One day I asked God the question

And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.
Acts 2:4

As a kid growing up I remember wondering where we come from and what would happen after we die. I was not raised with any specific religion but I thought it normal to think that if God was real I would want to be with him. As a teenager growing up in Holland I lived my life like many other teenagers in the western world; I started to think for myself, was asking my own questions. As I saw more of how this world works I grew more and more disillusioned. I could not understand how people seemed to blindly follow the path of education-career-family and finally death with no certain purpose, and how people often treated each other so very poorly.

One day I asked God the question “If you are there, I want to know what you want from me”. Very shortly afterwards I met an ex-boyfriend of my sister who showed me clearly that the God of the Bible would give me his Spirit if I wanted to know him. We prayed for this and minutes later I spoke in a new language I could not understand, just as the Bible said would happen! I knew then that God was real, powerful and good and truly amazing and miraculous things have happened since that day.
