“But others fell on good ground and yielded a crop: some a hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.”Matthew 13:8
Saturday night I looked back to a word someone shared with me because the Lord had been reminding me of it for the past few days. The person had shared with me that God planted the seed of the gospel in me and that when Jesus waters it with His word, His comfort, His freedom, His power that a field will be exploding with different fruits and flowers. Well, Sunday morning comes and the pastor taught on Matthew 13, the parable of the sower. The Holy Spirit clearly showed me verse 7 was accurate in my walk with God, which says “And some fell among thorns, and the thorns sprang up and choked them” but that verse 8 was what He had in store for me. God confirmed the word the person gave me with this scripture and in that moment I wanted to cry and get on my knees.
These past days, the Holy Spirit has been doing a work in me, empowering me and helping me see through the lens of God. I have been overflowing with joy and excitement. The only way I can describe what I am going through is like when I first came to Christ! All things new! A new work lays ahead. I cannot wait! I am grateful to bring you all along. I am so blessed by you all dearly!
I am currently in my hometown raising support for School of Missions and Cbi Israel. I can’t thank you enough for partnering with me financially and in prayer. I am at 19% out of 100 from my goal. I still got quiet a long way to go but I trust God will provide and I am grateful He already is. Being in my hometown, I have been able to reconnect with people and churches. I was able to preach the gospel to my cousin Edgar and even though he is not ready to receive Christ I was grateful God gave me an opportunity to share about Him. I had a devine appointment with a former coworker who is a non believer when I went to the grocery store. I was able to share about Jesus and it was a confirmation for him because his cousin had recently shared specific things I said to him which blew his mind. Praise God! God is so awesome! I am grateful in the ways He uses me.
Attending Compass has been new and exciting, my cousin Lucy attends this church and she has been connecting me with the church body. Twin Lakes was where I got baptized. Kyle, the young adult pastor always surprises when I visit because he remembers my name and I take it to heart. Twin Lakes along with Regeneration were the chuches God lead me to after wanting to leave the catholic church they were both an answer to prayer. Regeneration was the small community I needed at that time and I am grateful for pastor Matt and his wife DeAnna.
