“Then they laid hands on them, and they received the Holy Spirit.”  Acts 8:17

After the Lord healed me from alcoholism, I was really feeling great!  I went to visit my daughter who lived in Illinois.  She had made plans to go on a weekend retreat and included me in her weekend.  I agreed to go on the retreat weekend and never realized it would be life changing for me.

I was not prepared for people around me to raise their hands when they sang and prayed or for people to be slain in the Spirit.  I wasn’t sure I agreed with all that was going on, but by the next day, I was asked if I wanted to invite Jesus to come into my heart and be my personal Savior.  I said: “Yes!”  The group laid hands on me and prayed, and I did receive Jesus into my heart by the power of His Holy Spirit.

What joy I had!  I cried the rest of the weekend from joy.  God also healed terrible swelling and pain in my hands from arthritis, and I was slain in the Spirit.  I was so filled with joy I could have flown home without the airplane.  Praise God!  Have you every invited Jesus into your heart?  “For as many as received Him, He gave power to become children of God.”  (John 1:12)
