Hello everyone how have you guys been? I hope that you guys have had blessed days since last post. These last few days two members of my family took radical decisions that will bring big changes to their lives. One of the decisions I know it’s a huge blessing that I wouldn’t change for anything. This decision we have been praying for, we have fasted for and we have cry out for. I can’t describe the immense gratitude and joy that I have in my heart in this moment because; the Kingdom of God has received a new soldier.
“Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents.”
What can I say?. This moment we have been waiting for 7 years. I rejoice because the Lord answered our prayers of frustration, tears, heartache and hope. I truly can’t imagine how we lived before without the decision that my older brother Denys took of repenting and accepting Jesus Christ as his savior. We used to live in fear of waiting for a phone call or a knock in our door telling us that he had been arrested or killed. Something like that happening to us would have destroyed our faith’; we were just holding on to the last thread of faith that we had. We were not seeing any change in his life and we had been praying for years for him; to be delivered from the addictions of alcohol and drugs. There were moments when we were asking the Lord for help just like Peter did when he was drowning. We were drowning in the heaviness or cross that we were carrying; praying for deliverance and salvation for him.
2 Corinthians 4:16
“Therefore we do not lose heart. Though our outer self is wasting away, yet our inner self is being renewed day by day.”
What can I say, the Lord is merciful and he deserves all the honor and glory because he has the perfect timing for everything. We wanted to bring this decision in our own time; I guess we were so tired and impatient by the end of this trial that we couldn’t see that God was working not in what we can see but what he can only see. We were seeing the big Goliath( problem) instead the big God that we had in our side. We were trying to help God bring that change in Denys life; that we forgot that when God delivers at his own time; he delivers for forever. If only you guys could see the change the Lord did. He is in his first love, right in this moment he hungers for God’s presence, his word and the wisdom and understanding for his word. It’s a miraculous thing to see and experience. Those that are going through a similar trial with a family member or even yourself; don’t lose hope because the Lord has the perfect timing that he will finish what he has started in your life or of family.
“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, declares the LORD.”
P.S. I will tell you in the next post about the other big decision that was made; don’t want to make this post to long. God bless and lets keep praying for those souls that need God in their lives. Let’s unite in prayer. Remember to like and share or even comment so that we can keep spreading his world. Xoxo🙏
