I was an atheist for more than half of my life.
Bruce and I were living in Chicago when our daughter Caroline was a baby. I looked down at her tiny, little body as I rocked her in my arms, and sensed something profound was missing. I somehow thought, “I know that I love her, but there must be a GREATER love a mother can have for her child.” I threw up a quick prayer saying; “God, if you are real, please show me.” That began a season of seeking the truth about spiritual matters. Eventually, this former atheist came to believe that Jesus was the Son of God and that this Christ had died for me and my sins. When I said YES to JESUS… I truly sensed a seismic shift in my soul - I have been forever changed. For me, it was like the light finally came on into my longing heart.
Sometimes I wish I could see God and give Him a big hug.
Now faith is the assurance (the confirmation, the title deed) of the things [we] hope for, being the proof of things [we] do not see and the conviction of their reality [faith perceiving as real fact what is not revealed to the senses]. (AMP) - Hebrews 11:1
If you're skeptical person, like me...You might find all of the historical, prophetic, and archeological evidence for the bible and Jesus fascinating. If you want some resources for that, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
