A new friend

I knocked. She opened. I explained.

She nearly cried, as did I.

She knows Him.

She received devastating news yesterday that is rocking her faith. Her heart is breaking.

Pray with me for her.

She, too, has done random acts of faith that could only be explained by the nudge of the Holy Spirit. That was encouraging.

I prayed with her as her child watched through the window. She invited me to come back after I return from India.

I want to obey Him immediately from now on. I used to look at it as having something to lose, when really there is only joy to gain.

I need so much grace!

"Why do you call Me, 'Lord, Lord,' and do not do what I say? Everyone who comes to Me and hears My voice and acts on them, I will show you what he is like: he is like a man building a house who dug deep and laid a foundation on the rock, and when a flood occurred, the torrent burst against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. But the one who has heard and has not acted accordingly, is like a man who built a house on the ground without any foundation; and the torrent burst against it and immediately it collapsed, and the ruin of that house was great."

Luke 6:46-49

When much is given, much is required.

Oh, for grace to trust Him more!
