"Twice in One Day"

"Twice in One Day"

I went through a heart-wrenching divorce that left me feeling very alone and frightened of the unknown future ahead of me. I had four teenage children at home and I needed some help – a lot of help! As I was talking to my counselor about my fears and hopelessness, he looked me straight in the eyes, and as tears welled up he simply said, “Jesus loves you and is with you.” I immediately felt calm and peaceful that I was not alone in this journey.

I came home after my session with my dear counselor, and my niece, who was three years old at the time, was there with my sister. My sister told me that just minutes before I arrived home, out of the blue, my niece said, “Mommy, Jesus loves Becky”. Twice in one day I felt the love and comfort of Jesus Christ.

That happened many years ago, and I look back and see how the Savior truly was with me and helped me to where I am today. I love Him and look forward to the day where I can wrap my arms around Him and thank Him personally for being with me during the hardest time of my life and also during the joyful times. I learned if we reach out to Him, He will reach back to us and help us individually with what we are in need of at that time.
