The Lord prepares a way for me to freely share the Gospel
Matthew 5:39-45 “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone wants to sue you and take away your tunic, let him have your cloak also. And whoever compels you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks you, and from him who wants to borrow from you do not turn away. “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love your enemies, bless those who curse you, do good to those who hate you, and pray for those who spitefully use you and persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven; for He makes His sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. (NKJV)”
In my personal testimony, I shared what my life was like before I received Jesus Christ into my heart. I spoke about how I desperately cried out to Him from a local jail holding cell and how drastically my life changed as a result of receiving the Lord into my heart. At the time, I thought my written testimony was complete. However, my story wasn’t finished. It was just beginning! I was about to experience the second part of my new journey and the wonderful blessings the Lord had planned for my life.
I decided to call my previous supervisor to discuss the issue of court. I explained that I had not initiated a new claim, but he was too angry and defensive to listen. He told me that he had been busy gathering witnesses to testify against me. Why? As he spoke, I thought, "Maybe he is still hurt by the ‘old Donna.’ "
That same weekend, I led my family in urgent prayer for my past employer. We gathered, and my young son, husband and I clasped hands, and sat in front of my prayer board. I asked God to bless my past supervisor and any other enemies. “Please Lord, send your helper to convict their hearts to forgive my transgressions. Cover them with the warmth of Your love and the peace that passes all understanding. In Your Holy Son’s name, Amen.”
