Recharged by God’s Love and Mercy

Rommel at WorkThursday 17th Feb 2017, a normal busy day for me at the construction site, as a project manager I need to do my daily site visits and inspections. Around 5:30 pm during my last construction site walk, suddenly I felt tiredness and exhaustion and fell on a 3 meter wide open trench. The first thought that came on my mind was “Lord Jesus save me”. Suddenly I felt that fatal hard fall became easy as my safety helmet hit the ground first protecting my head and my face, during that time I know God heard my plea and sent his angels to catch me.

Rommel at Hospital I was rushed to the site clinic with bruises in my arms, body, face and a left swollen eye which was not able to see. I heard the first aid nurse singing Psalm 32:7 and Psalm 56:4” You are my hiding place, you always fill our hearts of songs if deliverance “Whenever I am afraid I will trust in You” That song calmed me and eased my pain, Again I know Jesus was with me.
I was taken to the Hospital Emergency Room, kept in the ICU and had a series of eye test and MRI. The next morning, the doctor visited me and told that no need to worry all tests conducted were fine, only a surgery below my left eye was required. It was indeed a miracle that I was alive with no serious head injury.

Praise God, I had a successful surgery and was discharged after three days. A week after surgery, I was there standing, serving, singing in the Dubai Area assembly and proclaiming Gods greatness as I was requested to be one of the sharers. The same week we had all the preparation ready for our upcoming CLP which had 18 couples graduated by mid-May.

Rommels FamilyOne CFC brother told me “take a rest we will take care of our activities “, and I responded “No Bro I will continue and be with you “, he asked again” Bro just wondering what keeps you going?” I again replied “it’s the Love and Faith in God, it’s like a Duracell battery it keeps going and going and going, it will never drain like a normal battery as the word of God, the bible scriptures which we read every day is the one recharging our batteries (our faith) and making us strong”.
