When a Stranger Asked to Pray for Me

It’s amazing how God works. What I thought was going to be a plane ride for a girls weekend turned into much, much more. My story is about a sweet girl I met on an airplane. Actually, we didn’t really meet until she ran after me once we departed from the plane. After chasing me down, she told me the Lord had put me on her heart and that she wanted to pray for me. Fast forward from June 2013, {Read More}

Living a Life Interrupted

During a study at church about serving like Jesus served, it was noted that being used by God isn’t always convenient. Being interrupted is to be expected, even embraced, if we want to be God’s instrument. It got me thinking. When I have failed to obey God and speak to someone about Christ’s unconditional love, does that mean God’s entire plan was ruined? Does it mean that person never got to hear the good news? That’s a chilling thought. Proverbs {Read More}

Forgiveness is a Journey

If I had a formula for forgiveness, I’d be a very rich woman. It’s something we all struggle with at some time in our lives. While praying the Lord’s Prayer, it hit me. When I said, “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us,” I thought, Oh no! I need God to forgive me more than I forgive others! I once made a list of people that I resented, and why. I presented it to God {Read More}

My First Mentor and Guidepost

I don’t even remember her name. She was a friendly resident in a row of community-supported retirement apartments on the edge of Belvidere Park. I was a new reporter for the local newspaper, doing a story on the apartments, and she invited me in to see hers. I think there was tea involved, and after talking about her living experience there, she directed the conversation to other things. Fresh out of school and lonely in a new town, I was {Read More}

Cindy Sampson ~ A Faithful Testimony
