God Is Wonderful, He Is Alive and On The Move
Good morning everyone! I hope you all had a great week! I know I have! The power of God has been moving all around. I think it's in the water or something! = ) Well everyone I have to tell you about a young lady that I met about 3 weeks ago. Her name is Rosa Rodriguez. She has a 2 1/2 year old boy and has been facing some troubles in her life lately. One night we were just hanging out at my mother-in-law's house and she happened to be there with her boyfriend, Carlos, working on his car. We all went to the back to sit down and we started talking about Jesus our wonderful savior. She was claiming to be Catholic. Which was not a problem to me. I was just telling her about our Lord and how great he has been moving at our church. We got to the speaking in tongues and it kinda threw her off a bit. She said she went to church but never heard about that. We explained it to her and about everything that God can do in her life. We talked for a while. At the end before we were leaving I invited her to church and she was so excited to say yes. You could tell she was hungry for more. I woke up the next morning not knowing what to expect when I called her. But she was bright eyed and bushy-tailed ready to go! We got to church on a Sunday morning. It was a little unusual for her all the singing and worshiping. I had to explain what was going on. She then understood a little. Our Pastor spoke a wonder sermon as usual. She said that the sermon was speaking right to her. I told her that God knew she was gonna be here before she had even decided to. She had wanted to cry but was holding back. I said if you feel the need to cry you cry. Well the service was over and we all went to eat. As us Pentecostals always do. = ) Her boyfriend happened to come along. We tried inviting him to church but he was a little skeptical about it. He went that night. Well to make a longer story short she has been coming faithfully for about three weeks. This past Wednesday service we had an evangelist come and speak, Bro. Sam Emory. He is an awesome preacher. The service was about God is always there whether the times are rough or times are great we just have to seek him cause he is always on the move. The whole time the services was going on she was clapping and worshiping just like us. At the end of service he asked everyone who as never gotten the Holy Ghost with the evidence of speaking in tongues to come down to the altar. She paused and looked at me and I told her to go. She went and the spirit of God rained on her. She was speaking in tongues. This is the wonderful gift that God has for everyone just waiting for them to seek him. After the whole service was over she was glowing. She said that her burdens have been lifted off of her. She felt so great and happy ready to receive more. Since that day we have seen each other everyday and she is still glowing with the presence of God. She is trying to live her life serving our mighty, powerful and merciful Creator. She can't stop talking about what has happened to her. Everyone God has a new cup of mercy waiting for us everyday even if we fail don't give up keeping going. God never wants us to give up. When the going gets rough turn to him and he will always be there. Bro. Emory said if you don't have a father here on earth, you always have a father up in heaven. Well everyone just keep my friend in your prayers so her walk with God will get even stronger. Thank you everyone for reading this. I hope it has gave you as much joy that it has given me. God is just waiting for us, he is always around. Hope everyone will have a blessed weekend in Jesus name.
