One of my closest friends talked to me about the time when she invited her friends to come over to their house. According to her, one of her friends can see ghosts. She told me that according to her friend, there is a particular road in the village where we live that is haunted. When she told me that, my eyes became so teary, I almost cried in fear. I told her not to tell me which road that her friend is referring to, I refuse to know about it. But no matter how hard I tried to stop her, it seems that she is really determined to disclose it to me. She then voluntarily told me that none of the 3 roads that we usually walk on is haunted. I felt relived and so I uttered thanks to GOD for that. But the conversation about it does not end there, despite of my effort to stop her from talking about it, she once again volunteered the information that it is one of the roads that is not usually taken by most people in our village happens to be the haunted road that her friend is referring to. I have an idea in mind as to which road it is but I refuse to believe so, I refuse to scare myself.
We finally got off the jeepney that we are riding. On our way home, while we are walking, I am feeling kinda scared ( and paranoid!) knowing that we are going to walk on the road near to the one that I suspect is haunted. I tried to brush it off my mind so I shifted my attention to the group of people that we see who were dancing that time. Then we continue to walk towards our respective houses. And then we finally reach their house, we kissed each other before we separated. I was all alone then and I still feel a little scary as I walk towards home. I stared at the road that leads to another side of the block where we live and yes it was dark! I must admit that I still feel a little scary that time. But as I walk closer towards the gate of our house, I started to feel calm and safe knowing that I am almost home. When I opened the gate, I started to feel glad because I told my self that there are no bad spirits in our house and should there be any, they cannot harm me in any manner. I believe that GOD is always looking after me to ensure that I am safe from harm. I remember that in the bible there is this verse that says:
We know that whosoever is born of God sinneth not; but he that is begotten of God keepeth himself, and that wicked one toucheth him not.
– 1 John 5:18 (King James Version)
This experience made me realized further that I am really lucky to be called as one of GOD’s servants inside HIS house, the true Church of GOD.
I just celebrated my 9th year anniversary as a Christian. This experience, I count as a blessing and I hope that there will be more blessings to come as I head towards my 10th GOD willing.
