Good morning Caleb,
Yesterday something really awesome happened. All glory goes to God though. For the first time in my life I led someone to the altar to accept Jesus Christ into their heart. At first it was just the two of us. Before it was all over with son, several members of the church came forward. Bubby and sissy even came to the altar. It was a very empowering moment. It was really awesome to offer up such a powerful gift. There is a story behind all of this though.
Early yesterday morning this lady came over to the house. She had been going through some tough times and she needed someone to talk to. So after I wiped the crust out of my eyes and stretched, I got dressed. We then left for the local coffee-house. We sat and talked. I remember having this really strong feeling come over me, I knew right then and there the whole reason this event was taking place. For many years I had thought about this moment. It seemed as if everything that I had ever been through in my journey through life had led up to this moment. God’s voice was loud and clear. I could not hide from it.
“I just don’t know what to do about all of this.” These were her favorite words throughout the whole conversation. This lady was stuck like a rock in a hard place. I knew the only way she could get out of this tight position was to turn to God. Once I realized that all I could think about was the lord. The longer we sat there and talked the louder I heard my thoughts. God was not going to let this soul go. “Have you accepted the Lord as your savior?” she responded with a quick “no, but I want that so bad.” “I am just to scared to go up their alone.” So I offered to go up to the altar with her. “You promise,” she said. I followed up with a firm and true “yes!” The conversation then shifted gears. The lord was all we talked about after that. I knew this was going to work for her. This was exactly what she needed. Wow! God is GREAT!
Later on that morning at church she showed up late. I remember praying so hard that the Lord would bring her to church. We were in the middle of the pastoral prayer when she showed up. I still had my eyes closed so I did not know that she was there. Once the prayer was over with I opened my eyes and there she was. Another blessing from God! The time came for us to go up to the altar. You could tell that the devil was trying to pull at her. She kept telling me to wait. I told her it was time. Still she was persistent. I was not going to let her go. She was going up to that altar if I had to drag her. She eventually went on her own free will though. I was so relieved.
After church was over with and still to this very moment I am floored for having led a soul to our Father. I want some more of that feeling. I am going to continue my journey in life. I am going to stand tall in Jesus. Nothing will stand in my way. There is an empty spot in heaven beside you and I want it. It is perfectly molded for me. I just thought that I would share that with you. Even though you were right there at the altar with us witnessing it all. I need to go and get ready for the day son, so I will talk to you later.
I love you like a fat kid loves cake,
