I had grown up in a Christian home but never really accepted it. When my parents divorced when I was a kid, I struggled a lot. I blamed everything on God and completely turned my back. I got into many things I shouldn't have. So one night when I was in bed, staring at the ceiling, I came to the conclusion that I needed out and there was only one way to do that. I got on my knees beside my bed and prayed and asked for forgiveness. I wasn't feeling any different afterwards but then I started shaking dramatically. I wasn't cold and I didn't have a fever. I then reached out to a small blanket on my floor. When it hit my back I stopped shaking and began crying.
I will never forget that night.
