So the Devil tried to shake me up a bit this morning…..
I woke up to the feeling of a heavy hand pushing on my head.
I was so terrified, I didn’t even know what to do. I scrambled to remember my favourite song “In Christ Alone” and to my horror, I could barely remember the first line. As soon as I started struggling to remember the words I hummed the tune and I felt the hand let go immediately and I heard something slump to the ground. As soon as the hand let go I felt my whole body go hot and cold at the same time, on the inside…I can barely explain it, it felt like hours but I think it was only a few minutes. I also felt so heavy and I couldn’t move, but I kept repeating the one line over and over “In Christ alone, my hope is found, he is my light, my strength, my song.” The more I kept singing it, the more the words came back to me and I managed to get through the whole song.
I repeated the song a few times, and I was too scared to open my eyes because I felt something hot breathing on my face, but I just kept going with the song regardless and all of the sudden the breathing stopped and I felt light, so I opened my eyes and scrambled out of bed and threw open my blinds and saw that the sun had just finished rising.
I am so thankful that the Lord protected me and even though I didn’t feel his presence, or hear his voice or anything, just the fact that whatever that thing was, it let me go the second I started singing about my security in Christ and his victory over death.
I’m still pretty shaken up, but I know that my God is with me and that he holds me in his hands.
