“I don’t think I’ve ever seen anyone cry so hard.”
This past July I sat next to a 47-year old man who had attended one of our events. In the service I had shared about Jesus and Peter walking on the water.
“I just don’t know how much of that I can believe,” he said, with tears in his eyes. “I want to believe but how can I believe in a ‘good’ God when all I’ve ever seen is bad.”
He continued to tell me about his childhood and how, as an adult, he had gone to prison for attempted murder.
“I even have a 9-year old daughter that I’ve never met,” he said.
We talked. He struggled. God was moving in his heart. We talked about his life. We talked about Scripture, about how Jesus had called Peter to come and how Peter had stepped out of the boat. He didn’t need to have all the answers to simply trust.
I walked him through the plan of salvation. He asked questions and then he told me that he needed time to think. I asked if I could pray for him and as I prayed, he began to sob harder than I have ever seen anyone cry. Tears literally dripped in a stream from his face.
I gave him my phone number and told him to call and let me know how he was doing. He talked to me the next day.
“Last night,” he said, “I was washing my clothes and a pastor was there doing his laundry as well. We talked for three hours and I decided to surrender my life to Jesus Christ.”
It’s amazing how God puts people in the right place at the right time to share His love. God still changes lives!
