Dedicated to my sweet sister Jenny
Hello everybody! I never imagined WE would be called to start a new ministry. Awakening to God Ministries (AGM) has been birthed out of deep travail. If God’s glory can be shown through our very broken hearts, who am I to question Him? After all, He made my heart and He blessed me with my beautiful children. I thought Alex and Rebecca would bury me, but we buried them (I’m weeping now). Proverbs 3:5 tells us to trust God and not to lean on our own understanding. I have to trust He has a purpose in our overwhelming sorrow – it’s not for nothing.
AGM is a WE ministry. Meaning, Gerard, Ben, myself and many other precious brothers and sisters have much to share about the love and hope found in Jesus Christ.
I am both proud and humbled to mention Jenny, my sweet sister in Christ and prayer partner extraordinaire! This Godly woman, who allowed my grief to touch her heart in such a profound way, has her own amazing story to tell. As I said, we were prayer partners and that will ignite warfare. 1 Peter 5:8 tells us that we have an enemy who waits, and he waited. During the darkest dark seasons of my soul, Jenny continued in spiritual warfare on my behalf.
We now see that God, in His infinite wisdom, bonded us together “for such a time as this” (Esther 4:14). God’s timing is perfect and He makes everything beautiful in His time (my Rebecca would say that). Jenny has been with us from the very beginning of AGM, and that is beautiful to me! We will all be blessed to hear how God spoke to Jenny’s heart on the subject of reconciliation in future events and videos.
The Israelites often placed piles of stones to remind them of when God had met them in certain ways. On Friday 9 October, Jenny and I placed our pile of stones as we shared of God’s faithfulness and reconciliation in our friendship. Many of you know that speaking in front of a group and sharing my private world of grieving is not something I would choose to do. I’ll just say that I can’t speak enough of the faithfulness of God, in bringing me thus far.
My Rebecca would call it a shout out! Thank you Lachele, from the bottom of my heart, for so kindly hosting the coffee morning. And thank you to the sweet sisters who took time out of their busy day to come and listen to Jenny and me share our story (we so felt your love).
I will always say I don’t like these chapters God has written into my life, as I miss my Alex and my Rebecca with every step, every breath and every heart beat here on earth…
Romans 8:28 comes to mind – ‘In all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.’ I absolutely love Jesus! And Rebecca and Alex are with Him right now, as are all our loved ones who gave their hearts to Jesus.
