Hello everyone. This site is truly a blessing. I am a believer of Christ. I was here lying in bed and feeling down. Yes, I am a Christian and I’m feeling down. It happens, and I don’t know why but I leave all my emotions in God’s hands. I know he is in control because I let him be in control. So, I’m lying here and I start shopping online, that’s what I do when I feel down and I have a computer in front of me.
But I stopped and thought “I feel down and I should do something more edifying than just shop.” So I “google” testimonies and this site pops out. It’s been a blessing and I hope to get around sharing my own testimony that I know will strengthen many. I will start now with a little. Christ delivered me the ugly world of drugs. I tried to fill the emptiness with what didn’t satisfy me. I cried out to God,
“God if you do exist, save me!”
And He did. I fell asleep behind the wheel after not sleeping for 3 days and had a terrible car accident that immobilized me for 6 months, but everything was in God’s perfect plan.
OK, so here I am once again it’s 1am and I can’t sleep. I’m a nursing student, and my stethoscope (the thing to hear heart beats) just happened to be within my reach. I took it into my hands, and I started listening to my heartbeat. At first, I was analyzing my sounds and just killing time. Then it hit me… Wow, God’s power is what keeps my heart beating. He is who keeps me moving forward.
I could have died in the terrible accident I had (see last post) but I didn’t. Update to my testimony: I had two accidents within a 5-month time frame. I hit head on to the freeway wall at 70 mph and survived. At the time, I wasn’t saved so all I was worried about was missing work, crashing my car, etc. Never did I think to myself, wow, I’m still walking.
I remember when I crashed, some guy pulled over and he asked me if I was ok all I did was reach out to this total stranger and just hugged him. I was afraid. so, my second accident, I hit head on with a tree, I fell asleep behind the wheel. I hadn’t slept for three days because of meth, drinking, marijuana, etc. and I was really messed up.
That night my “so called friend” told me that I didn’t look very good that maybe I should spend the night. I said OK buy I’m sleeping in the car (because I don’t trust sleeping out of my own home) and when I turned on my car, a police car flashed the light on me (he was passing by the neighborhood) and I felt that I should leave, I KNOW GOD PUT THAT FEELING IN MY HEART. I said no I’ll just leave I’ll be fine.
So, I left, and I had a terrible accident (details see last post) but it all turned out for the best. I quit drugs 100% I remember when I was in ICU, the nurse offered me help and I said,
“No way, I don’t need a drug program I can do it alone.”
“You won’t be able to.”
SO, GUESS WHAT? I WASN’T ABLE TO DO IT ALONE. I DID IT BECAUSE I ACCEPTED CHRIST INTO MY HEART AND HE HELPED ME! He did it for me, and he can do it for you too. You don’t have to be a drug addict. You can be the most normal person (like I thought I was) but you still need Christ. He is my savior my Lord, my EVERYTHING and my heart beats only because of him. Looking back to who I used to be and to who I am now, I would naturally say “impossible!” but what is impossible for man, is possible through God!
