“It feels good to be told, ‘I’m loved.’”
Literature Evangelist Tasmanian Conference.
It is truly a joy and a great blessing to serve as a Literature Evangelist. Last week I had Joe Paola (LE Team Leader) working with me, and what a privilege it was to be used by God to bring hope to a very distressed young lady.
Mandy (name changed), not long ago had her child taken away from her by welfare. Hurt and uncertain of the future, Mandy cried out to God in prayer. Little did she know that her prayer in a few short days would be answered.
Inviting us into her home she ordered our set of ‘Foods and their healing Power’ and shared her story. We listened and encouraged her with promises from the bible. As we shared we slowly noticed her countenance change for the better.
In the inspired book, The Desire of Ages, we find the words, “He Uplifts the Distressed. Not a sigh is breathed, not a pain felt, not a grief pierces the soul, but the throb vibrates to the Father’s heart. God is bending from His throne to hear the cry of the oppressed. To every sincere prayer He answers, ‘Here am I’. He uplifts the distressed and the downtrodden. In all our afflictions He is afflicted. In every temptation and every trial the Angel of His presence is near to deliver.”
The last few days I have seen a tremendous peace come over Mandy, and in the short time that we have known each other, I have sensed that she trusts me and believes that I am genuinely wanting to help her.
Today I accompanied Mandy to court and the judge was very happy with her progress. I have invited her to prayer meeting and Mandy has promised to come. Mandy has also promised that she will come with me to church on Sabbath.
I can testify to what the LORD has done in Mandy’s life and I was moved when she said, “It feels good to be told, ‘I’m loved.’ Praise the Lord for another soul delivered from the enemy!!!
May the Lord help us as we continue to reach out to the lost and bring them to Jesus. For indeed He is nearer then when we first believed.
