So I started of in life occaisonally attending a protestant church, when I was a teenager i started going downhill with really bad depression. I had a friend who was jehovahs witness and I was like woah… maybe god does care about me. After a year or so I decided it wasn’t for me it just wasn’t right.
Spent the next few years of my life severly depressed drinking and doing some drugs just recreationally but I usually just drank to make myself feel better.
Then I met my fiance :), he totally put me on the straight and narrow, I don’t drink anymore haven’t done drugs in a year and a half! I am at university getting a degree and sorting my life out and marrying the man of my dreams next year (and only am 22!)
I started working with this girl who is christian, and I thought to myself “wow I miss god” I miss that feeling of belonging. I miss the happiness, my life is almost perfect… this is whats missing.
I went to a new-age/ born again christian church with the girl from my work and It felt god to hear the word of god, but it wasn’t right? so I started researching what demonination would suit me… got some catholic pamphlets and my heart started to go crazy and happy and almost like that feeling of total love. Of being in love with something…
I have one problem, my fiance is athiest. we have had fights about me becoming a christian. He doesn’t get it. He says “someone so educated who is doing a science degree like you, how can you believe in religion”. I have made contact with a local parish and am going to start going… how do I tell him or have a conversation with him? he thinks it will “brain wash” me. I am so torn but I need to go to church, I need this to be whole.
please help me, pray for me. give me some advice anything would be helpfull
