Converted from Fear to Peace

Updated: Apr 21

Please take your time to read Mrs. Seema Bhervia's story. When Seema responded to my post on feature requests, just like many others, I emailed her and started connecting with her. However, little did I know who was behind this connection. One day, I hope to go more into detail about the revelations of our connection, but for now, please take a look at how our Lord, Jesus Christ, carries us in the palm of His hands.

I was born in Johannesburg, South Africa. We were a family of five; my parents, my elder brother, a younger sister, and me, Seema the middle born. I grew up following family traditions.

Growing up, I always had what I called the sixth sense, a sense of knowing that I wasn’t alone. I had a feeling of something being present or that I was being watched. Often, the feeling I had was dark and fearful. After my brother passed on in 1995 I was introduced to a Clairvoyant who looked into my life and told me about myself and my troubles.

Over the next years, I followed this path and they would tell me that I had a lot of bad luck or that there was a lot of black magic done to me. I bought into this and performed many rituals to get rid of the evil curses. Over the years, this resulted in depression and anxiety. I kept asking myself over and over again, "How can I perform all these rituals but still feel so empty?"

"Why do I still feel like there is a dark cloud hanging over my head?"

"Why would God do this to me?"

"Why is He not answering me?"

I had a lot of questions with no answers.

On the 20th, of January in 2009, I was asleep and had a dream.

I was on a battlefield, and in the field stood a large vintage castle. I was with my daughters and my cousin. We were running from the soldiers that were going to attack us. As I ran I came to a hedge growing a few meters from the castle and we hid under it. I prayed as hard as I could. The soldier stood in front of us and I realized that we were invisible so, the four of us got up and ran as fast as we could. We found ourselves in a three-by-three room in a white basket. The basket started to lift off the floor and it felt as if we were shrinking.

The basket moved across the empty room and a loud voice said, “I am carrying you in the palm of my hand." Just as Isaiah 49:16 (NIV) says, "Behold, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands [...]"

Simultaneously in my sleep, I felt an incredible, indescribable peace come over me, from the crown of my head throughout my entire body. It lasted for about 10 to 15 seconds and then it was over.

  “I am carrying you in the palm of my hand”

I got up in the morning and went to work as normal and shared my dream with my colleague who is a follower of Christ. She was ecstatic about this and I wasn’t at all. A few days later I had a second dream and this time she stood in my dream and there was an amazing bright light that shone over me and her. Again I shared the second dream with her and again she was overjoyed. She had an understanding of what this meant and I didn’t. She explained to me that Jesus has come to me as a Saviour. In my head, this was overwhelming and I asked her, "What does He want with me?" She began to explain that He chose me to follow His teachings. Not knowing or understanding any of this, I was scared and afraid. With anxiousness and fear, but filled with an incredible excitement deep on the inside of me, I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Saviour.

I then understood that my dream of dying was me dying to my old life and being born into Christ. The old has gone and the new has come! Just as the Bible says in 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV), "Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation. The old has passed away; behold, the new has come."

There will be more to come from Mrs. Bhervia, and I am excited to share our new journey soon!
