It is not the people you look at, it the Faith that is displayed in their life. The Faith they have in their Creator God, because they have come to accept Him, love Him and follow Him, no matter where it leads in their lives.
I have been privileged, to enjoy the company of many people, who are like this. One such couple are Pastors of a small church but does such a great work. Pastors in every aspect of their lives, because you can see their calling oozing from their lives.
Pastors Tony and Helen are going through a tough time at the moment, because of an illness Helen is going through, but to speak with them. to share with them, is remarkable, because of their faith and trust in the Lord.
A selfless couple by every aspect of the word, completely sold out for the Lord. You will not get a ‘why me’, from Helen, she is so up beat about her journey in Faith,. If there was a scripture verse to some up for Tony and Helen, it would be 1 Thessalonians 5 verse 18:
“Give thanks in everything, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.”
Pastor Helen and I were texting this morning, before she went in for treatment, I generally would not reveal a text, but Pastor Helen’s words were a message that should be shared:
The Text Message, ” We’ve got so little faith in ourselves, but it is Jesus’ faith, He had in Father God getting Him through the cross for us. Their plan so wonderful. His faith has been so present. So much we don’t understand about Him and in these trials, He reveals things. Have had such a blessed morning with Him. I want to tell all the world about Him. He must be getting me ready to do more things for Him.”
These are not the words of a person under pressure of an illness, they are the words of a wonderful inspiring lady, who has complete faith, in Her Lord, Her Savior and Her Friend.
People of commitment and faith, we are blessed to meet them, where ever we go in life, and I am sure we all know people like this, people who live their Faith in the God they serve.
