When country music star Jo Dee Messina was at an “all-time low” in her life, she says Jesus visited her on her front porch! She is currently battling a cancer diagnosis, but has unwavering faith because of her encounter with Jesus five years ago.
This clearly shows us that God still moves supernaturally in the world today! Hebrews 13:8 says, “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today and forever.” And we know it is because of His love for us that He reveals Himself to us.
Jo Dee Messina on God’s love
Jo Dee Messina says, “Jesus Christ walked onto my front porch and argued with me all day long. As real as I’m sitting in this seat, Jesus came to my front porch and He’s like, ‘She’s mine.'”
She continued saying, “I was trying to sustain a career. I had a lifestyle and a family and everything, all on my own, and I couldn’t do it. I couldn’t. I was pulled way too thin and so, I was just standing on my porch one day. And Jesus Christ walked out and said, ‘She’s mine.’ I just knew it, in the middle of that, in the middle of my spirit and my soul, I’m like, ‘That’s Jesus.'”
