I was an atheist the first 19 years of my life. I was an ignorant and arrogant young man, and then when I joined the US Air Force I became agnostic
and started going to Christian churches occasionally, but never really believed. When I was 21 years old, I was in the hospital because of a history
of drug addiction and a suicide attempt, and I was on the verge of death (either from an OD or from killing myself)
I prayed to God for a sign that He existed, and the hospital phone rang, and it was a voice, asking me why I didnt believe in God, and if I believed
in God now? every time I would say yes, then thought to myself no, im going nuts, etc , the voice would repeat again, in a more stern voice, if I
believed in God or not. This happened several times, and while it was happening, the TV in the room was flickering and changing colors, nothing else
in the room was different though, I was not hallucinating, I was not under the influence of drugs or withdrawing from any drugs....
After that happened, I kept experiencing synchroncities,that really shouldn't happen. I also had a series of intense dreams that were mostly about
me being surrounded by angels in a hotel room (dont ask me why), and other things happened to me as well, though I do not feel like typing a big long
story of every thing that happened...
I have been convicted by the Holy Spirit many times since then, and when I look back and see all the people God put in my life in the first 19 years
of my life, to try and smarten me up, it's painfully obvious this life is planned and not as random as it seems sometimes
My personal experiences are not the only thing that lead me to the faith I have today, it is also through reading the Bible and studying theology, and
looking into atheistic arguments, and arguments for and against God, for thousands of hours over the past 5 years, and the more I educate myself, the
more I reaffirm my faith and my experiences as Truth.
Hope this is what you were looking for....God bless you and I hope you find what you're searching for....
