The Night Jesus Came To Visit
By: Abby B. Conley
I was either five or six years old (I can't remember for sure). I shared
a bedroom with my little sister at the time. I had been sleeping.
When I awoke, I was sitting straight up in my bed. There stood Jesus
Christ, just above my sister's bed (her bed was right next to mine).
A peace came over my young body. Although I never met Him before, I
immediately knew it was Jesus! He did not speak to me out of His
mouth. He spoke His thoughts into my mind. He simply told me not to
argue with my sister. My thoughts raced, I wanted to explain why I

I then became a child of the streets in Phoenix, Arizona. Many bad things happened to me during this time in my life. I had no home, no money, food was hard to come by, and I remember not wanting to live during most of those long years. My parents had thrown me away, like trash. They simply could not be bothered with a child they did not want. My spirit broke.
When I was 16 years old, the Phoenix court system had heard about my situation, and I became a ward of the court. I was placed into a foster home until I was 18 years old. I would grow to an adult, still broken. I abused drugs, and alcohol. I tried very hard to take my life on two occasions.
I learned some things about Jesus Christ in the five seconds I spent with Him as a child. As I grew even older, I often meditated on that visit. It turned out to be what fixed the brokenness. Here is what I learned:
