and then at Jesus. He just stood there silently. It was like looking at a 'before and after' picture kind of thing. He was alive! He was alive, and He was right there with me. And He was all powerful. I could barely take it in. It was staggering! The shroud represented death, and yet Jesus was right here, right now...and He was alive!

That is a true story. That's exactly what I experienced.

I don't know if the shroud is genuine or not. I don't believe that they have proven it to be fake. In fact, I was just re-watching a video of it the other day, see below. Not a new video, it was made a while ago. I don't know if the shroud is genuine, but I do know what it represents...and that is that Jesus died, and then He rose up again from the dead. He did. It's true. And I am a witness to this fact. If I said it wasn't true, then I would be lying.

Anyway, here is the vid:

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
Not my own story, but something I was just reading online:
..........................................................



"I was walking around in a Big Bazar store shopping, when I saw a Cashier talking to a boy couldn't have been more than 5 or 6 years old..

The Cashier said, 'I'm sorry, but you don't have enough money to buy this doll. Then the little boy turned to the cashier and asked: are you sure I don't have enough money?''

The cashier counted his cash once again and replied: ''You know that you don't have enough money to buy the doll, my dear.'' The little boy was still holding the doll in his hand.

Finally, I walked toward him and I asked him who he wished to give this doll to. 'It's the doll that my sister loved most and wanted so much . I wanted to Gift her for her BIRTHDAY.

I have to give the doll to my mummy so that she can give it to my sister when she goes there.' His eyes were so sad while saying this. 'My Sister has gone to be with God.. Daddy says that Mummy is going to see God very soon too, so I thought that she could take the doll with her to give it to my sister...''

My heart nearly stopped. The little boy looked up at me and said: 'I told daddy to tell mummy not to go yet. I need her to wait until I come back from the mall.' Then he showed me a very nice photo of him where he was laughing. He then told me 'I want mummy to take my picture with her so my sister won't forget me.' 'I love my mummy and I wish she doesn't have to leave me, but daddy says that she has to go to be with my little sister.' Then he looked again at the doll with sad eyes, very quietly..

I quickly reached for my wallet and said to the boy. 'Suppose we check again, just in case you do have enough money for the doll?''

'OK' he said, 'I hope I do have enough.' I added some of my money to his with out him seeing and we started to count it. There was enough for the doll and even some spare money.

The little boy said: 'Thank you God for giving me enough money!'

Then he looked at me and added, 'I asked last night before I went to sleep for God to make sure I had enough money to buy this doll, so that mummy could give It to my sister. He heard me!'' 'I also wanted to have enough money to buy a white rose for my mummy, but I didn't dare to ask God for too much. But He gave me enough to buy the doll and a white rose. My mummy loves white roses.'

I finished my shopping in a totally different state from when I started. I couldn't get the little boy out of my mind.

Then I remembered a local news paper article two days ago, which mentioned a drunk man in a truck, who hit a car occupied by a young woman and a little girl. The little girl died right away, and the mother was left in a critical state. The family had to decide whether to pull the plug on the life-sustaining machine, because the young woman would not be able to recover from the coma. Was this the family of the little boy?

Two days after this encounter with the little boy, I read in the news paper that the young woman had passed away.. I couldn't stop myself as I bought a bunch of white roses and I went to the funeral home where the body of the young woman was exposed for people to see and make last wishes before her burial.

She was there, in her coffin, holding a beautiful white rose in her hand with the photo of the little boy and the doll placed over her chest. I left the place, teary-eyed, feeling that my life had been changed for ever...

The love that the little boy had for his mother and his sister is still, to this day, hard to imagine. And in a fraction of a second, a drunk driver had taken all this away from him.

Please DO NOT DRINK & DRIVE.

For those who prefer to think that God is not watching over us.... go ahead and ignore this. For the rest of us..... pass this on.

The value of a man or woman resides in what he or she gives, not in what they are capable of receiving."

This is why you and Goofy claim to be Christians. They've been making up crap stories like this since I was a kid in the fifties, and I'm sure longer than that.
Why didn't God heal the sister AND the mommy? Now that would have been the right thing to do.

Both of you have nothing but your feelings to go on.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 34711581


Im not seeing a connection with this story and them claiming to be Christians. Stories like these (made up or not) touch people and in some cases, change lives. Why do things happen the way they do and not another? Everything happens for a reason. If someone close to me passed away, yea I would be sad. But after a little time I would accept that they were in a better place and there was a reason for it happeneing. The drunk driver in the story, who knows, maybe came out unscathed but changed his life around after the incident. Maybe he became a speaker against drunk driving and is reminded of his horrible actions everytime he gives a speech. Maybe the driver thinks about the momand sister these days, more that the little boy. So why didn't God save them both, because he knew the boy could handle it and grow up to be a respectable man, they guy who gave the boy money made a believer out of him if he wasnt before, and the driver who was leading a crappy life before the accident...was saved by his two angels. Again, everything happens for a reason, whether we are ever made aware of this reason or not.

As far as feelings, its the lack there of that has made Earth a shithole and literally a hell on earth; and it is with feelings that not only will there be a change on this planet, but actions are based on feelings even if no rational thinking took place in between.

Im curious, what is it that you go on. Because I let my feelings guide me, but never blindly

Many years ago, I was low in my life. I mean very low. Desperate and helpless. I had been praying very earnestly for maybe a week or more. My life was broken. And at that time I came across an article about the Turin shroud, with a picture of it, in a Readers Digest magazine.

So, all this time I was praying, and day after day I would keep this page about the shroud open, looking at it, and wondering...I was sort of fixated on it..as though it maybe represented some kind of glimmer of hope that there might be something else...that Jesus might be real and able to do things in our life today after all.

Anyway, after a week or two of this intense praying, I was listening to some lay preacher about 10 o clock one morning, and I heard him say something about a 'slippery slope' and how we need to get off it, with God's help.

At that instant, God hit me like a freight train. Instantly. He was there. He was REAL! I walked away from that preacher as though I was walking on air. And I went straight back to the Readers Digest article and looked at the picture of the shroud. I looked at the shroud, and my mind was racing. Then I looked up, and Jesus was there! He was there, right beside me. I didn't see Him with my physical eyes. I saw Him with my spiritual eyes. But He was there, for real. More clear and stronger than the room I was sitting in. I looked down at the picture again, and remember thinking this must be real...there must be something in all this...not that I knew whether or not the shroud was real, but I knew at that instant that Jesus was real. So I looked up again, and Jesus was still there. Several times I looked at the picture and then at Jesus. He just stood there silently. It was like looking at a 'before and after' picture kind of thing. He was alive! He was alive, and He was right there with me. And He was all powerful. I could barely take it in. It was staggering! The shroud represented death, and yet Jesus was right here, right now...and He was alive!

That is a true story. That's exactly what I experienced.

I don't know if the shroud is genuine or not. I don't believe that they have proven it to be fake. In fact, I was just re-watching a video of it the other day, see below. Not a new video, it was made a while ago. I don't know if the shroud is genuine, but I do know what it represents...and that is that Jesus died, and then He rose up again from the dead. He did. It's true. And I am a witness to this fact. If I said it wasn't true, then I would be lying.

Anyway, here is the vid:

you must be extremely retarded to drive around at 75mph at night on a county road especially with another person in the car. You should be banned from ever driving again.

You're a fucking idiot. First, learn how to read. Second, it's insignificant shits like you who should have no place in life (let alone the capability to type what you half-ass thought up). Third, you should be banned from ever breathing again.

Listen degenerate, if you took your precious time and actually read what the OP said, he wasnt the driver.



Here I am, overwhelmed with joy and love from reading a few stories....then comes you. Im curious, do you make an effort to look yourself in the mirror every morning, tell yourself "Im the biggest peice of shit there is, time to prove it" then before going to bed at night, take one last look and say "mission accomplished"? You're a tool so keep living up to your description and expectactions.


I digress...
Too bad I'm in a pissy mood now for the next 10 mins. But anywho, OP; thank you for sharing and im glad everyone (including pets) were okay. And Jonny, although not your story, thank you for posting. I was centered for the time, then I skimmed back over and read the dumbass's comment.

OP, me personaly... Ive always been an open-minded person (with some exceptions if there is an IDIOT involved). Growing up I always told myself, that if there really was a God, I wouldn't have to verbally talk to him, cause he should be able to hear my thoughts. Then about 2 and half years ago, I had an occurence at a 4way stop where I had an overwhelming feeling to keep an eye on the driver to the left who was approaching. It was 3 am in the morning but i still did the complete stop thing then pull through. needless to say, Im half way thru the intersection and I notice the SUV to my left never even slowed down for the sign. I had to floor and he missed me by inches. Ever since, my curiousity has gotten the best of me in trying to figure out why I had this unshakable feeling to keep an eye on that guy. I know I have a guardian angel watching out for as well as big guns upstairs. I receive subtle signs from time to time, things like hearing almost a whispering in my ear, and that lets me know to either do something different or something is up. I am very grateful and thankful that He has played an active role in my life, even if at times I dont act like it. Again, thank you

I'm concerned OP by this statement of yours. Especially considering that you have stated this previously
"I know some of you will not understand , but ask yourself how do I listen to God and am I

The "awakening" that you see in the world is not by the Holy Spirit. It is a group rising up that have accepted a false Jesus, often referring to themselves as "I am", believing that they are immortal and divine, and all is "one". Everything capturing them are false signs and wonders, and their vain imaginations. Experiences are rated highly and they reject the Jesus Christ who said "Blessed are those who believe without seeing".

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??

Things could not have been worse. There I was in the middle of the Pacific Ocean feeling like no one knew me or loved me. In a world of 5 billion people I felt all alone... and I was. I was at the end of my rope. I hadn't the strength to go on. Suicide was not an option. I firmly believed there was a way to be happy but what was it? Loneliness was ruining my days while nightmares were stealing my nights. My heart was sick; my brain fried. The guilt of so many stupid choices was making it difficult for me to hold my head up high. Like a directionless zombie I staggered through my empty days. After twenty-two years of a meaningless existence and agonizing pain I sobbed like a broken child. I wept like never ever before. I had heard of Jesus and believed he exists but did not know how to trust my life to him. I said, “Oh Lord, I promise I’ll be good, please take away this loneliness.” I collapsed onto the floor weeping, my face buried in my arm. My eyes were tightly shut but I could see Light. I saw myself through the eyes of Jesus Christ. He felt an overwhelming compassion for this young man lying helplessly on the floor. He descended to touch me. I struggled to get up, making it only to my knees. He surrounded me. His Holy Spirit began to penetrate my rib cage. I raised my arms and looked from side to side. I could not see anything but felt Jesus. The terrible, debilitating loneliness was washing away. I knew in an instant that Jesus loved me too!, that his power is real, and that heaven is a reality. I understood that this is the "Stuff" that raises people from death. God has forgiven me! Suddenly, my life had meaning! Great sorrow was being replaced by joy. I understood that this Holy Spirit is the One that brings eternal life.

Jesus is a Presence, seperate and apart from anything or anyone I had ever experienced. Like millions of other people I experienced the love of Jesus Christ because I called out to him in truth. My life would never be the same again. This whole revelation was the beginning of a Higher Education for me.

One of the first things I did after this miraculous experience from God was to purchase a Bible. I read about the life of Jesus and how he loved all people. What he did for me - and countless others like me - he also did for people in Palestine two thousand years ago. Jesus walked throughout the land proclaiming the Good News. This good news is the fact that we are all part of God’s creation and that there is a purpose to our lives. God loves us all and sent his son to show us the way to heaven. Like God himself, heaven is a holy place. Those who turn from sin and accept Jesus will receive eternal life. Those who stubbornly choose their own selfish, self centered life style will never know the wonderful things God has prepared for them.

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
Part 1

I always went too Church as a little boy, I went with my mom and sisters while dad stayed at home. My sisters wore dresses and I wore a shirt and tie. Back then all Church was about was running around and playing with the other kid's.

But I lost track of the time. Years passed and God was officially booted from my mind and life. I was having way too much fun with the drugs and partying throughout high school.

But then things fell apart. Fast.

I just turned 17 When I accepted God into my life I was literally on the floor shaking and crying I yelled out "YOU WIN! WHAT DO YOU WANT FROM ME?" and no response. But instead of giving up I prayed and prayed and prayed. I was in a deep rut and the only thing I could do was pray and pray some more.

I prayed constantly for a year, I went for long hikes through the wood's and bike rides too see the sunrise every morning so I could be alone and maybe see God. This went on for another year.

I forgot about God again. Nope. No answered prayers, still in a rut, still agnostic at best. So I got a new job started pulling myself together I thought I could do it on my own and I did. When I was 19 I was working in the oil patch, making tons of money, money most people wouldn't know what too do with. And I quickly found drugs again.

I said a prayer once again I said "Lord show me a vision" then maybe I will have faith.

'He' says, this way, and then This Way and then THIS WAY and then 'THIS WAY'.
Do not worry it will happen at the right time, in the right place and with the right people.
In these last days of the 'perfection' reincarnation 'HE' is CONTROLLING everything from the position of each hair on your head. You will ALL graduate but you need to go through the last of the things that you have never experienced before. The 'ELDERS' will be the ones like you who lost everything and hence are now masters of themselves because they 'need' nothing.
Believe in 'HIM' as 'HE' believes in you.

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
Part 2

Sometime during August of that year the leaves were browning and it was warm outside. I had the perfect day, sunshine, paycheck, took my sister out for lunch at an expensive restaurant. Then later I got a text for some drugs. So I went and bought some and returned home and promptly ingested the drug.

I suddenly didn't feel so good. I felt sick. My skin turned white and I grew cold. I thought too lay in bed and I was trying too puke into the garbage but I couldn't. And I felt this coldness slowly engulf me. The coldness got more and more intense but rather slowly, then the coldness turned too darkness and then it turned too pure fear. I closed my eyes and there was Satan. Right before me the devil himself. I cannot word the fear in me that day. I was so scared. Satan was talking too me with telepathy, he was showing me all the sins of my friends and family I was so scared alone and hurt. I at that moment realized I was a bad person and If I were too die then and there I would be in hell. After awhile Satan didn't scare me being all alone scared me the most the darkness is enough too swallow you whole and drive you mad.

I kept repeating "This is our fault" (I was refering too humanity) "Its all our fault were here in this mess, its all our fault, I shouldn't have been so stupid too do this too myself"

Then my sister walked in the room and I said "I want too talk about God" in the most innocent tone ever I sounded like a scared child. I didn't know what too say but talking about God was a good start, so my sister started talking about Jesus but she was being sarcastic with lots of "duhs and oh geez" because all sisters are like that.

And I told my sister its all our fault that humanity is dieing and that I can't explain my actions before God and she looked at me and said "On the day of Judgement Jesus will do all the talking for you" and that really sank in.

"Jesus will do all the talking for you on the day of judgement"

I instantly did a 180 at that moment.

Then God himself came from heaven and filled my entire being with his energy I went from puking and sickly too hyper active and joyful I was jumping around saying I love God I love God I was never ever ever so happy in my life. I was literally "high on God". It was a pure love that nothing could describe and I realized God allowed Satan too reveal himself because God knew I would repent and learn. He was testing me. I went outside and the world stopped being so dark and gloomy I was standing in my backyard like any other day but with God at my side the world transformed right before my eyes into a beautiful paradise only a skilled artist could come close too depicting there was green grass, butterflys and the sun felt good on my skin.

From that point on. I don't consider myself religious or even holy. Just someone who loves God. God is the picture perfect companion and I could never blame him for anything that we humans do too ourselves. Most people think of God as a ruthless tyrant but they have God all wrong God is so merciful and loving you cannot do justice too his character by describeing how awesome he is.

And It breaks my heart too know Gods heart is breaking over humanity.

What can I say? I just love God and after a lifetime of "Empty Prayer" I am glad he was listening the entire time.

And If you have anydoubt about this go ahead and pray pray and pray some more.

Your right on Goofy....keep looking for His direction....and it does come. What I've found in times of difficulty "hearing" from God I figure....one is its me...two is its the evil one...and three its the Lord...I rule out which makes no sense at all...God does use common sense and I rule out what is not scriptural and I usually can get it figured out.

You're such an inspiration for the ways
That I'll never ever choose to be
Oh so many ways for me to show you
How the savior has abandoned you
Fuck your God
Your Lord and your Christ
He did this
Took all you had and
Left you this way
Still you pray, you never stray
Never taste of the fruit
You never thought to question why

It's not like you killed someone
It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
Praise the one who left you
Broken down and paralyzed
He did it all for you
He did it all for you

Oh so many many ways for me to show you
How your dogma has abandoned you
Pray to your Christ, to your god
Never taste of the fruit
Never stray, never break
Never---choke on a lie
Even though he's the one who did this to you
You never thought to question why

Not like you killed someone
It's Not like you drove a spiteful spear into his side
Talk to Jesus Christ
As if he knows the reasons why
He did it all for you
Did it all for you
He did it all for you

Re: My Testimony ...How does God get your attention ??
I love this thread sooo much!!!

Thank-you OP and others for the storys.

I have a similar tale I want to share in short form.

As a child from birth I can remeber having a connection with God. But by the time I got to high school I stopped thinking about God, because my friends didnt believe and I wanted to fit in.

Fast Foward 15 years.

Well my life really wasnt going so good, no friends and depression and I was really ready for a change so I decided to pack my things into my car and drive to the west coast and start a new life. 3 days into the drive West and Im in jail.

It was after I got let out of local jail and started driving West again I started parying, not sure if anyone was listening. Just repeadidly appoligizing for messing up soooo hard. I Prayed while driving on the Highway for 4 days.

By the time I got to the west coast I was seeing signs all over the place, everywhere, and endless Deja Vu, I was going crazy, until I started understanding Gods message. That was 2 years ago.

Since then Life has been sooo much better I can see, hear, and feel Gods presence in everyday life.He's been giving me a helping hand with all things. I even got a Tattoo that says 'Have Faith in God' on my Arm.

I just wish my friends would believe in God too, but many of them are just 'too smart' for God.

Agian love you guyshf

6 Then the Lord said to Cain, “Why are you angry? Why is your face downcast? 7 If you do what is right, will you not be accepted? But if you do not do what is right, sin is crouching at your door; it desires to have you, but you must rule over it.”
