Jesus Is Always With Us

Jesus is always with us

On February 22, 2021, I had three seizures, they were both unexpected and traumatizing. I grew up having seizures but had been seizure-free and medication-free for 27 years. I had a headache all day and at about 8 pm I was feeling ill and called my husband Jim in the room. When he got to my side I was in a seizure and unresponsive. He said my breathing became so shallow that he wasn’t sure if I was breathing at all, so he called 911. Once I came out of the seizure he explained what happened, and I was hit with so much grief because it had been seizure-free for so long. I had been free of childhood seizures for 27 years. The paramedics and police officers came out, checked me over, and said my vitals were normal. We went to bed and about midnight I woke Jim up again because I felt another seizure coming on and by the time he turned the light on and got to my side of the bed I was unresponsive again. He called 911 and they came back out. My vitals were normal but they recommended that we go to the ER to be sure that nothing else was wrong.

 When you have a seizure things are confusing after you come to, and you don’t remember a lot of what happens.  As I laid in my bed watching five more strangers in my bedroom and feeling confused God spoke to me he said, “I’m right here beside you”,  and he was, Jesus was sitting right next to me, I saw him! He was beautiful, he glowed and was wearing a white robe, He had shoulder-length dark hair, all I saw was his back and he glowed a bright white light. The peace that spread over me was intense.

This was a gift to me, a gift to be used in the next several weeks as I healed and recovered from this trauma. On the way home from the hospital I had another seizure in the car. It was not as strong and the first two and didn’t last as long.

Do you know that Jesus is right beside you at all times? He is and he wants us to remember this.

Jesus is always right by our side, sometimes we don’t feel his presence, sometimes he is silent, but he is always there.

It’s through the tough times and the broken times that He teaches us to rely on him through at all times. I have followed Jesus for twenty one years and I am still learning this. I believe that I have experienced this to share with others and I hope that it blesses you.

Thankfully I have not had anymore seizures since that night.

Let’s be friends!

  1. Thank you for sharing this post. My youngest son had seizures and you very clearly described the situation and aftermath. I am thankful that he and you have been seizure free now. And the song, so appropriate for all of us going through the hard stuff and those of us caring for those going through it all. There was Jesus! AMEN.

    I also love the QR Code to link to the song as I sit here. I didn’t know that was possible but you have brightened my day in more ways than you will know. May God continue to bless you, your family and your ministry.

    1. Jackie, thank you for your comment, it brightened my day too! I am so happy to hear that your son is seizure-free as well, it’s such a scary thing to go through! I will be praying that he stays seizure-free.
      Blessings,
      Mary
