When I was a teenager, I was trying to please people. I kept changing who I was to please the people I was with. And so once I just decided I wasn’t going to do that anymore. I was going to live my life to please God. And so from that day to this, that’s been my aim. Some people don’t understand, but you can’t please everybody anyway.
Desperation compels us to pray with fervent, focused faith – especially when we have no one else to turn to. God honors our faith when we place it in him alone – with no back-up plan, no other recourse, no other way out. He hears and answers our desperate heart cry, because he loves to show himself strong on our behalf.
I believe that our heavenly Father, our Savior, saved my mother from loneliness because of her daily walk with the Lord Jesus, He was the love of her life. I saw that in her life. It was her love for the Lord Jesus, with whom she walks every day, that made me want to love Him and walk with Him like that.
