I had a wonderful time at church yesterday. Still ended up in tears. I’m still amazed that I am finally there. These are my friends. This is my support and family!
We sang “Overcome” and I think Someone is setting this up! (It is God) He is showing me that He sees me…He hears me…He is among us! This song will always be special to me. It is me and Cindy’s song as the verse in Revelation is very special to us. “And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb and the word of their testimony.” (12:11)
And I always think of my little sister Ashley too. I was speaking about her when I sent this verse to Cindy in my first letter. And I just know that Ashley will overcome as well! What’s amazing is that RockPointe sang this song once when Ashley came to church as well and she connected with it. I hope that she connects with it soon!
So back to church. The sermon was on Mark 5 – The demon possessed man. That Jesus would “defile” Himself by going in the tombs to an “unclean” place and deliver this guy completely shows the love Jesus had for this gentile. And this man went straight away and told everyone all God had done for him.
I got teared up because I know this man’s story. It was my story. I had a legion of evil spirits tormenting me and from that very moment, I haven’t been able to keep my mouth closed at all the great things God has done for me! “And he departed and began to publish n Decapolis how great things Jesus had done for him: and all men did marvel.” (Mark 5:20)
People that knew me before Jesus came, marvel at the change in me. People who didn’t know me back then, marvel at the idea that I was such a heathen once. But that is the Glory of God! Complete transformation! He makes ALL things new! He is our Great Deliverer!
