[ Miracles ]

Back from the Brink

I was 33 years old at the time. My husband had left me for another woman and I was devastated. Although I didn't know what was happening at the time, I sank into a deep, deep depression.

I had four children at home to care for, but I would get up and have coffee, then go back to bed. I wore the same nightgown and never took a bath. The two older kids were left to take care of the two younger ones.

I believe that my neighbor came over and cooked them a meal here and there; otherwise, my daughter handled the cooking and feeding. I did not do anything but lay there.

When my children came home from school, I would feel so guilty about being neglectful that I would sink deeper and deeper into a black hole of hell.

After two weeks of this, I decided one particular night to kill myself. It never occurred to me to wonder what the kids would think or do once I was gone for good.

Suddenly an electric shock went through my body.

Then I heard a voice in the corner of the room say: "I am God, I am here."

I had no idea what to think. In the confusion of it all, I remember being shocked twice more and the same words were spoken, but louder.

I opened my eyes and saw nothing but the color purple. I recall saying, "That is so beautiful."

Then it was over.

I felt so wonderful, I cannot describe it to this day. I jumped out of bed, a new person. I cleaned up the house, did the wash, did whatever normal people do.

I am now 66 years old and remember when God came to me like it was yesterday. I am so grateful that God wanted me to be healed mentally, for there was no one to help me.

Since that time, I have sought after God and learned His truth. I love God above all things and know that He is always with me.
