That would explain why you are so chipper! A very bright morning to you this Saturday!I nod off,than wake up,but now have to retire,as my dogs will wake me up again at 5am.<quoted text>
It's 9:50 am where I am.
Went to a nice Good Friday service in the church I attend.It was a joint effort between 20 different Evangelical groups.A guest speaker was invited;a black woman who was a former police officer.We in my city know her,as in 1993 while on duty she was shot 5 times at close range by a gang member.
Sherry(her first name)was doing a report in her squad car,at 2am,when a gang member well known in our city as a thug,shot her 5 times,bullets hitting both shoulders,her elbow,and the last her head.She actually died on the spot,but obviously God had other plans for her.Sherry claimed that the 5 bullets all did their job in attempting to either cripple her for life,or end her life.Nevertheless,she survived and lives to tell the story,along with the tragedy of what she went through personally.Her husband divorced her that same year,she had to undergo so many surgeries,and she was filled with hatred for the perpetrator.
The JOURNEY HOME to her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ is what stirs that conscience in us all,as to what really matters.Jesus in the power of His resurrection gave to Sherry,not only a new life,but a new focus,and determination to live for HIM,who forgives with the AGAPE of the Father of us all.Sherry's hatred for the gang member was transformed into a heart of praying of him to become a believer.
Very bright and stirring testimony with the foundation of suffering and transforming power of Christ. Not a dry eye in the place,there were over 2000 people in the sanctuary.Take care Buckster,I hope that His resurrecting power gives you a great boost in your life to live the life He wants in you bro!
