A while back i was going though some rough times in my life. I had recently quit my job due to stress (telemarketing will do that to you) and i was doing alot of soul searching so to speak. I studied the bible almost all day on a regular basis. Also many texts that arn't in the bible today...

There was this one night i was alone on a saturday night, everyone i knew was out enjoying life yet i just wanted to be alone because i was trying to get out of my drinking and partying all night long phase, it was getting old and i noticed i was as well. As i was reading this passage...

1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

...the door bell rang. It scared the .... out of me, but i jumped up to answer it. I was completely awe struck when i opened the door. It was my two best friends who i haddn't seen in at least two years. Both happen to be dressed in black and red, which was amusing to say the least. They also we're holding a ton of fireworks, and a bottle of whiskey. Both we're drinking a beer with huge grins on their faces. "Hey man long time no see, Lets Party!!" they said! I was so shocked to see them just after reading that verse i just laughed out loud! We sat there and chatted for a bit, and i explained to them that i was really trying get my life on track. I told them i read the bible all the time and i did alot of religious study. They looked at me like i was on crack. Just before they left they said are you sure you don't want to come party, we have this too! My one friend opens his pocket and pulls out a bright red M80, which is a quarter stick of dynomite! "We're gona have some fun!!" Again i burst out laughing, said no thanks and went inside. I must have sat there for an hour just completely shocked at what just happened.

I felt like God just slapped me and said "Wake up you know im real...!"

There are no coincidences...

Just thought i'd share that experience, it changed my life...
