I was really very angry. Mom would not let me go to the movie because I was upset with her for making me clean the kitchen and make dinner. But what had made my anger so much more intense than that of a bratty teenagers was that my dad had deserted us and I had to be homeschooled while I was watching my little sisters and my mom went to massage school. And now I'm in school two grades behind were I should be because my family had not homeschool right. And I just found out that my dad had tried to kill himself so he was in the phsyche ward at a hospital in Hawaai and it felt like I was about ready to to do the same thing.

Anyway it is probably easy to guess that I had been giving God the silent treatment for a long time. And what sort of stupid idiot gives God the silent treatment? So lately I've been trying to get back with Him but I think He is to angry to do anything right now. Except for one day I was just so lonely that I sat down on my bed and wept for an hour trying to get Him to say something to me.
"sleep."
So I did. The next day I came to school and sat down next to the Buddist-gay-rights-pro-abortion, chick so she turns to me and says,

"What is Eternal Salvation?"

And my jaw almost drops. Then I collect myself and explain Gods love and forgivens towards humanities shortcomings.... not very smoothly I might add. But during this time a wave of peace washed over me and I felt... alive like God and His angels were all singing out of my mouth. I have not heard God since then ... but the peace is still there. And I think my Father my Heavenly Father is back.

Quite a journey here. Lots of issues mentioned. Good to see the main character finally decided to give God a chance to help him. You might want to give more attention to editting your next work. Helps the reader get the message more clearly.

A long journey in a few words. Nicely done, although too quick but must be to stay within the word limits. Nice to know that God's word stays hidden in our hearts until we need it. :)
