I was raised atheist by my parents, I live in the UK which is largely non-religious in its culture these days, I went to a state school and have been taught only the basics of all of the worlds major faiths, I can therefore state that until recently I have never really considered God.
Earlier this week I started a brand new notebook for my journaling that I do to help unload my thoughts. Whenever I start a new notebook I like to open with a quote, usually a line of poetry or some wisdom, sometimes even just a statement of my own that i feel encapsulates my feelings. I decided to open this nite book with the quote “I am the Alpha and the Omega, the First and the Last, the Beginning and the End” I have no idea why i picked this quote, I have never read the bible and I am not sure where I got the quote from. So as is commin when quoting scripture I wanted to reference the line, which I looked up on the interent, and found it is Revelation 22:13. And then with a sort of miod amusment noticed that it was also the exact time it said on the clock. Being an atheist i dismissed it at first but I have found that it is incredibly unlikey using probabilty mathmatics that i stumbled upon this quote at that exact time, either a minute sooner or later and it would have gone unnoticed by me…
I believe as well that this quote is Christ announcing his divinity?
I have consulted with the only religious person I know (a muslim) and he advised me to think more about my life and how God connects us all.
So I have thought about it, I have a knack for learning languages (I speak 3 other than English)
I have a talent for writing,
And I have great empathy for those in need.
Can someone please help me, having grown up without faith it is quite frightening to have “a crisis of faith”
Thanks in advance.
P.s. i have never posted on here so not sure if i foll9wed all the rules, any help on that would be great too
