Life Stories

A Marine Hits Rock Bottom

“It was like God had a megaphone pointed directly at me..and only me.”

Garrett, a veteran who served with the Marines for 5 years, felt like he had hit rock bottom after returning from active duty. Watch as he shares his story of what seemed like a chance meeting that led to a life transforming experience in the presence of God.

Even when we can’t see it, God is always moving on our behalf. He’s in every detail— orchestrating divine encounters and drawing us to Himself. God’s desire to redeem and restore creation is seen in every story, every encounter, and every page in Scripture. He’s been at work throughout all of history, to love, save, and restore people. Sometimes He speaks in a whisper and sometimes it feels like He’s got a megaphone pointed in our direction, letting us know just how much He loves us.
