I saw a youtube video posted by a boy who had a deadly disease that ultimately killed him on christmas day. His story touched me and I want to share my feelings and also encourage everyone else to possibly watch that video.

I’ve always known God was there. Right beside me, just like a friend, He always had my back. I guess I never really realized, in all His entirety, that He truly was there. I’m not sure how I could have missed Him, maybe since I’ve never actually seen Him physically I just felt like maybe He wasn’t there and yet was? If that makes any sense at all. In fact, at one moment in my life, I thought maybe I was just crazy along with every other Christian. I had doubts, as I still continue to but I choose to believe instead of deny.  However, now I know for absolute certainty that God is not a made up figure. He wasn’t just written in a book. He wasn’t just a figment of someone’s imagination. He wasn’t just a dream or some kind of joke. He was and always will be real.

Some atheists and others believe in possibly the scientific aspects of the creation. I understand that it is a little far fetched to hear that an invisible, to our eye, being created the universe and the planet we live on. But truly, what in this universe makes sense? Where did the dust and particles come from that ultimately created the planet? How did they just happen to collide together to create this beautiful place we call home? What is nature without its perfect systems and own creations without an explanation of there being an amazing being like God? Look at a baby for goodness sake. That tiny little miracle of a child, formed by a perfect act of love, how can you not see the big picture here?

He’s real, I can feel it in every bone of my body.

There was a video posted by Ben Breedlove on Youtube.com a couple weeks ago. I watched that video in awe at what he saw. I always feared death, it seemed terrifying. I was afraid of God possibly being inexistent and I would just be in darkness forever. For me, his story was comforting and yet terrifying all in the same instance. I finally knew the truth, there is a God. I just cried. That video he posted was an eye opener for me and my best friend, Jessica, who urged me to watch it. Everything I’ve prayed about, everything I begged for, everything I’ve done—he actually saw and heard it. I truly don’t know how I could have ever missed Him, how I could have ever passed myself off as a Christian without truly understanding and believing that He is real. Right now, I urge everyone reading this short piece I’ve written to watch that video. I hope it’s as much of an eye opener for you as it was for me and all other watchers.

And ya know? All I can think about right now is how amazing it is to know that God is real.



-Thank you Ben Breedlove, for opening my eyes, RIP. <3



Thank You

I completely agree with you. I also watched this video the other day and it really did reduce me to tears. I always have been and always will be an atheist but something in this video really spoke to me and I completely understand how you feel, it was a really incredible thing to watch and I too would urge everyone to watch it!
