Well, this is going to be short and to the point (well, that is the plan anyway), as I have to get up early in the am tomorrow. Anyone who knows me, knows I don't do mornings very well at all.
Okay, I've shared about my friend Becky. She comes for the same background. She is from my "former faith family." Well, there is another girl at work. She also is from our "former faith family." In all actuality, she is from the church my husband Pastored, and she is who she is from our teaching. UGH!!!! I have prayed that God would forgive me for leading people in the wrong direction, and I truly believe he has. It simply blows my mind when I think of the way I used to believe. Okay, back on track. Becky, who is about 10 years younger than I, and not married, has befriended Ashley,who is junior in High School(see much closer in age, than Ashley and I). Ashley has asked questions, and Becky has answered. Ashley has agreed to come to our church at least 3 times before she makes a judgement on whether or not she likes it. That may sound odd, but let me tell you, when you come from an emotional driven church, to a church that is reformed in worship, it can be quit odd to you. Ashley is hungry for truth. God has opened her understanding. Last night, she talked to me some. I gave her a copy of my testimony. She told me she read it today, and it makes sense to her. She even told me that, "I know that had I read this a year ago, I would have thought you were crazy." Hallelujah! I'm so excited, I can't hardly stand it. I explained to her, that God is doing a work in her heart, or she still would not see what I'm saying. When we left our former faith, I had some long heart to heart talks with Ashley, and she just didn't understand, and I told her she was always welcome to come with us, but not to follow me, just because it is me. Wow, I'm just so excited I could dance. I just keep asking her, "what makes you right with God?" If you get that right, the rest will follow.
Well, I'm sure I'll post more on this later, but for now, I just wanted to share a little of the story. It was just too good not to share. Please help me pray concerning this situation. Thanks in advance.
