He Is Mighty to Save


Isn't this what it's all about? I found this in my inbox earlier this week----

Mrs. Fuentes,

I wanted to thank you for your blog. Because of your blog I got curious about what it was to be a Christian so this Christmas I went to church for the first time in about ten years. I've been going steady for about a month now and last night, with the help of my new pastor, I accepted Jesus as my savior. I wanted to thank you for planting one of the seeds the blossomed into my new faith.

-Amanda

Allelujah! Amanda, you have made a decision you will never regret. I pray that the Lord will continue to help you grow closer to Him through all things whether thick or thin. This song is for you:




(If you click the box in the corner you can view this in full screen)

"In the same way, I tell you, there is rejoicing in the presence of the angels of God over one sinner who repents." Luke 15:10

UPDATE: Amanda has recently emailed me and has shared that the best part of the story is that she brought her fiance to church with her and he was saved as well!!! I got goose bumps just reading about it---God is SO GOOD!

  5. This sheds some new light on our 'wasting time' on our blogs. Most of us would write 1000 posts if we thought this would happen even once.

  9. Ladies,

    I was floored when I just received another email from her a few minutes ago stating that the best part of her story was that she brought her fiance to church with her and he got saved too!

    AMAZING!!!

    I am so stunned.

    God is TOO GOOD.

    Wouldn't you agree?

    Many blessings...

  11. Oh wow! I LOVE your blog! You are certainly a living testimony of GOD's love and grace. I LOVE the things on your sidebar. I have been following your blog for months now but then honestly, I've just focused on it today since there are just too many blogs I follow and busy days. I decided to visit every blog I follow today. And take my word for it...I will be a faithful follower from now on. I am just so humbled by your calling from GOD. A beautiful blog. You definitely encourage me to love GOD more and my fiance and our future children. Thank you, my dear friend, for making this blog.

    Surely, it gave me the goosebumps, as well. GOD is oh-so-good! Actually, I think that's an understatement. HIS love and goodness for us is indescribable.

    GOD BLESS YOU ABUNDANTLY! P.U.S.H.

  14. This is wonderful news! To God be the Glory ...

    This demonstrates how our blogs can be a ministry to those who don't know our Saviour ...

    May He be honoured and glorified by any that have blogs and seek to share a little of what He's done in their lives!

    Blessings to you for your testimony on your pages :o)

  16. That is wonderful, June. Some dear friends used to say to us that ministry opportunities come as we faithfully obey the Lord each day.

  17. Hi Mrs. Fuentes!
    I wanted to thank you and all of your readers for your warm welcome into Christ's family. Every day I feel more and more blessed, particularly today. I spent the evening having fun while praising His name with my new church group. It was great. I had no idea that life could be like this. I'm ending the evening by checking your blog and I'm so touched by all the kind sentiments here. I have such a hard time believing that I am now a part of this amazing community. I've never felt so included.
    Thank you!
