According to a story at God Reports, Reg Hyde's life was like life in hell. He was unloved, physically abused and rejected by his mother. He was molested at fifteen years. And he became a drug addict bent on a violent lifestyle. But then something miraculous happened on a mountain top and his life was changed forever.
"I'm a big hairy idiot of a biker and I don't cry very often. I felt like somebody poured hot water through me. The place that was empty inside me wasn't empty anymore." -Reg Hyde(Wales)—He was a hard-living, death-defying biker from Wales on a road trip across America. When his brakes failed on a steep mountain curve, God's miraculous intervention changed his life forever.
According to a God Reports story, Reg Hyde's childhood read like a "doomed to fail in life" playbook. Unloved, abused and rejected by his birth mother, he was also molested when he was 15-years-old by his employer at a grocery store. Later, after he was trained by the Royal Air Force as an electrician, Hyde began taking drugs, abusing his girlfriends, and engaging in criminal activity.
Becoming despondent, he attempted suicide twice. He sought counseling, but when he was told he should consider reconciling with his mother, all Hyde could think is, "If I saw her walking down the road I would drive over her." He even tried praying during this time, but gave up when he didn't see answers to his prayers as he expected them.
Soon, he was an avowed atheist. "I could prove to you God didn't exist," he recalls. Drugs and violence ruled his life, and in 1990 he wrote a poem to the devil in 1990 published in the magazine "Backstreet Heroes." But, still, somewhere in the inner recesses of his soul he wanted to believe in something.Read full article at God ReportsTags: present day miracles, powerful testimony of conversion, positive Christian news, Reg Hyde testimony
