Then I asked the question, “Oh, so where do you guys go to church?”. “We don’t” Jen replied. I soon learned that although we shared a common love for family and for kids – we also shared many differences. Jen wanted nothing to do with the Christian religion. Nothing. She prayed to a higher power. Believed there were energies in the world. Didn’t understand my love for God, and didn’t want to. It was as if her mind was veiled to God and His Truth (2 Cor 4:3-4)
You know what I did? I started praying for Jen and her family. Praying that this veil would be taken away. My Bible study started praying for Jen. My husband, our kids were praying. Friends’ friends that didn’t even know Jen and her family were praying. Praying that this family would know God's great love for them!
It has been amazing to watch God work so powerfully in Jen's life over the past year! God clearly has a very special and significant plan for Jen and her family! Most recently, she has handled the trauma of Tom's heart attack and his road to recovery with such faith in God and tremendous strength in Him. She is truly an inspiration!
"Whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away." 2 Corinthians 3:16
Let's pray: Lord, thank You for the Torresson family. Thank You for their powerful story ~ Your beautiful story of love and redemption and grace. Thank You for removing the veils so that they could see You! Lord I pray for others that are living far from You...our neighbors and co-workers and family members and friends...Lord, would You please prompt us to pray for them more specifically and would You continue to draw them to You. For Your Glory Alone. Amen.
P.S. Thank you, dear Jen, for letting me share your story...His story. Can't wait until Memorial Day Weekend! I love you! :)
P.S.S. Thank you, Misty Wondergem, for taking such a fun picture of us at Tom's Celebration party! You are an AMAZING photographer! Thanks for sharing your work! :)
