I opened my e-mail up today and had to say out loud, "I knew it!" There in my "Junk Mail" was a PrisonerAlert.com e-mail. A few weeks back I wrote a post about the freedom we have here in the States and our responsibility with that freedom. I told you that I would be writing letters from that point on and doing what I could to support my brothers and sisters in Christ who were imprisoned for their faith and then...I forgot. I got busy with my life and all that it means to be Cherri Thompson in her own free world. But God is good...He is not going to let me stray off the path too far anymore (Thank You, Lord, for that). Last night on our way home from spending time with our children and grandchildren, Peter and I got on the subject of the what is happening to the Christians in the Muslim countries. Then it dawned on me I had never even taken Voice of the Martyrs or PrisonerAlert off of junk mail status. I told Peter that I was going to do that right away and begin my letter writing but by this morning I had forgotten AGAIN.
So early this morning I opened my Bible study and what does Kay have at the VERY BEGINNING SO CHERRI CANNOT POSSIBLY MISS IT???? You saw it: Hebrews 10: 32-39 ...the very verses that struck my heart the first time I read them in this study. I knew then that when I opened my e-mail this morning and went to my "junk mail" there would be an e-mail from PrisonerAlert.com and sure enough this is what greeted me this morning:
PrisonerAlert Update: Zhang Rongliang
and that is why I said out loud this morning, though no one was with me in the house except my dog, Ben: "I knew it!"
So no longer are they relegated to my "junk mail," to be easily ignored. He has given me another chance to be obedient...and I am grateful. He makes up for my humanness...and more than that...He makes up for my Cherriness.
Oh, Lord, Thank You!! Keep speaking! You know I hear and obey eventually! Just please, Lord, help me to more quickly hear and obey!
Well, my friends, I have to go...I have letters to write:)
Love to you....
