This weekend Lord I saw with my own eyes your restorative power. I saw a man, who I visited only two years ago in a prison, now living free — not just physically free from prison, but living free in Christ Jesus. I watched him interact with his wife and child in a loving way and all I could do was praise you dear God. I pray Lord that you forgive my doubt that you can change seemingly impossible things. May I not lose faith that you can transform lives. Help me Lord to trust your perfect timing; help me to grow in my faith in you dear God; to expand my belief that you are who you say you are. Your promises are true.
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” – Matthew 17:20

Today I gave counsel on this very line to a young single missionary gal. He is able to comfort, give wisdom and peace no matter our circumstances. Then for a fleeting moment I heard the enemy lie, Betty, do you really believe what you said? I am so grateful that God hears my inner voices too…the enemy and my own.
May God’s peace surround you this day: may he continue to fill you with his wisdom and protect you from the lies of the evil one. Thanks for the comment, for sharing your experience.
Amen! Your promises are true, Lord!
Indeed. Praise God!
Yes… Our God is a God of restoration! I worked that environment for 39 years and watched the Lord change the hearts of many men, women and children. God is so awesome!!!
May God bless you for your work. Such a joy to see changed hearts.
Wow. God is so good to give us eyes to see His miracles.
Amen. I remember picking up a friend on his release date and after some lessons learned. One thing he definitely did not say was, “Hey take me back to jail I miss that place!” Blessings
I’m grateful for the group of volunteers and inmates who nurtured his faith in Christ. Thanks for sharing your experience.
Wonderful post, so encouraging as I pray for God to change me.
Praise God. May we continue to let him restore us.
