33 Years Later Still Saying Yes

It was thirty-three years ago this month that I drove out to a park with a small lake in my city on a Sunday morning and while praying rededicated my life to Jesus. My prayer was along the lines of, “wherever you want me to go, whatever you want me to do.”

Over the past thirty-three years, there have certainly been valley times and some very deep like almost dying, recovering, and sorting out what God wanted me to do, I have certainly seen down times financially. For almost thirty years I have lived with chronic illness.

There have been wonderful experiences such as my ministry trips, seven to Romania, one to France, one to Mexico, and two to Brazil. Jesus has allowed me the privilege of meeting people from around the world living in my city , sharing his love and gospel with them, and teaching them English.

If one thinks about the hardships I have experienced since that Sunday morning in July 1989, one might think I would regret the prayer and wish I had merely prayed about coming back to him. But I do not regret it. To say I regret it would be to regret all of the incredible opportunities he has given me to share him with others. It would also mean I regret meeting all of the refugees and immigrants I have met.

No I certainly do not regret my decision and prayer. I am grateful Jesus has called me to reach the nations. It is my privilege to continue saying yes to the call of Jesus.

I would like to share a golden oldie with you. It is a song by the group First Call called Lord of All. It is the song I was listening to when I prayed that Sunday morning.

Thank you for reading. God Bless.

  1. Thank you for sharing this. The road of obedience to the Lord may not be without its challenges but it sure is the blessed route to take.

      1. On Tuesday there was the National Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast which I joined online. This seems to have triggered the resignations. According to what I read. I find this quite exciting after all! Sajid Javid resigned on Tuesday, July 5, saying he could no longer serve under the Prime Minister.

        Speaking about that decision in the Commons on Wednesday, he said words spoken at the prayer breakfast had a big impact.

        “We began our day together you [House Speaker], I, my right honourable friend, the Prime Minister and members from across his house when we broke bread together at the Parliamentary Prayer Breakfast. We listened, all of us, to the words of Rev Les Isaac, who spoke about the responsibility that comes with leadership, the responsibility to serve the interests of others above your own, and to seek common ground of your party, your community, and above all, your country.

  2. Happy “Birth” Day in Christ. Memories as a Believer are so inspiring. We have our ups and downs, but Holy Spirit is there to keep us. Plus, our life experiences build our character, strengthening us to be the courageous children Father God wants us to be. Thanks for sharing your testimony. 😊

      1. I am doing good. Had to switch to a new doctor. Discovered the former doctors weren’t able to treat my condition. The bew dictor ibcreased the steroids to 39mg.

        I go for bloodwork on Monday, prayerfully my liver will have come down enough to start steriod reduction and they can give me another form of medicine that is a “demon drug!”🀒
