Uncle Mac

This is " Uncle Mac"- my husband's great uncle. My husband, Rob went to Atlanta to spend his summers with Uncle Mac and Aunt Cindy. Rob and I started dating when I was 17, this wonderful couple was two of the first people that I met in his family. I was immediately considered part of their family and I fell in love with them. Most important- they love Jesus. This shows by the way they live their life. Aunt Cindy died over a year ago. Even though Uncle Mac was so sad, he remained true to fact that God is good and that he would never leave us nor forsake us. Every night he would go to the cemetery, where she was buried, walk and pray. He told us about one night in particular, one that he felt like he couldn't take the sadness anymore. He cried out to Jehovah-Shalom- the giver of peace( Judges 6:24) He needed peace and comfort. He had not even said Amen when a car pulled up to him and told him not to be afraid, but that as he, the man in the car, drove by the cemetery the Holy Spirit told him to pull into the cemetery and tell that man, Uncle Mac, that Jesus loves him. WOW... that was all Uncle Mac needed, to be reminded that God will never, has never, or ever will leave him. Uncle Mac is still sad, but now able to move on. To enjoy this life for what it is worth, and most importantly he is storing up treasures in heaven.
Who is a witness to you? Who are you witnessing to today? Our life is a testimony!!!!! Please do not waste time. You do not have to be a crazy person screaming Jesus Saves. But people do watch the way we live. Lets show someone today, the love of Jesus!!!!!!!
