Sunday at the beach we met a precious young family who stopped at our Bible Table on their way to fish off the pier. This happy group chatted awhile. Then Fran told her husband to go ahead with the older children as she wanted to “fellowship” with us a few minutes.
She never stopped smiling as she told her remarkable story of how God had changed her life over a year ago. She said God restored their marriage and now her husband is working again.
She has wonderful new friends who love Jesus. They are involved in a church for the first time in their lives, and next Sunday several members of their family will be baptized. She’s been in a weekly Bible study for one year and is experiencing more and more of God’s love and faithfulness as she trusts in Him.
What joy to hear Fran’s story and then to pray with her! Have you experienced this kind of joy from the Lord? Have you shared it with others?
- Instead of their shame my people will receive a double portion, and instead of disgrace they will rejoice in their inheritance; and so they will inherit a double portion in their land, and everlasting joy will be theirs. Isaiah 61:7
SONG: AT THE FEET OF JESUS – Lyrics by Liana Wendy Howarth; Music by Kathleen
[This life is temporary. This life is short. When this life is over, our bodies will die and become empty shells, but our souls will continue to live forever. Where will the “real you” live? Will you live for all eternity separated from God? Or will you spend eternity in the presence of God in heaven?
