“In my distress I called upon the Lord, and cried out to my God;” -David
My good friend Ted should be dead.
He had consumed enough drugs to drop a very large horse. By all rights, Ted should be very dead.
But there he was, still alive. Try as he might, he couldn’t quite pull the trigger even though he had become suicidal. In fact, he wondered why he was still breathing.
