Everything that exists had a starting point . . . including you. You may have started on purpose. You may have started by accident (from your parent’s perspective). You may even have started through the magic of medical science. Whatever the circumstances, you had a starting point and it began before you were aware of it.
Physical life is one of many starting points. Your formal education had a starting point. Your career had a starting point. Your romantic life had a starting point. Your experience as a parent had a starting point.
Faith has a starting point as well. What you will find below are the stories of various Jewish and non-Jewish people who discovered that God was seeking them personally and privately. What initially seemed like coincidences or the hand of destiny upon further reflection was revealed to be, "God seeking me!"
