He Truly Is My Saviour

Happy Saturday Everyone!
Allow me to share an experience that have tested my Faith. This story is not strictly for the Christians only. Even if you are an atheist, you are welcome to hear this story. A little background about me, I have been raised a Catholic, grew up in an Islamic country and then moved to another Country that supported different kinds of religion; Islam, Buddhism, Taoism, Christianity, Hinduism etc. So I have been exposed to different kinds of beliefs and I don't judge.
Something I have been guilty of as Christian is the inability to be consistent. I was taught to say my prayers in the morning, before each meals, at 6pm and before going to bed. I was also taught to be thankful to the Lord all the time. While I have always been thankful to the Lord, I just wasn't able to make an effort to thank Him. Also, it's been years since I've last attended a Mass. If anything else, I had made a conscious effort not to attend one for various reasons. Sadly but true, I also have a bad habit of only acknowledging the Lord if I feel Blessed but often times questioned his existence if everything goes wrong. I thought to myself that If I do good and continue to acknowledge his presence then I'm doing what is expected of me.
A few days ago, however, I have experienced something that I didn't know could and would dawn on me. I met an undesirable and unexplainable circumstance that surprised me while on my sleep. (I choose to REFUSE or acknowledge it's unearthly existence) BUT I was woken up by a force that lifted my upper body that undeniably sent shivers to my back and arms. I also felt like my head had turned into a balloon that's expanding. My first instinct was to yell at my sister who I thought was the reason behind it but as I was about to do so, I was unable make a single sound. My throat felt dry and all I could produce were heavy breathing sound. I chose to ignore the sound I heard although it was cunningly similar to that of my sister when she calls my name. I struggled but was able to mutter "Our Father....." in almost a choking way. Struggling to complete the prayer, I continued "Our Father..." this time slightly louder and have pushed through to continue with the rest "who art in Heaven. Hallowed be thy name..." the sensation on my arms were numbing but I proceeded to Pray. I, then, repeatedly proclaimed, "I BELIEVE IN GOD, THE FATHER ALMIGHTY. CREATOR OF HEAVEN AND EARTH...." Then that's when, I felt warmer, my upper body was then rested back to where it was. I continued to pant heavily while praying over and over again the "Apostle's Creed." I felt safe and protected. I was not at all scared but rather confused. Imagine being woken up by something unexplainable. As soon as I have gathered myself, I went straight to my sisters room only to find her sleeping. She woke up due to the noises I made upon entering. I told her everything and I even cried. I cried because when God says, "you are my child and I love you" he meant it. Despite my actions of forgetting Him and only remembering Him when it is convenient for me, He was there to protect me. He was there to comfort me. He was there to help me when I am in need.
Some of you may claim that my sister might have pulled a prank on me or someone else. Before you claim that, first of all, NO ONE has access to my place but my sister who I live with and is sleeping in the other room. NO ONE is capable of lifting me that way I was lifted because there is NO ROOM by my headrest to allow anyone to do the deed.
What's my takeaway on this experience? Well it doesn't matter who you believe in; Jesus, Allah, Buddha, Brahma.. just to name a few. Know that there is a higher being and He is REAL. This is just one of many testaments. I thank that "experience" (but wish for it to NEVER happen again) for opening my eyes. For making me BELIEVE. For making me LOVE HIM even more. For showing that there is nothing to fear with HIM by your side.
If you have made it this far reading my story, THANK YOU. I wish and pray for you to be continuously blessed. May you have Peace, LOVE and happiness. May God Bless you and the people around you.
