Then he says, he saw the suffering his death would eventually cause.
My mother... I was there when she collapsed when she found out I was dead from the suicide.
My daughter... She was 18, and she's sitting on the floor contemplating suicide because I wasn't there for her.
I was on my hands and face weeping. Weeping. Not just crying, but weeping for Jesus to save me.
"How did you get out?"
I was pretty much lifted up by the back of my neck, and slowly, very slowly lifted out of this pit.
A voice told me; "You have work to do, and if you continue to live like you are, this is where you're going to spend eternity."
Matthew says he woke up a day later, back in his apartment. How he got there remains a mystery.
