I need to tell you a beautiful story. Now this story is not just a story, this is the adventure part of my walk with God.
Coming from being an enemy of God, like the song says His reckless love left the 99 to seek me and find me and bring me back to His kingdom purpose.
This walk has been for the past 11 years since I accepted Jesus as my Lord and savior. I have been reading his bible since 2010. Today on October 27, 2018 I can say that I work daily on understanding His word and His promises. I have experienced His love, His peace, His joy, His goodness, His faithfulness, and today He confirm His security for me and for my future generations.
Today I went to take my well behaved and diligent children to the park. At this park we had just arrived. I was seeking God’s nature to see if I was lucky enough to find a butterfly’s cocoon for a picture. My girls were enjoying some swings in the distance and this man came up to them through a hole in the fence. I noticed this move and immediately headed to them. As soon as I got there the girls told me the man had ask them from the fencing to get him his glasses and to bring the glasses over. As soon as this man sees me walking towards him, he started telling me how he was just asking the girls if he had left his sunglasses in that area. This was not true because my kids don’t have a reason to make up what he said. So, I just said fine and did like if I was just walking to exercise and approach the car and took a picture of the license plate. At this exact same moment, a beautiful woman God had already highlighted to me when I got to the park walk up to me and another lady that notice the situation and immediately approached me and I ask her if she had seen that man walking the area before. She confirms she had not. This other lady God made walk all the way over from the other side of the park started to tell me how she is the leader of a group for fitness at the park and she knows the ones that can fix the fencing immediately and that the kids are safe because everyone in the park knows each other. So incredible how I was never afraid for my children, but I was for other children in the future. Why? I now know. I now see God’s truth over the worlds truth. I have been learning a few promises from the book of Joshua chapter 1. The most important one is that he gives you all place that your feet touches and no one can come against you because God is with us. He calls us to be courageous. This is what I am walking in a faith that believes His word over what the world wants us to believe. Paul says that we have to be transform by the renewal of our minds. He also explains in the New Testament that we should not conform to the ways of this world and that this world teaches us fear. The word says that Perfect Love cast out fear. I have been perfecting my love walk because I have been loving those who hurt me, those who persecute me, those who are poor and unwanted. God knows as long as I get an opportunity to love on someone, He calls me to I do it, I do, no questions ask. This is what happens. God’s favor was upon my family because he brought these 2 remarkable women of God. This lady the one God had highlighted from the beginning that came walking from really far away, being a doctor and having a hurt foot. God place her in my way, so I can know that another woman of God is using her time to bless each and every person that crosses her path. I told her how powerful the presence of the Lord was with her there. I explain how powerful her service was to me and my walk-in faith. Basically, told her where I came from: “Panic attacks always thinking the worst could happen to my kids.” Now I am a lion for Christ always serving putting His kingdom comes 1st (Matthew 6) and loving and trusting my kids to his powerful, loving, and graceful hands.
Please pray with me today…
God, we come boldly to the throne of your grace knowing you are with us and that you comfort us with your word and your truth revealed through your Holy Spirit. I place each and every person I love in your hands knowing Psalm 91 security, blessings, and promises are upon them. Thank you, Jesus for your freedom and the ability to have eyes to see and ears to hear in faith today and forever. Amen.
