Don’t give up!

God’s patience is amazing!

Twelve years ago, when I first woke up to the realization that Jesus was real and that we are in a battle for our souls, I prayed and prayed for my family and friends to come into that same knowledge….nothing.

Years went by and I would see a glimmer of hope here or there, but I at times, I almost gave up.   But God is faithful to answer prayer.  He does it enfolded in the hands of time, though.  Not within the workings of this world, but within the workings of His.

I have learned to pray for patience for God’s timing.

As I was sitting at the kitchen table the other day at my Dad’s house before dinner, my Dad bellowed, “OK! LET’S PRAY!  And as we bowed our heads and started, “Come Lord Jesus…”  I think I saw God wink at me.

I woke up this morning and looked back over these past dozen years and God is working!!!  I can see it, albeit ever so slowly.  Don’t give up!  Don’t ever give up!!!

A quote is circulating in my head right now.  I don’t know who said it but it goes like this, “The mills of God grind slowly, yet they grind exceedingly fine.”

God grinds patience into us.  Surrender to His timing and you will have peace.  It is well with my soul.

God, thank you that you are working!  Give us perseverance to make it to the end in trust and faith.  In Jesus’ name, Amen

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
