If you think God is wicked, then I see where you're coming from. however here is my perception, which i can describe to you.
i have been literally through hell. The only way out was to work together with others to love one another and not even think negatively about them, or
the world would unravel back to square one. I was stuck, couldn't move at all. I was forced to look at a cigarette butt that I littered for what felt
like eternity. however, I prayed to God and was answered. I worked through love and learned from my mistakes and I am back to my family now.
now I have prayed other times for God to prove he was there.
One time I was in my dad's garage and was pissed off beyond belief. I was cursing God for making me live a life where I could be depressed and see so
many apparently terrible things. There is a single bare light bulb in the ceiling and as I challenged him in his decisions, I said "God if your there
then send me a sign." I was really depressed and thinking dark dark thoughts as I said this. As I finished my sentence, not a moment to late nor too
soon, the light bulb flashed a brilliant blue, like what happens sometime when a bulb burns out, but as bright as a flashbang and vibrantly blue. I
heard the filament hit the glass of the bulb and saw it sitting on the bottom of the bulb red hot. l almost you know whated my pants. I sat there in
the dark and thought to myself - this could all be a coincidence. if its really God, i want a better sign then just a spectacularly blown light bulb.
so I said in dumbfounded disbelief "God if you're really there... could you put the light back on?"
the light literally reformed the filament new. i couldn't believe my eyes. i had witnessed a miracle, or at very least a quantum event. considering
the timing, no one in my mind could have pulled it off except God. This moment has influenced me greatly. I try not to use the Lord's name in vain
oh and Jesus - he died to show us that death is only the beginning. he was the ultimate sacrifice. It shows God's love I think.
He was willing to die a horrible death to show that love wins definitely. like I said I've been in a personal hell. feels like forever, but is only as
long as you hate. God never leaves someone as beautiful as an ATS member to burn. so to liken God to a less than 100% loving creator just don't float
my boat. he has proven to me that if I ask I shall recieve. not what I want, but what I need.
