I Want to Go Home

“I’m glad I’m still here.”

I Want to Go Home

Krista:  I was born with Spina Bifida. When l was about three months old (maybe younger), doctors told my parents I would never walk.  At two years old, I started walking. Now I can say that God was telling me to get up and start walking. As I got older (about age nine), I started having problems with my right foot, which ended up getting amputated due to infection.

I felt like God was telling me to keep my eyes open on Him and not to worry.
As I was just about to turn ten years old, I went to Heaven and met Jesus for the first time. I saw through His eyes and I saw Him and a lamb. He said He wasn’t ready for me to come home and at the moment He said that, I woke up and realized that my story isn’t going to be over until He says it’s the end of my life.
No matter what I go through and what I face in life, He’s always going to be my shepherd and He’s guiding me through the right path.

Now, at 30 years old, I’m glad I’m still here because God tells us that He’s coming back and we have to be ready for Him. He made me realize that I wasn’t ready to go home and He’s still working on my life as He is on others. I’m praying for people to pray and repent and get ready for Jesus to come back. My mom passed away 2 years ago, and I was going through depression and wanting her. Again, I felt God’s hands around my heart, telling me it’s going to be ok and that He’s coming back.

I don’t want to be left behind. I want to go home.

“He’s coming back.”
