I REMEMBER… THEIDA

While visiting a friend’s mother at a nursing home, I noticed her new roommate, and we struck up a conversation.  Well, come to find out she was a Christian, and while we talked about this and that, she was trembling greatly all over, but it didn’t seem to bother her any - like she trembled all the time.  It bothered me though.  Shortly into our conversation, I asked what her name was, and she told me it was Theida.  I asked her what Theida meant, and she answered as she trembled, “It means a lot to me – I’ve had it all my life!” We had a good laugh on that one.  After a while I asked if I could pray for her as her condition was bugging me to no end, and she said ok.  So I prayed, and after the prayer, the trembling stopped,  her eyes were closed, and I thought she died she was so still.  “Great,” I thought.  “I prayed for someone to get healed in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and killed them instead!”  So I whispered, “Are you all right?”   And she replied she felt wonderful - and then so did I.   So that was the last I ever saw Theida, whose name meant a lot to her because she had it all her life.  It means a lot to me now too.

God loves you.  Read you Bible.

The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen
