Subject: personal religious experience

In 1967 I was 33 years old, married, with 4 children and living in Chapel Hill, Texas. About 10 miles east of Tyler. We were members of a very small Baptist church and I taught Sunday School. I believed in God but just did not understand how Jesus fit into the picture. The time this event happened was the week before Easter and I was very concerned that I did not know enough about Jesus to teach my class Easter Sundy. I prayed Monday night before I went to bed that God would explain to me about Jesus. In my prayer I told God that I figured the best time to answer my prayer was in the morning just as I started to wake since that would normally be the best time to remember my dreams.

Well, the next morning nothing happened. That night I said the same prayer and reminded God that this was my second request. I don't think that I ever doubted that He would answer me. Well, the next morning still nothing. The third night I said the same prayer and tried to explain to God that I just really needed this information since I was supposed to teach about His Son that Sunday.

The next morning I awoke and sat up on the side of my bed. At that instant the whole bedroom was replaced by "Light". I cannot describe the light just as others cannot describe it. It was just awesome, all enveloping light that overwhelmed me by its brilliance. I was in the light but it was so brilliant I could not look at all of it. Then in my mind appeared the answer to my prayer. The words -JESUS IS THE FOUNTAIN HEAD- entered my mind. Not heard. Not thought. Not telepathy. Pure communication from ?? God or his angel I don't know. Mydictionary gave the definition of fountainhead as "The origional source from which a stream flows".

From that moment I have never doubted that Jesus is the Son of God and that He is a personal savior to all 9of us. I have never doubted that there is an afterlife nor have I ever doubted that God has a plan for each of us. In times of turmoil and strife I never worry to much because I KNOW.

I should have finished what happened. After I received the message the light was gone immediately. It has never happened since but, then it is not neccesary. I GOT the message. It changed me for the better more than anything that has ever happened to me before or since.
