March 19,1998 I was working on the farm and listening to the St. Jude's Radiothon.
As I was in and out of the truck and tractor I listened to parents of children fighting for their lives. All while I had 2 precious, healthy kids at home.
I could hear the faith in some of their voices as they told a story of pain and suffering.
But, the ones that had no faith to the tone of their voice was gut wrenching. Here I was with healthy kids and they were wondering if their's would live.
I called and gave my credit card # to donate $30/month. That made me feel better.
As the years went by, I could feel The Holy Spirit telling me I can do more. I can get on a plane and take a large donation and tell those parents that there is hope. There's a loving God who cares for them and wants to have a relationship with them. I can tell the children there's hope, because Jesus, God's only son died so they could go to Heaven and walk on golden streets.
As the years have gone by waiting for this blessing, His Spirit has been gently whispering...here's another ministry to take on, this is another person you can bring into the fold to help the cause.
I'm humbled and ready. Sure it will be nice to have some vacation time or nice, new vehicles. But...I'm most excited about the work I can do for God. I hope you are too.
Amen! Have a Blessed day!
