    Greetings!

    I have never joined a christian forum before. Interestingly I just started turning myself to god weeks ago. I think around 3 weeks ago?

    Long story short, I have avoided god since I was 12 years old after my sister stopped taking me. From then, I suffered a lot, abusive friendships, fights with my mother, and the tear ups of family.

    My sister and I never got along for years, until now. She tried to get me to go to the church 2 years ago, and for some reason I resisted.

    As time went on, things went from bad to worse and lost my job last march from company downsizing. My depression got worse that year and I slept most of the time. (I have clinical depression.)

    However, there was a small voice always preventing me from harming myself as I had a ton of sharp objects in my room. (I do a lot of crafts for my online business.)

    I got another job in October and thought I was finally blessed as I started praying to god to get a job. Sadly, the moment I got a high paying job, my pride went through the roof and mysteriously I got wrongfully terminated. I was unhappy at the job anyway...but I did notice the moment I felt a tinge of pride, my job got worse and I became more drained.

    After that, I was searching for jobs but no luck so I did freelance and worked on my online business. I noticed, I started getting an urgency to join a christian group. I saw one guy who I would see daily at a coffee shop...and every time I saw him, I felt compelled to ask him to join.

    One day, out of nowhere, I just started watching christian videos on youtube about the gospel and that's when I started reading the Bible on my iPad. The first three days I had intense headaches from my forehead but I prayed to god to remove the pain and eventually the pain left days later as I can now read and worship god pain free!

    In addition, I had a sudden idea to work on a project that dedicates to the word of god but I won't talk about it now as it's not done yet.

    And here I am today! Wiser than before and more aware of the world around me. I'm glad god finally got me to join him again.

    So glad that you have given your life to Jesus and that you are walking out your salvation. It is funny how God works in our life and gets our attention. Praying for continued peace and healing in your life.
