First I want to give honor to my Lord and Savior Jesus Chris, today and everyday! Next I would like to give example of faith in the Lord. Not long ago I host 2 sisters, Just 3 years apart almost to this day. It is a wonderful feeling when you know in your heart and soul that a love one has gone to be with the lord. If you live your life through Christ he give you confirmation that he lives in you. The last sister I lost was not saved for a time. She was raised to know who Jesus was. My sister was already sick, and then was diagnosed with breast cancer. However, she had began to think about the Lord. She was already save and filled with the Holy Ghost.
Satan had put every kind of sickness that he could place on my sister. She had high blood pressure, diabetes, C.O.P. D., enlarged heart, bad kidneys and her legs were so full of fluids her skin began to break open. She called on the Lord Jesus Chris to save her soul and heal her body. Fortunately there was a man of God place in her life and he began to call her and pray for her. She wanted to go to the church she belonged, but is was a distant away. Also, being sick she could not get there. However, this man of God told her he would come to her and have bible study with her in between doctor’s appointments. I know because I started attending the study session as well. We would meet at her home at least once a week.
My sister couldn’t speak sometimes because of her breathing machine or medication, but the Lord let his word minister to her heart, mind and soul. She started to pray and call out to her Father the Lord Jesus who is in heaven. He told her he would never leave or forsake her. She was alone a lot of the time, but this was her time she used to talk to Jesus. Her prayer to him as her Savior and Lord was for him to cleanse her of all her sins. As one song goes, “Won’t he make me clean inside”.
My sister and I spent a lot of time reading and talking about the Lord. This man of God would come every week , and made sure to call every night. Most of the time it was 2 or 3 in the morning and the Lord would have him call and they would praise the Lord together. Cuddie my sister had faith that she would hear from the Lord. This gave her strength to go through the pain and all the sickness. It would take away the fear Satan tried to bring when we are alone. I watched my sister grow weaker in her body, but so much stronger in her faith and in the Lord.
This man of God had to do the will of the Lord all around the country, but my sister would sit in her chair and wait on the call from the Lord. The man of God would have to wake up in the middle of the night and sometimes drive 10 or 15 miles to get a signal on his cell phone in order to make a phone call to Cuddie so they could pray and hear from the Lord. She had not been in bed at home for about 5 years. She was large and had a lot of fluid therefore she could not lay flat. She would just sit in her chair holding the phone and nodding her head unto she got that call from the man of God. The Lord said he would keep you in perfect peace. In the world you have trial and tribulations, and distress, however through it all he will keep you in his peace.
With the man of God teaching her Jesus, would have her to know, that Jesus died on the cross for her sins before she was born, all she had to do was accept him as her personal Lord and Savior. Cuddie got the Holy Ghost on the phone after the Lord sent the man of God 10 or more miles to get a signal to pray with her. Her being faithful and waiting on those calls. God heal and cleansed her soul. I want to give thanks to my Savior Jesus Christ for making Elder Mark Thompson who is still teaching me about the Lord. Thank you Elder mark Thompson and may the Lord keep you in perfect peace. My sister passed on August 14, 2012, but in now home and resting.
Love Sister Chris.
