I've held onto several experiences that I've had. I know God is communicating with me to help me through. I want to share my experiences with you of faith and peace.
When my daughter was about 4 years old, she developed facial seizures due to a fall. It was stressful event the doctors would try different medication thinking it will work but as soon as we would get home, she would have a seizure then back to the emergency room we would go. We went through this process for about two weeks of trying to control the seizures with the right medication.
One morning I was watching my daughter sleep after spending a night in the emergency room due to a seizure episode. I was relieved that finally she was resting. No soon as that thought entered my mind, my daughter started seizing. I was on the phone with the 911 operator because this seizure seemed to have lasted longer then the others. I was trying to communicate with the operator but witnessing my daughter's eyes rolled back, her facial muscles convulsing, and hearing her gasp for air because she was having difficulty breathing. And I was in a serious pantic mood. I was an emotional wreck.
When all of a sudden a STRONG sense of PEACE came over me & I hear "Don't worry she is going to be alright." Immediately all fear left my body. I instantly claimed down. The sense of peace was very comforting and I without a doubt knew she would be alright. I knew it. My daughter experienced several more seizure but I handled them in a calm manner even the nurses noticed how claim I was. I didn't tell them then my experience but I knew things were going to be alright. About a week later the "doctor's prescribed the right medication".
Today my daughter is 16 and have not had a seizure since the age of 8. She is a honor student in school with no side effect of the fall, seizures or medication. I know without a doubt my Lord was letting me know He is in control.
The next experience I want to share is one that help me grow my faith in the Lord. I had gave my life to Christ but my "friends" were still worldly. I had not learned how to draw the line with my new way of living for Christ from the worldly life I had. I knew in my heart that God was calling me to follow him. One night I allowed myself to be persuaded to go out with my friends to celebrate a birthday. I agreed to go to the club. In my heart I knew it was a place I didn't want to be nor should I be there.
Prior to be giving my life to God, I had been in the club scene and I knew there was nothing good going on in the club. My emotions that night were odd. I stayed in pray because I didn't feel right about going but I didn't want to let my friends down. Normally before going to a club the mood of everyone would be excited ready to party. All I heard was what's wrong with you, why are you acting like this. I told my friend I really feel I shouldn't be there. Nevertheless they were still glad I came.
I walked around the club to disassociate myself from the party that goes on at a party. All I could think of was I should be there so I started praying while I walked around. (to myself) I prayed to God to show me why. I was a young christian and felt then I needed "proof" of His word. I remember saying that as I walked around. As I walked toward the dance floor, I saw a image that frighten me but not to a sense of fear but as in WOW! The people dancing looked liked creatures, nothing bloody but NOT normal. I had to blink my eyes twice because of what I saw. Needless to say, I went to my friends and told them I was leaving. I haven't stepped foot in a club sense. I've lost some friends that I've shared this story with and I've gained some true friends.
I know some of you may think I was drinking or the lights made things appear to seem that way. I stopped drinking when I gave my life to Christ. I went to the club about a month after getting saved. I drove myself there because I already knew I wasn't going to stay the entire time so no alcohol was involved. There is no way I would be drinking and driving. No one had gave me anything because I wasn't drinking anything. No drugs to make me see things were involved with what I saw. I had only been there about an hour before I saw the creature figures. I know I saw what I saw. I advise you to pray and believe. It was God answering another prayer. I'm glad He is showing me. God is Good to us!
