A day of fasting and prayer was all I needed to see what the Holy Spirit wanted me to do. The day after Thanksgiving, November 23, 2007 I spend fasting and praying. The days following, the Holy Spirit was putting things in my heart that he wanted me to do, finding my stepmother was one of those things. See it had been 35 years since I had seen her and I didn’t even know if she was still alive. I knew if she was, she would be 76 years old. I did a people search for her and found where she had last lived in 2005 so I decided to take the two hour drive and see if I could find her. I located her home, there was a little hanging basket with magazines with her name on them but no one was at home.
The Lord can turn anything into a blessing if we trust him! Our scars are our testimonies.
And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose. Romans 8:28
UPDATE~ On September 23, 2010 two years and 10 months from the date of that visit my stepmother passed away. Whether she turned to the Lord I do not know but I do know it was the Lord’s will that I forgave her.
