@philyblunt, a TikTok user, shared the story in a video that has received 5.2 million views.

He says in the video: "In 2017, I was at the lowest point in my life. I left my home, my wife, and my children behind, and I had no intention of returning.

"This guy I met calls me up after I've left. We'd never met one-on-one before, but he asked if I wanted to go out for a beer.

"I said, 'Ok, sure, a little alcohol could help things go a little smoother.'" "God has abandoned me," he responded. The moment when an ordinary but tragic story transforms into what the man claims to be a spiritual experience.

The story goes on: "Everything about him has changed since I said that. His eyes widen and, believe it or not; they begin to glow."

'I have never left you, my son,' he says as he pokes me in the middle of the chest." He prompts me once more. 'I love you, my baby,' he says." 'I am not done with you, my boy,' he pokes me a third time.

Then he gets up and goes of pay the bill, utterly oblivious to what has happened."

What they were drinking couldn't have covered a hefty bill. Putting the jokes aside, his story seems to have touched a lot of people.

Man, I got some severe chills from this," one person said.  "What a wonderful story."

"I'm not crying!" said another. My eye is soaking wet! "This is incredibly strong."

"I've never seen this, and I'm so envious," said a third. And I'm happy you're still alive to tell it."

He slept in his car that night, trying to find out what had just happened. However, things just got better for him from there. His CEO arranged for him to stay in a hotel, his psychiatrist admitted that Christ had touched him, and he returned to his family.

"My life has never been better," he said. If you're watching this and having trouble, please know that God and I love you.
