Okay so welcome to my profile fanfictioners!! I am a sixteen year old British girl and as you might have guessed, I think life is for living, not sitting around when you could be doing something awesome :D
The most important thing in my life is my religion - I am a Christian and I believe in God. I am really not trying to put anyone off my writing by saying that, because my stories don't have any references to Christianity in them (cos even if I did try to put it in, which I don't, it wouldn't really work with Merlin and stuff!) but I don't really like people using God's name just in passing. By this I mean saying 'oh God' and 'Oh my God' - if you don't want to talk to God, then why say that?? I absolutely love my God and Jesus with everything I've got and my idea of hell is not being with Him and able to talk to Him whenever I need to :D Jesus saved me and he's my best friend!!
This is a story about God. Read if you believe in him, and read even if you don't.
A teenage girl about 17 named Diane had gone to visit some friends one evening and time passed quickly as each shared their various experiences of the past year. She ended up staying longer than planned, and had to walk home alone. She wasn't afraid because it was a small town and she lived only a few blocks away.
As she walked along under the tall elm trees, Diane asked God to keep her safe from harm and danger. When she reached the alley, which was a short cut to her house, she decided to take it. However, halfway down the alley she noticed a man standing at the end as though he were waiting for her. She became uneasy and began to pray, asking for God's protection. Instantly a comforting feeling of quietness and security wrapped round her, she felt as though someone was walking with her. When she reached the end of the alley, she walked right past the man and arrived home safely.
The following day, she read in the newspaper that a young girl had been raped in the same alley just twenty minutes after she had been there. Feeling overwhelmed by this tragedy and the fact that it could have been her, she began to weep. Thanking the Lord for her safety and to help this young woman, she decided to go to the police station. She felt she could recognize the man, so she told them her story. The police asked her if she would be willing to look at a lineup to see if she could identify him. She agreed and immediately pointed out the man she had seen in the alley the night before. When the man was told he had been identified, he immediately broke down and confessed. The officer thanked Diane for her bravery and asked if there was anything they could do for her. She asked if they would ask the man one question. Diane was curious as to why he had not attacked her. When the policeman asked him, he answered, "Because she wasn't alone. She had two tall men walking on either side of her." Amazingly, whether you believe or not, you're never alone. Did you know that 98 of teenagers will not stand up for God, and 93 of the people that read this won’t repost it?
Repost this if you truly believe in God.
