Those of you that have known me for a really long time remember what it was like when I accepted Jesus. It was like I discovered a lost treasure and I couldn’t stop talking about the change He brought about in my life.
Lost a lot of friends too. I remember how painful it was. I had a new life and I knew that not everyone would embrace it or care to hear about it. Yet, I was blessed in that many caught the passion and wondered, ‘maybe I should try Jesus for myself’. I won friends to Christ and several have gone into ministry as we co-labor to win souls for Christ.
So, I shouldn’t be surprised at the response I’ve received since making Plexus a part of my life as well. If people were turned off from me sharing Jesus, I have to expect some will be turned off from me sharing Plexus.
It still hurts my heart. I share what I strongly, deeply and passionately believe will positively impact people’s lives. I want so badly for everyone to experience the joy and happiness I have that is so readily available to them.
Yet, I am reminded God has given us all free will. People are free to watch my journey, or not watch my journey. People are free to join my journey, or not join my journey. And yes, people are free to mock me, unfriend me and block me, if they so choose.
I will say this . . . if you can still see this, that means you’re still with me. Please know my heart. I pray that you will have eternal life and life more abundantly. I pray that you live a life that brings God glory. I pray that your soul prospers and that you be in good health. I pray that if you lack in any area and the Lord provides a way of escape, you would receive it.
I pray that if something blesses you, you would share it with others who need it as well. And I pray that if you won’t share, you would pray for those with the courage to do so. May those who do good to others receive your prayers instead of your judgment.
And to those who are on this journey like myself enduring persecution, keep your head up. Doing what is right isn’t always popular. Keep going for that friend who will get a great report from their doctor because you shared. Keep going for that friend who was facing foreclosure until you shared an incredible opportunity. Remember, your blessings come from the Lord. He sees you and He knows your heart.
