JESUS HAS GIVEN ME THE SIGN
(The Patricia Yagmurkaya Story)
By: Patricia Yagmurkaya
My life had been a series of ups and downs; marriages and divorces -- it had been going nowhere. Can you identify?
I was raised as a Roman Catholic as a child. I attended catechism classes every Sunday.
It wasn't until I became very ill that I prayed to the Lord Jesus Christ to come into my life and show me what I was doing wrong and help me to overcome my illness and make me well again.
That same week my sister-in-law called me on the phone and had asked me to join her and my brother at a community fair that her church was going to. I instantly told her "no," mainly because I didn't want anyone to see me. I had had a cyst that had grown in my chin and needed to have it surgically removed.
As a result of the surgery, I had to have my bottom seven teeth removed. During the surgery one of my front teeth were also chipped. My self confidence had gone down and I didn't want to go out in public. Due to no medical or dental insurance I was unable to have my teeth put back in or my chipped tooth repaired.
My sister-in-law was still very insistent about my attending this community fair church gathering, and I finally gave in and told her "OK."
She told me that she would pick me up that day. I live in New Jersey and they live in Pennsylvania. She had told me we would be attending a church service that morning before going to the community fair. I told her that was fine. I was very nervous about attending church service at her church; remember I was a Roman Catholic.
She came to pick me up and I was so nervous and scared. She assured me her church was very inspirational and the people were all full of love and that no one would look at me funny, but that they would hug and invite me in with loving arms.
I got to the church and it was beautiful. I went in with my brother and sister-in- law and we sat in the front row. The service began, and I was blown away! The feeling that came over me was as if Jesus Christ was in every part of my body. I cried and cried and cried. My brother was standing next to me and he put his arms around me and said, "Sister, everything is going to be okay. God is with you."
The sermon began, and to my amazement the pastor talked about pain and suffering -- the pain and suffering I had gone through for the past two years is beyond description. I asked myself: why did the pastor choose to talk about this sermon on the day that I was attending the service?
My answer came to me a little later -- Jesus Christ was moving my life.
Church service ended and we went out to the fair grounds. I was approached by a gentleman named Daniel who had asked me if it was okay for him to tell a story to me that had happened to him that morning. I said, "Sure."
He proceeded to tell me that while he was getting dressed for church service a voice had told him to find his anointing oil and to take it to the church service with him. There would be someone in need of help that day. He said he looked all over for that oil and finally found it in his top drawer. He said he put it into his pocket and proceeded to go to church.
He told me, "As I pulled into the driveway and saw you, that same voice told me, 'This is the woman you need to help today.'"
He said that he didn't know what was wrong with me but he knew it was bad because the voice had told him it was bad.
He asked me, "If you don't mind my asking, what is wrong with you?"
I was caught a little off guard, but I told him that I had had a cancerous cyst growing in my chin.
He began crying . . . then asked me if he could anoint me with the anointing oil.
I responded, "Absolutely."
It didn't end there. The church was holding a prayer healing event for someone that day at the fair that they felt by the Spirit of God that needed it -- they just didn't know who needed a healing at first.
Eventually they came up to me and asked me if they could have a prayer healing for me.
All I could do was cry. I was so overcome with emotion that God had singled me out as the one they were to pray for.
During the prayer for healing, they laid their hands on me. I grew very hot and I felt like electricity was over my entire body. The feeling was overwhelming, and I cried and cried and cried some more.
After the prayer for healing was finished . . . I went outside to get some fresh air and ponder all that had happened, I was so overwhelmed with the presence of God.
I looked up to the sky and I said, "Jesus -- thank you so much for showing me so much love and grace, and thank you for placing your hand on me during the prayer for my healing."
Then I asked Jesus, "Do you have a plan for me? Do you want me to serve you, and spread your gospel throughout the world?"
To my amazement ... the black clouds that were in the sky came together and formed a perfect cross! I was in complete awe!
I told my brother and sister-in-law what had happened and my sister-in-law confirmed that this is God's calling for me.
Since that day, I have chosen to become a reborn (born again) Christian. I have been ordained and I have entered courses to learn all about the Bible, Jesus Christ, and his gospel and teachings. God has enabled me to earn my PhD, and I am looking forward to starting my own ministry called: The Everlasting Light Of Jesus Christ, which will also be a testimonial website for anyone desiring to share their personal miracles of Jesus Christ in their lives.
I cannot tell you the warmth and love I feel from Jesus Christ in my home and in my life everyday. It is a delight and a miraculous feeling. I do not intend to stop here. I intend to strive on to someday plant my own church and open the doors to my own congregation and preach the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ to all.
