An awesome priviledge

What an awesome priviledge it is to be used by God to further His Kingdom.

Today I had the priviledge of praying with a friend as she accepted Jesus as her personal Savior. What a special moment. Hubby and I have been praying for her and her husband for quite some time. We never were quite sure where she stood spiritually. Today, my friend and I got together for breakfast, as we periodically do, and I boldly asked her "Is there a time in your life where you know for sure, you could drive a stake, and say you accepted Jesus as your Savior?" I borrowed one of my husbands' line.

She was honest to say "No, I haven't". So we talked some and I asked her if she wanted to do that today, and she said "yes, I do". So we both prayed and she asked Jesus to forgive her, and to come into her heart, so she could have a personal relationship with God. It was absolutely beautiful as we both had tears streaming down our cheeks. A new sister in Christ!!! If you are a believer, please lift up our new baby sister in Christ. That she may thrive and not get choked by the thorns of this world.

This is what life is really about. This is what counts, what matters. Winning lost souls to God's Kingdom. Doing things that have Kingdom value. Praise God from whom all blessings flow! Thank you Father for using me today, for your Glory.
