I am truly on a mission for God

Updated on April 21, 2014

Where God Leads me

As a believer, I have asked Jesus to lead me, direct me and use me for all his needs, and allow me to do his work, and help his people. I had no idea where this would take me. It is always an amazing mission, but never a surprise. It's interesting how I am in the right place at the right time. There is just no way that this could all be just a coincidence. Stay with me as I will take you on a life tour that Jesus sponsored and tell me what you think. It all started with a few very scary wake up calls to get my undivided attention. I guess the Lord wanted to see if I was a true believer. The first started out so casual, at a Flea Market, we were vendors and had small children in tow. It was at a race track, with vendors sitting around the outside of the track, and no vehicles were allowed to drive around the track during Market hours. My Husband let our bored little boys venture across the track, to look at all the stands. I just happened to look up and there was my 4 year old coming back across the track, and just feet from him was a monster truck on the track coming right toward him! The truck was so tall he could not see my little guy. It was loud , but I yelled out to my little one "No, stop, and he thought I said come and stepped right out in front of the truck. My next words were "No Jesus, please don't let this happen". Then the Miracle happened. A large woman, maybe 300 pounds plus came form the crowd which was elbow to elbow, hundreds of people, picked my son up by the back of his shirt collar lifted him up and out of the way, sat him done, and poof, she was gone! I said to my husband a non believer did you see that! He said yes. I said that was an Angel, and answer to my quick prayer. He said "RIGHT". I said then where did she go? He said" oh, into the crowd."There was no possible way this huge woman could have gotten into the crowd, and in a split second! Immediately my son comes across and after I hugged him and was thanking Jesus for saving him, and sending an Angel I asked Cassidy my little one, if he knew what had just happened. He said I almost got hit by a big truck, but the lady saved me. I said did it hurt when she picked you up by your collar, he said no she had soft soft hands, I could hardly feel her. I said where did she go, he said I don't know she just disappeared. I told him she was an Angel, he said I thought she was. So that is how this all began. Jesus getting my attention, seeing if I was ready to go on a Mission for him to help his people. There was another eye opening event shortly after this. My 9 year old daughter was reading her treasured pocket Gideon bible to her younger siblings, when a huge metal farm hut fell off a truck right in front of our mini van. It was a calm day, no wind. It appeared that it was going to go right through our wind shield. All I could do was say Oh Dear Lord help us. With all the Children in the car (6) all looking on this huge metal hut reversed it's direction and sailed to the other side of the road! My daughter yells from the back, wow I was reading about Jesus protecting us, he sure did! Our Life has been full of so many rescues, miracles and blessings. I have committed my life Jesus 'mission what ever it may be or wherever it takes me. My next blog will share with you the work I have done, in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ

      Thank you so much Sparklea. Have you ever read the book, When God winks you. You should . I have bought and given away many copies, even to strangers I have helped letting them know I'm here because God sent me. It didn't just happen by change.

      Voted up, useful, awesome and beautiful! I am a Christian, and I was SO inspired with your story. I have taught non-credit courses at our community college titled "The Mystery Of Coincidences" because so much has happened to me in my lifetime that I, too, consider all from God. So nice to meet you Penny G and it is wonderful to encounter people on Hub Pages who believe in God. I can feel the Presence of God through your writing. God bless and thank you for sharing - I am certain your story will be uplifting and encouraging to many, many people. Sparklea :)

      What a beautiful story of God's Grace saving your son. Angles do exist on Earth and protect those who's time is not ready yet as they have much to do yet. God has saved me several times and I get on my knees and thank Him every day.

      Thank you so much for reading my Hub that came from my heart. My promise to God is to share all the experiences he presents to me each one, intended appeal to someone special. They are tools I use to save as many of his people as I can. To not spread the word of his works is to say I do not care if you have everlasting life. I shall see you in Heaven, My friend in in Christ.

      Thank you for sharing your experiences! These incidents are truly miraculous and awe-inspiring. Though I am a strong believer in God, I find myself worrying too much about so many things. I know I should not, as we don't need to worry if we have complete faith in God. Reading this article has set me thinking. Thanks for this wonderful post!

      A few years back I was coming back home accompanied by my 5 years old daughter. She crossed road alone suddenly to pray to the God in a temple. As a believer in God She had already been initiated to the daily rituals we followed. As she tried to return to me after 2-3 minutes I could find much to my horror a heavy loaded vehicle coming towards her and I had no way to save her in that precarious situation. I stopped my eyes and prayed to the almighty to save her from the clutches of death. More than my prayer perhaps my little daughter’s devotion had already touched the all powerful and she was saved miraculously as the vehicle screeched to a sudden halt while the driver was even wondering how that was possible!

      Thank you very much for sharing your experience. May God bless you.
