Prove Me Now .... A Spiritual Personal Journal #58 - Mississippi
On the first train out of Flint to Chicago, I spent some time witnessing to one of Amtrak staff. Then I noticed a half dozen or so, Amish sitting on the train. So i thought it was too wild for me to see them and have something I am sure would blow them away. So I went to my suit case to get it.
I brought a bright white, 100% plush, cotton towel up to one of the men. After a brief conversation, I unwrapped the towel to show him......a 1629-1630 King James Bible in the original wood board binding. Needless to say....his eyes lit up and he realized that this worldly guy had a piece of treausary to share with them. He was so thrilled that later, him, his wife, and their one year old daughter, tracked several cars back to find me and talk with me.
I then decided to pull out a couple other old Christian classic books that I was sure would bless their souls. He was in awe of God's blessing on them. When we arrived in Chicago later....he hunted me down and brought me into his group of Amish men. We had a great time of fellowship!
Then two Nuns realized me and wanted my picture. So I spent time with them and we talked about Jesus for quite some time! Yes, my 8 1/2 hour layover went quickly because of the numerous people that came up to me and we talked about God! It is amazing to see just how wonderful God is to His children.
To finish out my last leg of the journey....God placed me in a car of wonderful Christian older grandmothers!!! We had such wonderful fellowship and as we pulled into our final destination....I pulled out the old Bible and watched them look up to Jesus and thank Him!
Such a wonderful time with my family of God!!! Can you just image how great Heaven will be!!
I have been asked to open the convocation today with Scriptures, and prayers. God has honored me above all these wonderful men and women of God. Tears flow down my cheeks....I am so unworthy...there are so many who are more worthy. His love for me is so great...so great.
My eyes are flowing with tears in public. I must stop this and redirect my thoughts. Soon I will stand in front of all these Ministers, and Missionaries.
