2012 in Review – Testimony
On January 6th, 2013, our church had the annual “Vision Night Service” where our pastor explains the events, conferences, etc. for the church’s coming year, and the direction he feels the Lord is directing the church. A month or so before, Pastor Hutchens challenged us to write short testimonies of what the Lord had done for us this past year, and he put them in the booklet for this year’s events. They were written on small “tag” cards, so not much room, and this is what I wrote:
It has been a harsh year of trials for our family, but God has proven Himself more faithful and gracious than all the trials. He continues Phillipians 1:6 –
“Being confident of this very thing, that he which hath begun a good work in you will perform it until the day of Jesus Christ:”
Those who are close to our family know some of what we have gone through, and it is indeed heart wrenching, yet there is so much more that only God knows. This devotional isn’t about all that though. It’s about my best friend, my Jesus, who is always faithful to do exactly what He promised He would do – make me more like Him – whatever it takes!
