I haven't been to church since my husband died 12 years ago, but have never lost my faith in Jesus Christ, my Savior.
The experience I had was over a week ago. What kind I can't explain.
Last Tuesday morning when I woke up, I had an overwhelming need to read my bible. While reading St.John, the phone rang and it was my daughter and she asked "what are you doing"? "Reading the Bible", I answered, she asked, "any reason, because you never read the Bible any more". There was a pregnant pause on my end of the line, then I spoke, "because", not really knowing why myself.
The next night at 8:00, I was watching TV, flipping through the channels searching for something interesting to watch. I kept flipping past this particular church sermon, on the second or third time passing the serman, something made me stop and watch. I watched the entire service and afterward I felt so good. (Hard to explain) because it was a new feeling deep inside that I had never experienced. That night when I said my usual prayers, I shared my expierence and feelings about the serman with the Lord. The next morning around 8:00am, the phone rang and it was my daughter telling me that a family member had died the night before, and I asked, "what time did she pass". She said, "8:30 last night, why"? I shared with her my experience and her response was, "how wierd".
I have no where to go with my story, but, had to share it.
If by chance, this gets read, pls. Share w/me what you think. Do you think it was something that cannot be explained.Don't want to hear the usual cliches. I am 69 years old, and would like to hear something refreshing out of the box. If not, please do not respond.
