Trusting God with my Life – Angela’s Story
I woke up one night around 2 am when I felt a sharp pain on the right side of my chest. The pain was so bad; I wondered if I should go to the hospital. I reached for my cell phone and found I could not move! I started praying to God and told Him that I was not ready to leave this earth now. I found myself thinking of my busy schedule and all of the plans I had made. I decided to bargain with God.
I asked God to let me live longer because I had to help a friend at work with her retirement papers, then my manager was going to be off because he left work sick the day before and I had to send out his reports. Then, God, I have a trip that I just paid for, so not now God, not now!
God whispered in my ear and said that my life was not mine to keep. I stopped bargaining with God and started to pray a different prayer.
My prayer became a desire to do anything or go anywhere that He would have me do or go. I realized that my life is totally His. I prayed to God until I fell asleep. I woke up a few hours later with no pain or any signs of ever having the illness. It was like a dream!
My life is now totally dedicated to God and to live my life as Jesus taught me to.
