Our computer had the "blue screen of death" and so I have been absent from my blog, but Praise the Lord it is fixed now! Anyway the best news to blog about is that the mother of some of our church bus riders has been taking a bible study at our house with the pastor and his wife, and came to the conclusion she was a sinner and in need of a savior, she prayed and asked God to save her through the blood of Jesus Christ! I am so excited for this woman, she has 5 children who now have a mother who is on her way to heaven. This is especially important to me because her children sometimes tell me they believe she will die soon because she has lung cancer; but God is merciful and has sustained her life thus far to hear and receive the gospel! I am praying God gives her many more years here on earth to bloom into a beautiful child of God. I am so thankful that God allowed our paths to cross and our family could be a part of this wonderful act of God! It encourages me so much to continue to reach others with the gospel of Jesus Christ!
I love this song it is about what could be happening in heaven when someone repents of their sin and calls on the savior!
Could it be that up in heaven,
God is sitting on his throne
Anticipating another sinner
will soon become his own.
Years of wasted living and
years of toil and strife
are just about to be over
as he receives the gift of life.
Go sound the horn
strike up the choir.
A sinner is saved.
Saved from the fire
no more in darkness
he's received my son
all heaven rejoices
that's the value of one
the holy spirit has been working
to soften up a heart
all he needs is a willing servant
to simply do his part
can you imagine up in heaven
the joy there is that day
as a sinner bows his head to pray
can't you hear the father say...
start construction on the mansion
there on hallelujah street
he doesn't know yet what is waiting
when the savior he'll meet... he'll meet
