Just over a year ago, I've found God. I was involved in a car accident that should have crippled me, i walked away with just some bruising. After that, i struggled to find an explanation as to why i was spared I came too see that there is more to the world than meets the eye, and we have a noble creator. I found that the only explanation is that there is a God, and i have guardian angels looking out for me. I thought i had cheated death probably 10 times during my life between my wreckless adventures, my time in AFG, mistakes and just misfortunes; but i didnt cheat anything, and its just was not my time.
Since then, i have started to pray occasionally, mostly just for guidance through some difficulties I faced, and i did feel like i was guided. Once you have seen, you can't unsee. I started noticing things for the blessings that they are.
This brings me to two of the most current things in my life. I am a father and was just given emergency custody of my son. I thought this was a negative until i looked at it from different perspective. Its a blessing, i have the chance to rear my son the way i see fit. To raise him to be the kind of man I still aspire and strive to be.
Couple this with i just found that my favorite singer / artist has released a new album. The artist comes from a alternative rock band, and has ventured on his own the last couple years. The new album has a favorite song of mine, "Closer, my God, to thee". The album has many religious songs, and two i would say are more of a "Christmas" song.
Having a new album to explore, to further develop my relationship with God, at this current point with all the current stress ive been under with the way things have played out is another blessing. I wish i wasnt so hard headed in my younger years and could have seen things for what they really are earlier. But still God is great and i am thankful for everything.
