This Is the Place for Me
Today, we're sharing a dream had by Sister Ozie B. Mathis, as recorded in the February 1954 issue of The Gospel News.
I am so happy, my heart is overflowed with joy to have such a great desire to serve my Saviour. Through a testimony of Sister Carlini, a dear friend of mine, and she gave that testimony to me. After she did, I tried to forget the wonderful news, but Jesus never leaves His children alone.
Not long after, about three days, I had a dream about The Church of Jesus Christ, and in the dream, my little girl and I went to The Church, and when we arrived there, the door was closed, but we heard singing and it was very soft. We walked to the door quietly, and pushed it ajar, and when I did, The Church lit up in pure gold, and at the piano was Sister Anna Carlini, and she looked so beautiful, and was playing a hymn, "Just a closer walk with Thee." My little girl and I walked quietly in and sat down, and I said, "O Lord, this is the place for me." The next Sunday I asked to be baptized, for the Lord had touched my very heart, and I knew this was the place for me.
Sisters and Brothers, I am so glad to hold my Banner high in the name of Jesus Christ. I want all of you wherever you be to pray for me, that I may be strong in The Church of Jesus Christ, and I will remember you in prayer as God gives me strength.
Joy in the Gospel
Did today's experience remind you of the fresh joy that filled your heart when you first learned of the gospel? If you have a testimony that you'd like to thank God for, we'd love to hear it and share it on a future Miracle Monday here on the blog.
