And the lord said to the bondman, Go out into the ways and fences and compel to come in, that my house may be filled. Luke 14:23 The Darby Translation

When nothing seems to help, I go and look at a stone-cutter hammering away at his rock, perhaps a hundred times without as much as a crack showing in it. Yet at the hundred and first blow, it will split in two and I know it was not that blow that did it but all that had gone before. Author unknown
Are there times when like the stone-cutter it seems as though there is no evident of your hard work? You have been praying so hard for a relationship, ministry, unsaved spouse, wayward children (grandchildren). Must like the stone-cutter, at times it seems as though God is not hearing our spiritual blows of the proverbial hammer. Having been there many times, I understand this. Still I know that after months, yes and even years that rock splits. Right before your eyes you see the proof that prayer does work. Right before your eyes you now see the fruit of a ministry, the salvation of your spouse or perhaps a wayward child (such as me) comes back to the Lord.
"Keep on asking, and you will be given what you ask for. Keep on looking, and you will find. Keep on knocking, and the door will be opened. For everyone who asks, receives. Everyone who seeks, finds. And the door is opened to everyone who knocks." Matthew 7:7-8 NLT
Who am I? I am a princess. For my Father is the King of kings and Lord of lords. This statement is of great importance because I was not always a princess. Once I was simply a lost soul dwelling in a pit. Then one day all things in my life changed. My Father, God reached down and lifted me from the pit giving me new life. In Him, I have found peace, love and hope. This is my greatest role by far for in it I find joy to be all the titles that follow me. Finish reading about me in my pages listed above.
