What A Testimony!

Here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I'm trying to get caught up in telling you about what I've been doing, lately.  Hopefully, you aren't bored out of your mind!

There was something I did on St. Patrick's Day, that I haven't yet discussed.

A friend invited me to her church family's women's meeting.  Although I have worshipped there in the past on a few occasions, I haven't ever attended one of those meetings.

What a time I had! 

Wow!  Was I shocked!  Or, maybe I should say, surprised!

I had arrived, before my friend had.

A woman introduced herself, and I did, too.  She commented that she thought I was going to sing that evening.

This shocked me!  You see, I had been sick with that cold that had gone down into my lungs, and hadn't been able to sing.

Even though I was feeling much better, my lungs still felt heavy.  And, it was difficult for me to sing. 

I let this lady know that I wasn't going to be able to do sing, that evening.  And, explained to her... why.

Meanwhile, many other women entered the room.  It seemed that I knew many of them! 

There was a lady that I do line-dancing exercise with.  Another woman, I had met a short time ago, who ended up sitting next to me.

Then, a few other women came and said 'hello', because I knew them, also!

It was then, when I found out that an associate pastor from where I used to worship, had become the pastor of this church family.  I saw his wife, that I hadn't seen in quite a while. 

Finally, my friend D arrived.  With a friend of hers I had met in the past.

D played the piano, as the ladies sang hymns.  Even though I had known D a long time, this was the first time I had ever heard her play the piano.  She played wonderfully!

We played a couple of games.  Neither of which, I won. 

However, I must say, that under the plate I used for snacks, was a cross written by a pen.  This meant that I won a rock decorated for St. Patrick's Day, with a message saying, "May God Bless You".  :)  This was lovely!  Thank you!

By the way, D gave her testimony.

Wow!  How wonderful a testimony she has!

As she spoke, many women had tears flowing.  Including me.

Even so, it was a true blessing to have heard D's testimony.

Thinking of how people give testimonies, reminded me of Psalm 119:46, " I will speak of thy testimonies also before kings, and will not be ashamed."

All of us, who loves our Lord, and gives testimonies, understand that we will never be ashamed.

We'll never be ashamed of the troubles/trials in life that we have experienced.  Nor, will we ever be ashamed of knowing and/or loving our Lord, Jesus Christ.

After all, He is the reason that we will live for eternity, in Heaven.  With God.

Unlike those who refuse to trust in/believe upon our Lord, Jesus Christ, who will spend eternity in Hell, separated from God.  With no chance of escape.

In my heart, I want everyone to be saved, even though God will save, whom He will save.  So, my reader, I will pray for you, so that you also will gain salvation, if you do not already have it.


Until next time...
