How I connected with God: My testimony - Isaiah 45:5

November 21, 2010

Isaiah 45:5 I am the LORD, there is no other; there is no God but Me. I will strengthen you, though you do not know me.

On May 2, 2006, I looked into my eyes and I saw my soul. I was terrified because I was facing a major health crisis and I wasn’t able to maintain the strength and self-sufficiency that characterized my entire life.

Before walking into the laboratory to face a cold, clinical MRI machine, I glanced into the dressing room’s mirror and realized that I was not in control on many fronts. Plus, my child had stayed behind crying because she wasn't allowed to enter the testing area.

I was terrified.

I looked into the mirror and said, “Oh, God, please help me, I am so scared and I don’t know what to do, please help…” Those words changed my life. The best way to describe it is that I saw my soul through the window of my eyes.

It was amazing…

Then I entered the testing room…

As I lay flat on the bed entering the MRI cylinder, waves of terror hit me. Normally I’m not claustrophobic, but I was terrified. This surprised me (after all I like to control everything). I closed my eyes and the most incredible thing happened: I saw my hand in God’s hand encased in a picture frame.

God was holding my hand!

Immediately the panic attack subsided. The picture frame image of God’s hand wrapped around my hand appeared to me a total of three times.

I didn’t know what to think, but I knew that it was God reaching out for me.

I walked out of the testing center a different person. I told my daughter that I was going to give God control of my life. She thought it was an excellent idea since she had been praying for me... But I didn’t tell her I had seen God’s hand until several weeks later. I had to process what happened…

My entire life changed.

I returned to church, and I desired to learn more about God. I started reading my Bible and asking God to open my eyes to understand it. It has been the journey of my life.

I hold on to God’s hand tightly.

“The LORD always does right! God is our mighty rock.”

Moments with God: When all you can do is cry. Luke 7:36-40

July 7, 2013 Remember the story of the woman who poured oil over the feet of Jesus, wept and kissed him? Luke 7:36-40 The Voice
 Once a Pharisee named Simon invited Jesus to be a guest for a meal. Picture this: Just as Jesus enters the man’s home and takes His place at the table, a woman from the city—notorious as a woman of ill repute—follows Him in. She has heard that Jesus will be at the Pharisee’s home, so she comes in and approaches Him, carrying an alabaster flask of perfumed oil. Then she begins to cry, she kneels down so her tears fall on Jesus’ feet, and she starts wiping His feet with her own hair. Then she actually kisses His feet, and she pours the perfumed oil on them.
That's how I felt.  Yesterday I had a memorable “point in time.”  My ear tuned to a melody:  “The King of Heaven’s Armies is right here by my side. “   Tears trickled down my cheeks unexpectedly. The Lord knows my real heart (and your real heart, too).  There’s no hiding. In that perfectly overwhelming moment i…
