He Found Me

 

I tell people that the Lord found me because at this point of my life I certainly wasn't looking for him. As a young girl I was incredibly hurt by my mother. My spirit had been broken, battered, and emotionally abused. I acted out and was well on my way to self destruction when one day I attended church with a friend from school. I never would have imagined what the Lord was preparing me for.

I had never seen anything like what I saw that day. There were people at the alter on their knees with tears in their eyes. I found out later that no one had died and in fact there was no real reason for this radical flow of emotion.

I had enjoyed myself so much that I continued to go with her on a regular basis. I began to spend time with the youth group and made friends of my own. At this time in particular I was there for the boys and the friends that I had made with no serious interest in what was being taught in the youth group. None the less, I continued attending the youth services (for the boys) for about 2 more years when one day the Lord would reveal himself to me in a powerful way.

I was 15 years old and in high school by now when on this particular day I had been witnessing to a boy in my ceramics class. I was on my way to becoming a better christian. I had finished my assignment and asked the teacher if there was anything else I could do. He instructed me to help the teachers assistant in cleaning the clay machine. Teachers assistant was busy at the moment and showed me what exactly he needed me to do. I began cleaning the clay off of the sides of the machine and placing the excess near the entrance of the inside of the machine. I pulled my hand back and the blade had taken hold of my thumb and very slowly began to take the rest of my hand into the machine. At this very moment I knew that I was in danger. I spoke the words "JESUS HELP ME" and then proceeded to yell for help. I never cried, I was instructed to stay calm and focus and I did do just that. I began to pray as I arrived at the hospital. Scared and confused, all I could do was pray. I began to cry as the doctors spoke of surgery and asked his Holy Spirit to hold my hand.

As I was taken in and prepped for surgery I was wheeled out by the waiting room where my entire youth group and family members had been waiting for word. Instantly I began to feel the presence of the Holy Spirit and a calmness had come over me.

11hrs of reconstructive surgery and an almost certain report from the doctor that my hand would have to be amputated by the following week was of no worry to me as I knew that I was no longer alone. What I asked of his Holy Spirit he had granted. I did not just believe this to be true but I KNEW IT! Matter of factly.

The Doctors believed I would never be able to recover and they had convinced my mother that I would rely on my left hand for nearly everything for my entire life. I told my mother that she did not know the power of the Holy Spirit and recovered over 85% in two years. I believe today that he picked me. I still don't know why but I am grateful that he did because I am no longer allowed to not believe.

Shannshann,

I like how you titled your story "He Found Me"

There's a song titled "He Was There All The Time" Waiting patiently in life, He was there all the time.

Sometimes I think most people underestimate the power in the the NAME OF JESUS and they fail to use it as often as they should.

Most people say "I found God", I know what they mean when they say it, but you actully phrased it right when you said "He Found Me". It is we who are lost, not the Lord. He's right there, all we have to do is call on "His Name" and "His Name" is "Jesus", He is The Divine. "Immanuel" which being interpretated is "God With Us" There's no other name given among men, whereby we must be saved.

So the next time you attend church, and you're moved by the spirit, or feel a burden, or a need to join with them at the alter, that's The Lord tugging at your heart, that's the Lord calling you, laways try to heed and obey.

I might also add, it don't have to be at the alter at the church, you can make your bedside the alter or anyplace where you are, just keep calling on that Precious name of JESUS and watch what happens in your life, Jesus Christ our Lord is there all the time!

I done as Peter said in Acts 2:38, "Repent and be baptized evryone of you in the "NAME" of "JESUS CHRIST" for the the remission of sins, and "YE SHALL RECEIVE THE GIFT OF THE HOLY GHOST"; THE "PROMISE" is "TO YOU", "TO YOUR CHILDREN" and "TO THOSE THAT ARE AFAR OFF" and to as many as the Lord our God shall call.

So The Holy Ghost wasn't just for the 140 that waited for the return of Christ, it's for all of us today. The day of Pentecost was only the beginning, the "Comforter" also known as "The Holy Ghost", Jesus said will come to us in "HIS NAME".

The word of God tell us that the "Holy Ghost" will "LEAD US" and "GUIDE US" into "ALL TRUTH"

I believe you with all my heart and have no doubt that when you called on "JESUS", it was "HE" that picked you up as you said! You have a great story and very inspirational and you continue to witness for "JESUS" for to me "HE" is "THE DIVINE" and gives us the "Holy Ghost" as our "GUIDE".

So to stay on message, the most important words in your story that stood out for me were the words you spoke, "JESUS HELP ME!"

May the love of our Lord Jesus Christ abound in you and always protect you.

In the name of Jesus, God Bless You! Michael

Hello Precious One Of God!

Four years ago I almost had my right hand removed by the propelor of a radio control airplane. After surgery, feeling like a complete moron and 6 months of recovery, I had the use of my hand back as well as the answers why?

It was a message, signal, call it what you like from the beyond for me to slow down, open my eyes and really see the world around me. Heck of a way to get a message across but it worked, for that was the just before I started to "awaken" to what is really important.

The Heavenly Father has always been there with you, he never went anywhere, however you experienced your life as you wished (yes we do choose what we experience, all done at the soul level).

When you reached the peak of your helplessness you simply called for help and it was there with out question. You didn't have to repent anything for what is there to repent, you are a Child of God, born in the glory that is God, only most of us haven't figured it out until something happens and we suddenly "rediscover" the Lord.

My wonderful Friend, your story is one so close to my heart in many ways and it is so close to the hearts of ALL fro as it happens to one it happens to all of us.

Please continue your journey with the Father and experience all the wonders that lie ahead of you.

Namaste my wonderful Friend

James
