The following is a post from Diann Jarvis. She and her family have attended Journey from the very beginning. I asked her if I could post it here and she kindly obliged. We have no idea to what lengths God will go to bring people to him. Wow.
“Today is a day I will never forget. Today is my dad’s 75th birthday. Instead of me giving him an incredible gift, he gave me one…again. I gave my heart to the Lord in November of 1998. About a year of so later, my dad gave me a little black bible that my mom had given him on 12/25/1969. My husband liked it because it was little and compact. He started carrying it. He made notes and underlined chapters. He carried it in his truck and would read it on lunch break. He came out of work one night and his truck had been ransacked and the bible was gone. Mike wasn’t so upset about the truck being broken into as he was about the bible getting sto…len. My parents have been divorced since I was 5 so this bible was special to me. Mike made the statement that night that he hoped whoever stole it would read it and it would change their life. I hoped so too. Last week, my dad got a phone call. The man said he had found a little black bible that had his information in it and wanted to return it. He said he had found it in an old car that his son had bought. He went on to say that he had been reading it and he and his wife had given their hearts to the Lord and he wanted to return it to its rightful owner. My dad told him to keep it if he needed to. The man went on to explain that his wife had bought them new bibles. He brought the bible to my dad last week and once again, I am in possession of this little black bible. I have often wondered what happened to the bible. Now I know. It was exactly where God intended it to be. Riding around in an old car until it reached the ones that would receive the fullness of it. God’s Word is so active, alive and awesome. It never returns void. In this case, it returned via 2 more saved souls. I have been truly blessed beyond measure today. You go God!!!!!”
Thanks for sharing Diann. Go God!!!!
