I absolutely love it when I read stories that show the contrast between what the enemy of our soul meant for evil and what the lover of our soul, God of the universe can do with that when we turn our lives over to Him.
These stories stand the test of time.
These “testimonies”, stories, show just how far a loving Father will go for the children He loves.
At times quickly, and other times slowly, God enters our dysfunction, and begins to smooth the rough edges.
He knows just what we need and when we need it.
The following story was originally published in May of 2006.
The story is as potent today as the first day it was posted.
This is a real story of God literally saving me from death. I almost died at the age of seventeen and I met Jesus through a near death experience. In my past I’ve been a hardcore atheist, a Hindu, an agnostic with Unitarian Universalism ideas, and even a Wiccan (a new-age cult that practices witchcraft) when Jesus found me.

13 For you created my inmost being; you knit me together in my mother’s womb. 14 I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made; your works are wonderful, I know that full well. 15 My frame was not hidden from you when I was made in the secret place, when I was woven together in the depths of the earth. 16 Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be.
