Here is another story that happened to me, once again in Niles, Ohio. It was the year 2008, sometime around January/February. I had been going through a rough time. My friends, whom I had known ever since we were very young, had begun to distance themselves from me for reasons that I did not know.
I felt alone for the most part, mostly hanging out with my uncle. Other than that, I sat at home upstairs in my room alone.
One night, I was feeling particularly depressed over my whole situation. I did not feel like doing anything. I did not want to watch TV, be online, or anything that I normally enjoy doing normally. I went downstairs and lay on the couch; my mother got up a few minutes later to use the restroom and saw me lie there.
She asked what was wrong and I said, "Just feeling a little depressed is all." She used the restroom and went back to her room to sleep. I lay on the couch for a little while longer, just thinking of things of the past and other stuff people do when they are just remembering old stuff.
For reasons that I do not understand, the thought of a lady that used to read Bible verses to me came to mind. I wondered why she had not called in such a long time and why she had stopped calling so suddenly. I stayed on the couch awake for a little bit longer, maybe an hour, and eventually fell asleep right where I was.
I woke up the next morning and heard my mother washing dishes in the kitchen. I got up and walked in there, which could not have taken longer than ten seconds. Then, the phone rang.
I answered it and it was the lady that I had thought of the night before that used to read me the Bible verses. She said she wanted to read to me Revelation 21:4, which says "He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away." I was stunned.
After I got off the phone with the woman I told my mother what had just taken place. She looked amazed too and said to me, "I prayed to God for you last night and for him to show you that everything was going to be alright. This is like a miracle!"
I believe that it was a miracle and I think it was God showing me that everything would one day, be much better.
