Jo Dee Messina, a Billboard-topping country singer has shared an interesting testimony in which she assures Jesus Christ visited her. After this encounter, let her know the existence of a savior who loved her so much that came not only to the world to save her but also to her own house.
A few years ago, the singer was going through difficult times in her life. Diagnosed with cancer, financial anguishes, separated from her husband of 10 years, and single mom to her two sons, made her unable to tour.
Although her situation was getting worse, the love of God prevailed. In the midst of that situation she could see the power and love of God manifested.
“I was at an all-time low. I was trying to sustain a career. I had a lifestyle and a family and everything, all on my own, and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t. I was pulled way too thin and so, I was just standing on my porch one day, and Jesus Christ walked out and said, ‘She’s mine.’ I just knew it, in the middle of that, in the middle of my spirit and my soul, I’m like, and ‘that’s Jesus.'” Messina said.
“If you’ve walked my life in the last five years, it has not been a typical life. Not a lot of it goes out in press, which is great, because a lot of it’s painful, and a lot of it’s hurtful, and a lot of it’s scary,” Messina shared with PopCulture.com. “About five years ago, Jesus Christ walked onto my front porch and argued with me all day long. As real as I’m sitting in this seat, Jesus came to my front porch and he’s like, ‘She’s mine.’
Following the encounter, the country star ran next-door to her neighbor and asked for more information of the Christian messiah and, from that moment on, she surrendered her life to Jesus. Messina was so moved by her encounter that she decided to record a popular gospel song, “Reckless Love,” released her own version of it, and has been including it in her shows ever since.
“I know the stories,” Messina explained. “I know the Christmas and Easter. He was born on Christmas, died on Easter. You know what I mean? But I didn’t know Him. Just having that intimate relationship with God, and I’ll sit here right in front of you and tell you He loves you more than you ever even imagine.”
“This message needs to be heard across the board. We cannot format God,’ so I recorded it and I prayed that at some point there’s a major label that is brave enough to pick it up and release it because we just did a digital release of the song,” she maintained.
“I spent my entire career, my entire life glorifying myself. It’s time for Him. He gets the glory from this point on. When you are going through a hard time in your family situation and you are diagnosed with cancer, and you don’t know what’s going to lie around that corner, and you have the arms of Jesus there, holding you. You never want to walk away from it,” she concluded.
