I shared my salvation testimony via YouTube and several atheists mocked the fact that when I came to a dark place, due to trials and problems in life, the Lord reached down and chose me, and pulled me up out of the pit of despair. God uses such trials in life to bring us unto Him. Specifically I remember all this confusion was in my head, like numbers swirling around, and the instant I called out “God, if you exist, help me!” all that stopped and I felt a still quiet presence in my soul.
Psalms 147:3 He healeth the broken in heart, and bindeth up their wounds.
The word translated “wounds” in Hebrew עַצֶּבֶת `atstsebeth can also be translated “pain” or “sorrow”. God is the only power in heaven and earth who can do this, eternally.
