I read your thread some time ago, just how long ago I don't as I couldn't find my post, and was deeply moved by the beauty with which you described
heaven. I can now say good sir that you led me back to God. I was so deeply disturbed in the time before I found your post and found myself delving
into the occult, etc. Yours was the LAST post I read before I left ATS. I only recently came back as of today and was reminded of your post.
For what you did, I can only say thank you.
The Lord is very much a part of my life today and he quides my every action and thought. I have never been so deeply touched by anything as I have by
God. He guides me in a way that I know it is him and when you finally come to the realization of his presence in your life, it seems like all of those
odd moments finally make sense. I cannot tell you how many times I've been practically slapped in the face with his plan for me and every time I'm
It's as if I was blind before, my vision healed by God.
And you sir, led me back to him.
Then again, perhaps it was all part of his plan. In fact, I'm sure it was all part of his plan. The Lord works in mysterious ways, ways that I will
never understand, but I can thank you for what you did for me. I found God and have been lucky enough to hear my calling in life! I am leaving with
United Planet in January to Nairobi, Kenya, Africa where I will be working with orphaned children who have been displaced by the disease and violence
within their neighborhoods. Nairobi is in fact the capital there and has one of the worst slums in the world....that is where I'm going. I am not
afraid to go honestly, I am more afraid of not going. God has shown me the path I am to take and I will gladly follow his direction.
I'll be in Kenya for a year, teaching the children and mentoring them, after which I have chosen to travel to another country. Perhaps even Darfur? I
don't know yet, but I have faith the Holy Spirit will guide my decisions appropriately. I even head a community service/action group called
Reconstructing Hope now! All of this I attribute to God, but once again, I want to say thank you. I also felt as though telling you may bring peace to
your own self. Perhaps an outcome of your story? An outcome finally of what the Lord sent you back to do?
