Long story short....
I have been praying for my family (my parents, my two sisters, and all their children ) for a very long time now. I have had a strong burden for them and have been praying for a long time now, for God to move in their lives, and to send someone by each of their paths that could be used of God to witness or preach to them. None of my family has ever really listened to me, and it has been obvious for many years now that I was most likely "not" going to be the one to be able to lead any of them to the Lord. However....I know my Lord can orchestrate everything in their lives so that they could be brought to the point and the person whom they would listen to.
Well, my niece....has recently reached a new crossroad in her life. Yesterday morning God knocked on the door of her heart, she was under such heavy conviction throughout most of the service, and she went to the alter where many of us prayed with her. One of my sisters-in-law actually was the one to lead her to Lord. This....I felt was best. Man oh man. I knew God was working in her heart (because of some talks we have had with her over the past few days) yet I never thought she would yield to God quiet so fast. Boy, did I underestimate......everything!!
There is much in her life that I know God will change over time, but for now, I am beyond thankful (some how not even close to being an accurate description of how I feel) to know that one more member of my family is now eternally secure. When the time comes for her to pass from this life, she now knows she will be with Christ in Heaven, and not burning in Hell for all eternity.
Last night in the evening service, there was a brief time where some were testifying, and for a brief moment, I was of them. I wanted all to know just how thankful to God I truly am for my niece being Saved, and as I said last night...."a few Sunday's ago, we all took turns standing and naming our "Lost" family members one by one, of whom we wish to see saved. My niece Casey was one of those whom I names. As I said last night....1 down...13 more to go.!
All Praise, Honor, and Glory goes solely to God in Heaven and Jesus Christ His Son, for yet another member of my family being saved.
Happy am I!
Glad am I!
Thankful I am, beyond all words.
For the salvation of one more soul....and one of my family!
Thank You Lord!!!
Please pray for Casey! There is much in her life which needs the Lords direct attention, guidance, leading, and most of all His Love!
Pray for her as God leads!
I really have know idea if anyone even still reads my blog anymore, but for those of you who do stop by, PLEASE.....PLEASE Lift her up in your prayers.
Love & Prayers,
Have A Peachy Keen Day!
