The moment that defined my life was a moment of prayer. I wish that I could say that I was feeling deeply spiritual, but the truth is that I was feeling like a disappointment, a failure, and I was angry about it. I was out of ideas, options, and hope.
"God, if you are real,
you need to speak!"
The moments that followed totally altered the course of my life. From screaming profanities at God crying uncontrollably as I heard the voice of God for the first time changed me in a way that is hard to put into words. Arriving at the end of my self was the start of understanding the power and presence of God. That day I found my path, my purpose, and was formally introduced to my savior. Life will never be the same again.
