Oh my goodness, just 11 weeks ago this man, Tom, was on the street, no home & no hope. He came to church through a sandwich, gave his life to Jesus and today he was on stage with his family & friend dedicating his son to God.
These are his own words; "About 10 or 11 weeks ago I was sat on a street corner somewhere around the city and a guy or a woman, I can't remember who it was, said, hey if you're hungry, go to the Guildhall about 1 o' clock and they will give you a sandwich and a cuppa tea. So that's what I did. I would come each week and each week I started to feel like a hypocrite. But you guys started speaking to me. I started to listen and to do something about my own problems. And it's through that, that we are all stood together on this stage now. And my son will be blessed by God."
Wow, isn't that so precious. Don't underestimate what God can do through the seemingly small and insignificant things that you do. You may not be the one who preaches or sings on the stage, you may just be the person who prepared a few sandwiches for church or who pours the coffee on Sunday. But it was through the sandwich that you made or the coffee that you poured or the little conversation that you had with Tom that made him feel welcome, loved and accepted. All the little tiny things that we do together add up to one more life won for Jesus. One more family reconciled. One more little boy with a future and a hope. One more neighbour hood impacted. One more.... who knows. We simply don't know where this will lead, we don't know who Tom's testimony will reach, we just don't know what is going to happen as a result of this one sandwich!
It was so beautiful to see Astin get dedicated today and to watch them as a family :)ReplyDelete
I have seen the difference in Tommy and its truly amazing to see what God has done and is doing in his life.
I want to make sure I never take anything I do for Gods Kingdom for granted!!!
I'm really very excited to see what God has in store for Tommy and his family ......:-D
Very, very, very, very precious. Jesus loves families. So sorry I couldn't be there physically :) My prayers were with you and for you.ReplyDelete
