Maybe it’s time to take a break from celebrity news and talk about my experience for now.    Celebrities get enough publicity, I don’t.  LOL!

I don’t know about y’all but I will ask the question anyway.  “Has anyone of you encountered a difficult situation in your life that there was no one whom you know could help you get through it?”    I have.  Not once.  Many times.

You see, I have encountered impossible situations in my lifetime and if I didn’t know any better, or wasn’t raised the way I was raised by my parents and grandmother, I probably wouldn’t know where and whom to go for help.  The one event that I can remember was when I was living in Los Angeles.  I had encountered a hopeless situation and in my despair, I called the person whose wisdom is boundless.  I called my eldest sister.  I explained to her the situation that I am in and what normally would come out of her lips would be a solution and comforting words that would keep me calm and collected were absent at this time.  I had hoped that she would have the magical answer and I will feel safe and secure again.  This time, her answer was, “I don’t know how to help you.  I simply don’t know.”

That’s when I knew that I was in a grave situation that not even my most trusted adviser couldn’t solve.  I was in despair.  I had no one else to turn to.

But my upbringing taught me something else.  I was taught how to pray.  And I was not taught to pray only when all else fails.  I was taught to pray before ALL else fail.

I found myself kneeling fervently inside my studio apartment in Torrance, CA.   I turned to God.  I told him that I don’t know what could save me from the situation but I was lifting it up to Him.  I am taking my hands off of the situation and handing it over to Him.  I was in tears.

Within a couple of weeks, my problem was solved.  Every fear and consequence that would have accompanied the problem went away.  I will never forget it.  That time, I knew that I have someone to go to no matter what the situation is.  It was an assurance a child of God could only hope for.

I have been blessed with so many blessings that I rarely complain about my life.  I have a life that allows me to do whatever I please.  I am healthy overall, and I have friends and family who care for me.  There’s nothing that I should complain about.

Most recently, I came across another situation that could have gotten me in a mess that no one would wish to be in.  I sought help any which way I can and no one can do anything to help me.  I remembered that solitary moment in Torrance when I knelt down and prayed.  So this time, I prayed.  I asked people to pray with me.  I reached out on social media to everyone I knew to pray with me.  They all promised and they all prayed with me.

The night before I was to receive the news whether the situation will turn bad or good, I had a dream.  I dreamed that a multitude of people whom I don’t even know were praying for me.  476 thousand people to be exact.  They were all praying for me.  I was overwhelmed with joy.  Then, I woke up.

When I was handed the news, it was better than anyone could ever hope for.  The situation turned from worse to excellent.  I was shocked.  I was in awe.  I couldn’t speak.

“Whenever two or three are gathered in My name, there I am in their midst.”

I believe it.

I am grateful.

Thank you God!
