I had an amazing experience on the night of 5th of March 2008. I was home alone, channel surfing and I find a Billy Graham broadcast, originally on Memorial Day in San Francisco, 1958. Billy was preaching about God saving Noah, Job, and Daniel. Billy is preaching and at one point, he looks right at the camera, I mean right into it. I swear he’s looking right at me, it was so personal! Even though I had already given my life to Jesus Christ, I prayed along with Billy that night, asking for forgiveness, rededicating my life to Jesus.
Billy was preaching in 1958, yet here he was in my living room in 2008, getting me to pray with him. He had no way of knowing then, in ’58, that 50 years later he would come into my life and reach me. You think God continues to work through Billy Graham? I know He does! I got to see and hear Billy at the Rose Bowl in California in 2004 and I cherish the experience. I have a large picture book of Billy that stays on my book shelf facing out so I can see Billy’s face and be reminded of a dedicated man of God.
Thank you Billy, so much.
