Probably the most life-changing experience I’ve ever had was one night I spent lost in Philadelphia late at night all by myself. God really grabbed my attention that night and made it clear that I have absolutely no control over my life, my future or even my own safety. It was a very traumatizing way to learn that God is real, that He listens to prayer and that He’s always there for me, no matter what. Up until this event my faith was kinda something I did at church on Sundays and learned about as head-knowledge during the week, but by the end of this night in Philly, my faith had shifted from being my parent’s faith to one that became personal and real to me. The affect of this night impacted my faith forever.
I recently came across the narrative of this story I wrote for an only Bible study and thought I’d post it here for anyone who wants a peek into the near-instant life-change that God did in my life. Believe me, these are lessons I will never forget.
