When Jesus Met and Rescued Me on a Road to Misery
I experienced some pain and suffering after my separation. One day, I felt something I never felt before. I had to call a friend and ask for some help. I went to her house and she told me that I was having a panic attack. She gave me some medication, and after that, I felt much better. She gave me a few more just in case I needed it again. When I felt the same way again however, I asked God this time to help me. I didn’t want to take the pills and I didn’t want to start an addiction or dependency to these pills. I told God that I didn’t want to use these pills and He helped me. I knocked on His door and He opened it. He was waiting for me to knock and let go of my anxiety. He was the one who helped me thrive during this difficult time in my life.
After that, I started going to church every Sunday and got very involved. When I didn’t have a relationship with God, I always thought my life was good; I had no addictions, I was a good person, everything was fine. But then one day, I desired more. I wanted a close, intimate relationship with God. This is when I renewed my baptism vow. Having a deep relationship with God is like having a relationship with anyone here on earth, but so much better. It is the same, though, in that we have to give our relationship with Him time and devotion. I now enjoy reading His word and love talking about it. I feel so good following His commandments. He is the only one to cure our pain, sickness or addictions. In my case, He cured me before I even had the addiction. He restores us and loves us no matter what, and He will meet us anywhere we are. We don’t live in this world forever so we need to trust in His promises and know that He loves us unconditionally. One day, we will be reunited with Him for all of eternity.
I feel so rich. He lives inside of me!
