How to Crawl

Location: N/A

By: C.G.Collier

6 years ago,I went out to get my newspaper one morning and the paper was under a Magnolia tree. I went out and slipped while trying to get it over the roots etc..My ankle broke badly. It was completley twisted and the pain so unbearable. i could not get up as I was on a hill,grass and I surely could not stand. I tried to crawl but kept slipping. I looked for anyone..no one. I prayed in Jesus name to help. Nothing. I prayed again and said I believe in You with all my heart and I know You exist please help. An Angel came. Huge and above me. She asked me to crawl and I said i tried. She said crawl and suddenly her left wing shrouded me. There was no pain . I felt like a lamb or little child being led. i felt like I was in a bubble sort of. The angel had a woman's voice I had never heard before. I noticed for whatever reason in that moment she had no emotion. She had love and power,but no emotion. She led me over sticks and rocks and a limstone rocky old patio to the back door. Once I got to the phone to call 911 she left and the pain returned. Whenever I feel far away I remember this. When I was in the hospital I noticed i had no scratches where I had crawled..just the ankle. Last April, My ankle broke ( same one..same yard ) again. I had no pain until the xray but I did not witness an angel. I yelled for help and a deaf man across the street ( a big street ) heard me. That is a miracle. Yes they do exist. YES ! My faith was tested the first time and I prayed honestly in the Name of Jesus. True. What an awesome God <3

Irenaeus of Lyon wrote these words - The glory of God gives life; those who see God receive life. For this reason, God-who cannot be grasped, comprehended, or seen-allows Himself to be seen, comprehended, and grasped by men, that He may give life to those who see and receive Him. It is impossible to live without life, and the actualization of life comes from participation in God, while participation in God is to see God and enjoy His goodness.
