“I got hit by a car. I went flying up in the air and almost landed on the spiked hood ornament, missing by inches, and landing in a ditch. If I hadn’t have gotten saved 2 weeks prior and I had died I would’ve gone to hell. I was 12 years old. There was a shed near my house where a woman had a bible school. I got saved in a shed. No preacher, just a woman with her bible. Grief can cause us to sink down into a deep pit. My husband died in July 2021 and then my son died in September 2021. I didn’t have enough time to grieve my husband before I lost my son. That was the most depressed I had ever been. I felt like I was in this water and I was sinking. I couldn’t breathe and I couldn’t come back up. I started to see a light at the surface. Suddenly, a hand reaches down and pulls me back up. That hand is Jesus. To get out of that pit we must rely on God. I was really dependent on my husband. When everything happened, I had to trust God. I heard a preacher say once that Jesus is the husband to the widow. I don’t know what people do if they don’t have Jesus in their life. The Holy Spirit comforts us in our lowest valley. There was a scripture that got me through: 1 Thessalonians 4: 13 ‘Do not grieve as those who have no hope.’ I had to give up the grief. You better get to know Jesus. He is the one who will get you through whatever you are going through. Just trust Him. We just need to tell Him we are sorry. Just talk to Him. We don’t need an elaborate speech to be saved. Just open up to Him. And please be saved. I want to see as many as I can in Heaven. If you fear dying you better talk to God about it. I know where I am going. I have that promise. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. If he finds even a crack in our armor he can slip in there. My grief had caused a crack but God got me through that. We need to keep our armor tight. My favorite scripture is Romans 12: 1-2. It says, ‘Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.’ When we become transformed, we become a new person. With the Holy Spirit, He convicts me to stay with Him. My name is Crystal and I surrender.”
