In March of 2012 I had an Epiphany. With everything that had gone on in my life it hit me one day that God had always taken care of us. He was always there for me. Immediately I became whole and complete having, undeniable faith and trust in Him…no fear whatsoever. That is what turned me into a Christ follower, not merely a Christian. Later that year in December a gentleman approached my car and asked me to roll down the window. I had no idea what wanted.. He told me that Jesus told him to tell me that “everything is going to be alright.”
Oh my God, did I just really hear that? It was and still is the ultimate gift in my life. I was ecstatic yet so very thankful. No matter what the trials have been for me since then, no matter what the world has thrown at me, I now know that everything is going to be all right.
I had a grandson that was born on Ash Wednesday, 2013. As soon as the the umbilical cord was cut, he began turning blue. He was near death. He had been given a 10% chance of survival. He had open heart surgery within hours of his birth. He was in intensive care and was able to come home on Good Friday. Definitely a lent to remember. What I felt, however, was the warmth of knowing that everything was going to be alright. I knew he would make it. He is a very healthy grandson. (His older sister did mention, later on, to her dad that they fixed his heart but forgot to fix his attitude.)
I haven’t had one ounce of fear, stress or worry. I want to grow in my faith everyday. I have an important message to deliver and, through much prayer and discernment, I feel called to do just that.
