That I Encountered Jesus.

GOD IS WITH US

I have told you all this so that you may have peace in me. Here on earth you will have many trials and sorrows. But take heart, because I have overcome the world.”John 16:33 New Living Translation Bible

Although being a Christian for many decades it was not until I endured my crucifixion (We all worship something equal to or more that Christ, in order to be used by Christ this must be crucified. I do not take that lightly. It is the most horrible and excruciating pain and agony you will ever experience. But, on the other side of it you will thank Jehovah for it every day. I do) that I encountered Jesus.

It was during a church service and there was a brilliant light that completely encompassed me. A voice came out of the light and assured me: “I love you and am with you always. I will never leave you nor forsake you. “ There was a washing, like being under a cool waterfall on a blistering hot day of all the pain, hurt, and anguish completely away. It was the most refreshing and cleansing experience ever experienced. That encounter changed my life forever and shall never forget it.

Yes, I had been blessed countless times with the Holy Spirits guidance and strengthening, comforting and encouraging and still am BUT, that could never compare with the encounter with Jesus. I greatly appreciated and still do, the Holy Communion with the Holy Spirit but the encounter with Jesus was WOW.

 “One encounter with Jesus Christ is enough to change you, instantly, forever.” — Luis Palau

Prayer: Thank you Jesus ‘Immeku (The Lord Is With You) for the amazing privilege of encountering You so many times. Each encounter leaves me desiring to never leave Your presence.

May your house be filled with joy in the morning and sweet dreams at night. May it be a home where love has come to live. Joseph a son of Jehovah

I am an unpaid live in care giver for my aged mother. As well I regularly do volunteer work with a local church group helping working poor establish themselves independently. . I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.

  1. Nothing will ever compare

    • I know that to be true

      • And you don’t know nor ever can unless you have Him.
        Last week an employee joked you need two Valium to work there. I almost laughed it off but know them too well that I refused. I said “no I have Jesus.”
        “No…. you need Valium.”
        “Jesus”
        “Welll no maybe but …”
        “No, you don’t have Jesus. I do so you cant understand you don’t need the Valium because you have real peace.”

        To which they of course blew that off.

        But He is everything. All the time. He’s not a crutch and He’s not just a phrase. And I never could understand that unless I met Him and He is just the greatest thing that can never be explained. ❤️

      • You have to live it to understand it.
        I was a tree planter living in a tent in the mountains for thirteen years. Whenever I tried to explain what it was like folks looked at me as if I was from another planet. It was the same with living and teaching in China. Many of the things I tried to explain to them they outright called me a liar.
        So I understand what you are going through. No matter how hard you try to explain it to them, they just will not get it.
