You were hibbing testimonies about God speaking to you. Not sure if I shared this with you. Jan 9 2014. A year before I got legionnaires. Soooooo This waa very special day to me that I wanted to share. It’s a bit long, but i think we’ll worth the read. I was living out at Buckeye Lake, outside of Columbus Ohio This is what happened. At 11:00 I was home alone. So I walk into the kitchen and made a sandwich. After eating it, I’m Standing in the living room. and God tells me I’m going to have a heart attack. Ok. I know what you’re thinking. But I am here to tell you God told me I was going to have a heart attack. Sooooo. I’m kind of laughing but I’m for sure listening cause I HAD NO PAIN NO SIGNS. While standing in the room after hearing God. I’m thinking, what do I do. Do I call a squad Do I drive to Newark to a hospital Do I drive to Mount Carmel East, 1 hour away, cause its close to my boys. Now i get a window of time. 2 hours Soooo I get dressed, blue jeans and a tee shirt. Jump in a car and head to Mount Carmel East. So I’m driving. Thinking. Wow. God told me I was gong to have a heart attack. I have absolutely no signs of a heart attack. So I’m driving, Not scared, had that smile you know and I don’t know what to think. I get a phone call from a brother, Donny Blowers, he says, what’s up Mers. I said Donny. You ain’t going to believe this but I think I’m going to have a heart attack. And I’m laughing about it on the phone with him. I was just on 70 East jumping on 270 North. So I told him where I was going and said I’ll talk to ya soon. I gots to say this story just makes me smile. So I run the red light at the turn in to Mount Carmel East. Later I have to fight the camera that saw me do it. So I drive to the emergency room parking. No spots. End up parking like a football field away. Start walking. I get the the emergency desk and there’s 2 people in front. So I wait. It’s my turn, the nurse asks, what’s up, and I said I’m think I’m going to have a heart attack in about 15 min. She said you look fine. Well they take me right thru the doors. Had a seat in a chair. And with in 15 min. FULL BLOWN HEART ATTACK If I had not had listened and left later then I did. I would of died on 270 East. Because when the heart attack hit. I couldn’t open my eyes and the pain was unbearable. So I’m in the hospital room, recovering from the stents they had to put in me. Friend’s are stopping by and I’m recovering pretty good. So the doc comes in and says, how you feeling there Mr Mercer. I said pretty good, other than I got this tooth that’s been bugging and hurting lately. So jokingly I said, sure would be nice if you all could pull that. Can you believe it. 2 days later they put me under and got rid of that tooth. It was like a one stop check up for me there. LOL Ok. It gets a little better and funnier. So I get released from the hospital on January 15, 2014. ONE DAY BEFORE MY BIRTHDAY I get back out to the house, at Buckeye Lake, which happens to be right next door to the VFW, VFW draws numbers every Wednesday and Friday night. Soooooo Now I’ve been home for an hour or so. My birthday is the next day. My girlfriend says I should stop by the VFW for the drawing. I said I just got home an hour ago and really didn’t want to go. Thought for a sec and figured I wouldn’t be there very long. So I walk next door. I’m at the VFW. I order 1 beer and not really knowing anyone in there I’m just kind of standing by the back bar, sipping on a beer where they pull the tickets. Well there’s 2 drawings this night. A payout of $2,400 and for $5,400. So they have a young woman come up to pull a number out of the container for the $2,400. No one was there with that number and that member had not paid for their number that night. Soooo Next, they have this young girl, maybe 12 years old and she pulls the number for the $5,400 drawing. Well there is 4 numbers on the ticket that are being read and the first 3 numbers are mine. I’m thinking, there is no way this happening. And you know what. That young girl pulled my number and I about fell over. Everyone was coming up and congratulating me and I was about to fall over. All I could think about was, I can’t believe this. I never win this stuff. I told some of them that I just got home a couple hours ago from the hospital from having a heart attack. And jokingly I said I feel like someone is trying to have me have another heart attack. Moral of the story. God spoke to me and I listened. He may have spoken before but I was to busy or didn’t wait to listen. I find myself now always trying to listen. You know, I don’t know what God has in store for me. All I know is I’ve passed death over 12 times and he’s keeping me around for something. Just thought I’d share with Johnny Still trying to make it out there.
