I have started a "Thanks" list. It is in my prayer notebook. Yesterday, when I was at prayer, God started reminding me of many prayers He has answered in behalf of our lost loved one.
I am sorry for not posting in so long. It isn't that God isn't giving me raindrops, and lots of them, but they are SO very personal! Let me just testify that very specific prayers that we have been praying for our lost loved one have been answered, and God is moving in very specific ways!!! I simply do not wish to break confidence.
But, I can say that...
God, Jehovah Sabaoth, has protected our loved one from very specific things.
God has spared life numerous times. Satan came to kill, steal, and destroy, and he has tried and tried, but God has protected and spared not only life but future ministry. (John 10:10 says, "The thief cometh not, but for to steal and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.")
God has changed tastes and taken away pleasure from evil things!!
God has revealed truth!!
God has proven that He is, and that is the rewarder of them that diligently seek Him!! (Hebrews 11:6 says, "But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.")
I am so very thankful!!!!
