New here: Finding Life In New Faith https://bibleforums.org/showthread.php/286525-Finding-Life-In-New-Faith?goto=newpost Mon, 03 Jun 2019 19:57:15 GMT Hi everyone.

I've been a Catholic my whole life and rejected my faith as a teenager. I have not had a great life. Don't get me wrong, I've been happy at times. But for the most part I have been a closeted depressive my entire life. About 10 years ago I was reintroduced to God by my wife (I am very thankful for her). I've just always felt like God was an acquaintance of mine and that I have never really 'known' Him. Like a celebrity that you may know a lot about and have a friendly affection for but never actually met.

Lately I have been seeking professional help for my depression because I needed an outlet for my feelings. This has made me increasingly aware of being lost in this world of ours. We found a bible based church that is very open and welcoming and has made our family feel very comfortable. We have been attending for about a year now. 9 days ago our pastor gave a sermon that felt like a horse kicked me in the face. My wife wasn't feeling well and didn't come with me to service. I sat alone in the congregation.... awake for the first time that I can ever remember. The realizations that came to me, the awareness of life and things around me, the overwhelming emotions that coursed through me... I pray that God someday gives me the ability to describe to any other being. I am renewed, awake from life's coma, having long conversations with God each day like two old friends over coffee.

So, here I am. If its okay with everyone, I joined to check in and sort of chronicle my journey. Hoping that maybe the death and rebirth of my faith can help someone that is going through what I went through up until last week. I can't think of any other way that I can give back to Him then to share where I have been and how He found me.

No matter what you are feeling, He IS there and DOES love you. ]]>
