Well, mine happend kind of slow. I first started really believing in God when I was about 15. My family is all traditional italian catholics and I kind of left that when I was a young age. It felt wrong to me to talk to another man and confess my sins and live a lie based on good deeds. So, anyways, my aunt actually brought me under her wing and helped me learn about the bible, God and Jesus. I was still half and half at age 16. I then went thru some wicked things. I was filled with this evil energy. I was an angry girl. I actually use to cut myself. Then at age 17 I went thru a scary tribulation or trial. I was in the hospital. I wont go into detail but I thought I was dieing. That made me draw closer Jesus, but not God. I continued to live half worldly. I acted in a way I know now was displeasing to God. I was in a horible, almost 3 year, relationship with some one who, I don't even think, believed in God. I don't quite recall when it was, but me and him were in a car accedent. Another car was out of control and we did a few 360 spins on the freeway. I remember seeing semi trucks all over and I was certain I was going to get hurt or killed. The car stopped spinning and I broke into tears. We were all untouched. I remember thanking God in tears because I knew He sent one of His angels to save us. The relatonship with that guy cotinued to get worse. After I turned 21, I left him and went down another path that wasn't so great. I was in and out bars with my cousin for about a month. She was a bad influence on me. She is an alcoholic, a stripper,and a sex addict and that started at the age of 17 for her! I quickly realized that she was a horible person and a horible influence on me and stopped speaking with her but before I did, I met this guy, who I knew but didn't know (if that makes sence). He is my ex's cousin. We connected and he knew he wanted to marry me in 2 months time. I explained that I was done with living in sin and if he chose to wait for me, for marriage, we can be together. Well, he said yes. We are now engaged and will be getting married this year. I now feel closer than ever with God. I am with a man who will help me stay close with Him. Though I am not 100% healthy right now, I know I will be soon. I feel God used sickness, in a way, to draw me closer to Him. I love God dearly and thank Him for Jesus. He trully is the definition of love and without him I'd probly be on drugs, really sick, or dead.
