A Celebration in the Streets

Luke 10: 20 "....Rejoice that your names are written in Heaven."

(After watching the movie Courageous tonight. It is great!)

The sweetness and majesty and grandeur of our precious Lord! Out of His great mercy He has saved another! Bought by His blood. Adopted. Reconciled. Praise you, God!

I am thrilled to be a part of the kingdom of God, the bride, the royal family, His people being ushered in for His glory! Tonight one of our boys, Dai-Dai, was added to that number! Hallelujah!

We have been praying, working, and loving on Dai-Dai to come to know the reality of the Gospel in his own life. Tonight was the night when God called him out and rescued Dai-Dai for Himself! For His glory and His Renown!!

There is nothing in this world like seeing someone you love so dearly be given the gift of faith in Jesus Christ. Tonight Dai-Dai jumped out of the car as fast as he could, with that big handsome smile, and told me that he had just accepted Christ into his life. Seeing this can never get old. It's like you can see a part of heaven, a part of Christ Himself, right in the eyes and smile of the newborn child of God. I absolutely love it. I was following behind David tonight and we came to Dai-Dai's house to drop him off. No one got out of the car. I waited. Dai-Dai didn't get out. The boys and I immediately stopped talking and prayed and prayed and prayed. We rested on His promises and we prayed. We texted asking for others to join in more prayers. We prayed, we sang, and we waited as the car still lingered in front of us. The longer it got, the more excited the boys and I got!! I cried and we prayed some more, watching and praying. Then the door opened and Dai-Dai dashed out with the good news! The most wonderful news in the world!! The music was still playing, You Alone Can Rescue. I got out of the car and we had a celebration right there in the streets!! God is so good! So wonderfully good. Perfect. And so so sweet to my soul. And so so sweet to yet another young boy tonight. Oh the heart of our Father! He passionately longs for His children! May they come out of every crack and crevice, may His children be freed and adopted. A Heavenly citizenship. Oh that each of us would have a part in bringing His people back to Himself! What Joy! We are His chosen means. May we get on our knees with the Word of God, lingering and allowing Him to ingraft His heart more and more into ours. May we wait for God, always praying and always watching. "Hearts full of love and love of pure obedience."

Our lives for the Gospel.

I love this picture of the flap of John David's Bible with the people we are praying for God to save. While we were waiting and praying in the car behind David, we just knew God had to be saving Dai-Dai! While John David and I were praying J said, "Well mom, I guess we can take Dai-Dai off my list!" Haha! I love my family. All of my family.

I am so thankful for my husband, my best friend, and my leader. I love walking this life with him. It will soon be over but the rewards of this marriage will be eternal. Thank You, Jesus!
