Before I became a Christian, I was doubting the existence of God, one night. I was in such a dark place in my life and felt the need to turn my life around, so I turned to God (there was literally nowhere else to turn). But I wanted to know if this "God" stuff was actual real before I invested my all into it. I didn't want to go my whole life expecting "pearly white gates" at the end, to only die and realize it was all untrue!
So I prayed to God, one night, that He would reveal Himself to me. In fact, I knelt down in prayer for 1-2 hours, waiting to hear a voice from the sky, saying something like, "I Am real, My son. Believe in Me." (Hey, I'm just being honest!). I did not audibly hear Him speak to me and I got off of my knees, saying, "Welp, I tried. I guess He's not that real after all." To be honest, I was quite disappointed and felt a bit let down, thinking that because God does not exist, I now have to face all of these problems on my own.
But as I went to sleep that night, I saw the Scripture "Romans 1:20" flash before me in my dream just before waking up. I had never read Romans 1:20, before, so I quickly grabbed my phone, which was at my bedside - Google'd the Scripture, and it read, "For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God." I said, "WOW!" I was blown away... While I was asking for proof of God's existence, God was basically telling me that I already have all the proof I need to believe. The proof of God is in His creation! Nature and science supports His existence. The very fact that I'm alive is proof of God's existence; He created me!
A month or 2 later, I gave my life to Jesus Christ (February, 2012) and have been in love with Him ever since. As Creator of this entire universe, He took out time to respond to the concerns of little ol' me. Thank you, LORD, for caring.
