Yes, I would love to. I was raised by a darwinist father and a feminist mother, and never went to church. I rejected Christianity as boring and the Bible as a fairy tale, although I would have said I believed in God. I also believed in reincarnation, I held tarot parties and I visited psychics to talk to my mum after she died (she didn't talk back!).
I even pulled my boyfriend away from the church and we got married in a civil ceremony in Scotland.
Then we moved to a new place, and the first friend I made told me she is a Christian, and gave me her story. I was totally unimpressed and carried on partying and drinking and visiting psychics etc. My marriage wasn't great and I thought about looking for a new dad for my children.
My new friend invited me to her baptism after I'd known her about a year, and I went along because it obviously meant a lot to her. I was embarrassed to be there on the beach with the happy clappy brigade, but I stayed.
Several people gave their testimonies that day, and as I listened, I started to feel strange inside. I could see that these people really did believe that they knew Jesus and that knowing him had changed their lives. Then the pastor spoke for a while, about the sadness in the world and how people tried to fill that gap inside with drugs, alcohol, sex, money.....but none of these things worked, which is why so many are on pills for depression. I was one of them, and I started to get tearful. He said that only Jesus could fill this emptiness, and that if anyone wanted to be blessed by Jesus, would they raise their hand. Well, this was it, my moment! I knew by now that God was talking directly to me, and I hesitated......but somehow my hand went up, I was not going to miss this. The pastor said, 'bless you, ' and I was overwhelmed in that instant by the presence of God. It's hard to explain, like trying to explain how you know when you are in love, but I was filled up with joy and peace and I knew that God was there and would look after me, always. That was 7 years ago and I have not forgotten it.
That is very detailed and very true. I was healed of my depression in that moment too.
