Cannot See...

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I've written many times about how worshipping my Lord, touches my heart.  Especially on SONday, like today.

Last Sunday, I worshipped my Lord. 

Not here in Windsor.  Instead, I was in Lake Havasu City (LHC), Arizona, USA.

Are you surprised? 

To be honest, I was sort of surprised that I would be in LHC, because it wasn't a trip I had taken time to plan.  More about this, another time.

In any case, my cousin E, who lives in LHC, was born of a Jewish mom, and a Protestant dad who, as far as I know, never really worshipped at church.  Except possibly, when he was young.

A long time ago, she began being led to believe in Christ.  For this, I praised God!  After all, I had been praying for her for this, for many a year.

After being widowed for a while, life took a turn.  She made contact with someone she had known many years ago.

In the past, I wrote about how she had been widowed, and then remarried in February this year.  She married a fellow she had been in love with, about 44 years earlier!  He's been a born-again Christian for quite a while, now. 

How blessed I was, being able to worship at the Baptist church, where my family worships!  Here's a LINK to Calvary Baptist Church, in LHC.

How grateful I am that my family member has come to Christ and gained salvation. 

After all, God's Word tells us in John 3:3, "Jesus answered and said unto him, Verily, verily, I say unto thee, Except a man be born again, he cannot see the kingdom of God."

It amazes me even to this day, that I had prayed for so many years, that my cousin would become born-again.  And, she has!

How thankful I am that she is a convert, who has also been obedient to God's leading, and been baptized.  Thank You, Lord! 

How blessed I feel, that like others in her life, God answered our prayer for my cousin.  Thank You, Lord!

How grateful I am that both my cousin and her new husband focus on Jesus and love Him, in a saving relationship!  Thank You, Lord! 

If Jesus is not your saviour, please read the New Testament portion of the Bible.  Begin in the book of John, where you'll read that a person must be born again, just as quoted above.

May the Holy Spirit convict you, and guide you to faith in Christ.


Until next time...
