A Great Gift

Written By Nancy Roussel

I call it a gift, knowing that God is among me. As a young adult I have experienced somethings that even I couldn't explain to myself. I was going through some very difficult times in my life, and without me knowing I somehow forgot that God was still in my heart. This is a story that only a few know, the reason is everyone would think of me as insane.

One night as I lay in my bed, Not sleeping I had my first encounter with God. I am not a religious person but I have found some other way to keep God in my heart. As I layed in my room all of a sudden as I closed my eyes it went really dark and out of the blue a bright light apperared in front of me. There stood in my dream God. Who had brought forth his hands and reached out to me, as though he wanted me to follow him. All I could do was cry and How I knew this was God was because I had never felt a more peaceful but powerful feeling int he whole world. I felt evrey emotion tare through my body. I was only 15 at the time and never understood the reason he would show himself to me.

The next day I went to my mother and fell to her knees explaining to her the event that happened that night. That year a good freind of mine died. And I felt myself slip deeper in misery. I know some people don't believe in a OUIJA board but I myself have encountered in something that I can call a miracle. God has given me a gift to talk to my friend, and I believe in my heart and mind that this is him. Through the years, I try and recall back to that year when I had my encounter with God.. One day I was talking to a friend of mine, and I told her about this dream I had, I told her he walked on the water in my dream. And before she told me I never even knew about it. She told me in the bible God walks on water. When I told her I never heard about that before, i knew right then and there it was real.

My father has had an encounter with God himself, but he is a secretive man, but I know that God had come to me that night to open the doors to my life and to heaven. And for the ouija board my friends and God has brought me great inspiration and love to my life. They have proven to me angels are among my life, and they have proven to me they walk the earth that I walk apon. I hope my story has opened the minds and heart of those who don't believe, but I know that angels are among us, and God lives in my heart.

Zayna was given me by my friend who passed away. And through the ouija, God had given this name to me. I dont know the real meaning of this name, but what they told me was it was a name of love, a name of heaven, something so beautiful and peaceful. Zayna is now my nickname and it is special to me.
