Though much of what happens and is discussed on social media is some mix of frivolity and gibberish, occasionally good things come up, or at least discussions are presented that can lead to thoughts and ideas that help people. One such discussion recently went viral on TikTok: what made you believe in God?
Such is what TikTok personality Sara Morgan asked in a question and story post on that platform, asking those who watched the clip what life experiences made them believe in God and then telling her story of finding faith.
Beginning, she asked, “What’s the weirdest thing that ever happened to you that made you think that God was real?” Continuing, she explained the question, saying, “I’m not talking about believing in some kind of universal energy. I’m talking about something that was so coincidental that Jesus himself must have been sitting in your living room listening to you talk.”
Then she gave her own story. She said that, shortly after her father died, she sent up a prayer for help, saying, “If anything out there is listening to me at all, if there really is anything listening to me, I could use a sign that you’ve got my dad or that he’s okay, because this is gonna absolutely destroy me. I’m not gonna survive it.”
And, shortly after she sent that message to the great beyond, her brother called her. During their phone call, he asked her, “Do you remember that dream I had a few months back when Dad showed up at the house, but we all knew that he was gone, so it was weird that he was there ‘cause he’s not supposed to be there?” Describing her response, Morgan said, “I said, ‘yeah, why?’”
That’s when her brother told her, “Because that dream picked back up last night right where it left off when he was asking for a cup of coffee. So I made him the cup of coffee, we sat down in the kitchen, we talked for a little while, and then he went to the front door to leave. He turned around when he got outside, and he looked me square in the face, and he said ‘this is my last stop…tell Sara I’m okay.”
She then explained her reaction to what her brother said, first being annoyed that she hadn’t gotten to see her father in a dream like her brother, but then turning into a religious realization as she recognized that her prayer had been answered, “Then my irritation turned into sheer panic. Is there actually a God listening to me? Because if there is, I need to clean up my mouth,” she said.
“I’ve always heard people say that God knows what you need before you ask for it, and this was one of those things that I just could not chalk up to a coincidence… My brother had the first half of that dream two months beforehand. He had no clue that day that I was gonna ask for that that morning. God knew I was gonna ask for it, so he gave my brother that dream that night so he could call me that afternoon,” she concluded.

Commenting on Morgan’s powerful testimony, one which has garnered millions of views, hundreds of thousands of likes, and thousands of comments, many people left a message with their own experience of an answered prayer or incredible event that solidified their faith or led to their discovering faith.
“After my grandma passed I was so depressed I opened my Bible and I said God if you are real please give me a sign. I opened to Romans 16:15 my name 🥰” said one commenter. “Hubs & I came up with the art of $ we would need for me to be a SAHM…hubs got a raise for that exact amount the next month. 😁 Our God is real” another added.
“My ex yelled at me and said if God was real tell him to knock on our door. Not 2 minutes later there was a knock. It was a preacher handing out bibles” said still another. “I had 2 miscarriages and took a break from trying. MIL asked about us trying again I said I just want my 2 babies back. Conceived twin girls,” yet another commenter wrote.
“On a hike I felt the urge to SCREAM “ruunnn” so I did & as my children ran off, a large tree fell exactly where they were standing before I screamed,” one added. “My grandfather was blind when he died…after he passed I saw him sitting at his kitchen table and he looked directly at me and said “I can see now”❤️” said another.
