From Pat in SC ~
I was brought up in a Christian home with good Christian parents. So I can say I knew about Jesus all my life. But as I grew older, I rebel against my raising. I tried different things in the world to make me happy, but my raising never left me. As the Bible said in
Proverbs 22:6, Train up a child in the way he should go, and when he is old, he will not depart from it. This is so true, no matter what I did or where I went my raising followed me.
Had it not have been for prayers, I would probably be in hell today, but thank God for the prayers that were prayed for me, I am free. Jesus did not leave me but I left him. And when I come back to him he was waiting right where I left him. Jesus has done so many miracles in my life, I can tell you many but one I would like to share is in 1984, I took sick at work, and went to the doctor, and he said I had a virus, well came home and stayed in bed the whole weekend, and on Sunday the preacher came and prayed for me, and he said Lord, rebuke this fever, I knew I was sicker than what I thought I was, and I took my temperature, it was around 105, close to it.
I was taken to the hospital where they wanted to run test, no, my mom said it is her appendix, operate on her, so the doctor said, they would have to do exploratory surgery, but did not know where I would make it or not, or what kind of condition, I would be in.
Well they did the surgery, and found out my appendix had burst, and had formed an abscess. When I woke up, they were surprise, how good I did, I only had to wear a tube in my side for 5 days, I was not sick or nothing, praise God for his healing power. There are so many more miracles I could share, but this is one.
If I die before the rapture, I want to wiggle my toes in the river of Jordan, and I want to see the face of Jesus, and bow at his feet and thank him for dying for me. Jesus is so good, if I can help one person in my life then my living will not have been in vain.
So my friend, I would like to close by saying, if you don't know Jesus, ask him to come into your heart, and accept him. He is there waiting for you, with open arms.
Remember, I want to stroll over Heaven with each of you. If I can be a blessing to anyone please let Connie know, she knows how to get in touch with me. Thank God for good people like her and Diane.
Jesus is coming soon, please get ready. I have heard this all my life but it is winding up time, my friend, please don't be lost.
Love in Christ,
