Listen to This Inspiring Testimony! God Saved This Little Boy

Have you ever given up on God? Or been close to giving up? I have. This is the story of a spiritual journey: from feeling abandoned by God to feeling embraced by God. For years I had been angry with God. Why didn't He rescue me from the abuse, loneliness, and pain of a troubled childhood? Why didn't He stop my parents from abandoning me to the foster care system?

It was the drowning death and resuscitation of a young girl that forced me to rethink my contentious and unhealthy relationship with God. Knocked hard out of my irreligious complacency, I came to see tragedy, hope, suffering, and overcoming with new clarity and understanding. Adversity, I realized, can be one of God's greatest blessings. This is a story about rediscovering God.
