Today is Pitana’s born again birthday (11 yrs old). It is also the day he got baptized. I am so thankful for the work of the Holy Spirit in him. The first 4 months of our marriage were not easy as I waited for him to surrender his life to Jesus. But praise God when he finally did, he was truly converted- all the way! His hunger for the Word has increased over the years. He gave all to Jesus and eventually answered the call to give God all his time. It has not always been easy to be radical for Jesus because of the persecution that comes with it. But I have watched him keep his eyes on the eternal reward and the crown that awaits him yonder. Though I shared the gospel with him, he has since become my pastor. And I am grateful to see and know that he lives what he preaches.
Please help me celebrate Jesus in him. What wonders the Lord can do!
May I ask that you take some time today to :
1) Pray for Pitana
2) Bless him. I know He has fed many; encouraged many; discipled many and fathered many. Why not encourage him today, be it in word or deed?
Here is a picture of Pitana before he got saved. Can you recognize him? Of course not, the old man died 11 yrs ago. He is a new creature in Christ Jesus! Hallelujah!!
Above all that I appreciate of Pitana’s faith, is his desire to make Jesus known to our family on a daily basis. It would be easy to take off on a mission by himself, but he chooses to go with all of us so that all of us together can witness the goodness of God.
Darling, I love you. Jesus, I love you even more. Master, thank you. What a good God you are.
“And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.” 1 Thessalonians 5:23-24
