The Daily Mercies: Radically Saving Robin

daily_mercies_sidebar1

 

It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not.  They are new every morning:  great is thy faithfulness.  Lamentations 3:22-24

Recently, my friend, Robin, shared with me about God radically changing her life.  Robin and I were friends as teenagers.  You can see the 80’s Robin here.  We were recently reunited after Robin’s 20th high school reunion.

After Thanksgiving, Robin became very sick.  During this time, God marvelously answered her prayers to guide her back on the right path.  She was unaware that I had been praying for her as well.  The visitation she described reminded me of Saul on the road to Damascus.  The Lord gave her revelations of His plans for her.  She is presently in the Air Guard and feels confident that she is right where she needs to be.  Robin has a very tender, repentant heart towards the Lord.  Over the past week and a half, she has experienced a process of grief over sin, enormous burden for loved ones, great joy and a “weight lifted” from her.  “I’ve never felt so clean before,” she explained.  She is overwhelmed with a deep love for others.  This reminds me of Romans 5:5:  …for the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.

The Lord has continually opened her eyes to things that she is writing down and has not yet fully shared with me.  “We’re in the end times, Rena,” she told me.  She is eager to get well and go wherever the Lord would send her and speak to whomever will listen.  She’s like a sponge.  Over the past week, she’s called me with many questions eager to learn and grow.  I’ve prayed with her, cried with her and rejoiced with her.  Robin told me that she has always believed.  But now she is in a place of complete surrender.  The difference, I told her, is that now she is willing to make Him Lord.  So many people will turn to Christ as Savior, but not as Lord.  I’ve heard it said before, “if He’s not Lord OF ALL, He’s not Lord AT ALL.”  I have to agree.  As Robin says, “things are different now.”  He met her where she was and turned her completely around.

Isn’t He amazing?  Robin gave me permission to share her story.  More details of her testimony will be shared in the upcoming weeks.  She mentioned that she may share some of it herself.

Robin is waiting for the results of blood work.  She is currently diagnosed with a sinus infection and bronchitis, but is concerned it may be worse.  Please pray for her healing, for His hedge and continued growth for Robin.  Also pray for wisdom and grace for Robin as she confronts areas of her life as well as relationships that He is changing.

Her recent journey reminds me of Chris Rice’ hymn, Come To Jesus.  I hope you’ll take a moment to listen.  The lyrics are included.

 

Stay tuned for more details of Robin’s story.  Rejoicing with the Angels,

He is so awesome isn’t He? His love draws all people..just today, in church four people accepted Christ! It was so touching and awesome! And yes, I agree with Robin, we are in the very last of the last days.

With that realization comes joy, but also a great responsibility and burden to see others saved before time runs out…
