Todays Daily Prompt: Describe a memory or encounter in which you considered your faith, religion, spirituality — or lack of — for the first time.
Growing up I think I always considered and thought of faith and God. Funny thing is that I had three pastors in my family, and yet they were blind to the things going on right under their noses, strange that…but then often children are not that important to some, sometimes.
I have always had faith though, sometimes mountains full, sometimes my faith meter was very low. I would like to tell about one time in particular though. I will spare you all the details and just tell you the faith part.
It was the middle of the night, I was so scared and so very alone. The only thing I had in my life at that moment, the only thing I could think to do was to pray…I prayed with all my heart and soul, and right then I felt something which felt like an unseen warm blanket covering me and peace was all around in that dark place. I fell asleep that way, I never forgot that answer to my prayer and the few times I tried to retell it, no one really understood.
