I suffer from night terrors. I had a rough period in my life where I questioned God and doubted Him a lot because of them. I would complain saying, “Why did you give me this? All I have been to You is a faithful servant and I’m stuck with this thing that really is not pleasant at all…”
I really couldn’t understand it. One night it was really bad and I just cried out to God and He gave me this overwhelming peace that can’t be explained, which continued every night after that. A couple of days later, I went out with some friends and there was this new girl. We got to talking and after a while the topic of night terrors came about. She suffers from them too. I got the chance to share with her how God gives me peace in the midst of the terrors. She wanted the same thing. I prayed with her and she accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior. If God had not let me go through those terrors, maybe I would have never had the chance to share Jesus with her. I will never doubt God again because He really does work in the most mysterious ways, and because of that we have a new sister in Christ!
