Discipleship Prayer Request March 07, 2015

A week of sadness but also a humble joy.

The sadness came when I heard Carlos, who paroled in December was under house arrest for 60 days after becoming intoxicated. It is sad in that I had very high hopes for Carlos, not that it is all over for Carlos, but to see one leave with so much passion to 'do it right this time' Praise God he was not readmitted. I've come to know there are many who like Carlos, who will boldly say they're going to do it right but stumble shortly after going out the gate. It is hard for me who comes to love those God has put in my path but I keep my faith that Carlos will in do time 'do it right' by putting all he has in the hands of Christ.

The humble joy came with a note paroling student Ron gave me. In part he wrote '... Thank you so much for being with me in my darkest hour here in Sheridan. I cannot emphasize how much of a blessing you are to us here. May the Lord Jesus bless you and be your light in the darkness of this world. God bless you dear brother.'

It is the note of Ron and of other notes similar to Ron's that God uses for me to persevere through the stumbling of Carlos. There is no assurance Ron himself will not stumble, but I have faith that on that day, my heart will flood with tears when I see the fruit of my service and your prayers for the Kingdom, where Ron, Carlos and many more will not be stumbling but standing tall by the transforming work of the Holy Spirit in their lives.

To Him be the glory
