What would happen if we said YES to God?

This became embedded in my soul when God asked me to go to Africa in September of 2008. The outcome? 786 souls were saved in 34 days! Am I throwing around numbers to impress someone? No. I am throwing them around to proclaim that GOD is GOD. I am just a common individual who knows who she is not, but walks in who HE IS. What is God asking you to do right now? When we know that we know - it is Him asking. Say yes, obey with no hesitation.

Romans 3:23
” For all have sinned and fall short of the GLORY OF GOD”
24. ” and all are justified freely by HIS grace through
redemption that came by Christ Jesus.”

( I know this is a Grandma thing ) ….but this is how
I seen it and it touched me deeply…..

Tanner was up, the LAST race of the meet….
Starts at 5:00 ends at around 8:00 ….
and it is GOOD FAMILY TIME…. love it !

But it was…THE LAST RACE of that meet.

RELAY –
Tanner is the last leg…
Something happened, in the first three….
That Tanner was like, at least –
a HALF A LAP…Down,
many had left the stands, all others
had finished …and so in the stands it
FELT LIKE THE MEET WAS OVER…

But there was Tanner, just starting HIS LEG…
“WAY BEHIND”…….
and giving it all he had…..
but NO CHANCE at all of winning…
but NO CHANCE at all of doing anything but,
finishing.

And what was going on INSIDE THE TRACK…
in the GRASS ?
Was his little blonde sister….
With her purple sleeves….
and her RED TRACK Shirt…
and her hair tide back….
RUNNING, right along side…
” HER BROTHER ”
ALL THE WAY TO THE FINISH…….

It stopped you…
It gave you a deep sense of LOVE….
IT gave you ” I am your SISTER ”
I am in your life for YOU…………
not me..
She gained nothing by RUNNING WITH HIM….
HE GAINED everything by Having her love and support….

And so it is with JESUS CHRIST…
What did HE GAIN, by dying for us ?
What did WE GAIN, by HIM dying for us ?

All = everyone…
Where ever they are in the race
Where ever their lives started FROM…
Some from homes with Mom’s + Dad’s who LOVE JESUS
Some from homes with no Mom or Dad…
Some start the race w/ physical difficulties..
Some start the race smart, some not ?
Some………..no ALL…

For ALL have sinned…
We can’t exclude the people that drive us nuts.
We can’t exclude the people that just are…
We can’t exclude NO ONE… on this earth……

We need to RUN BESIDE THEM…
What was in Reesey’s heart to even think of running beside ?
What was in her mind….. TANNER was..
where he was AT…
and how much she loved him….
And she wanted to encourage him along
HIS…HIS….HIS RACE ..
not hers…….I still can not stop thinking of it….

I pray God embeds and I own….and I will run…
beside ALL…….no excuses….ALL.

I am not writing this to say….this about me…
or that….
I am writing this to HONOR a man that impacted my LIFE…
and still does.

I can remember the day I raised my hand when they
came in Study Hall and said,
” we still have openings in Industrial Arts.”
I raised my hand…… my life was changed.
I came under the Teaching
I came under the character building
I came under the individual of Mr. Deerhake
” Attention to detail….
Attention to foundation of doing things right…
Attention to doing things within yourself, how he said…..
Attention to caring and molding….
A quiet man, yet FUN !
* walking in on us having Dale Burgess to the ceiling on
a motor chain, and a “smirk” …. yet discipline.

I got pregnant my Senior year of H.S. …….
I took Gabe to his house….
Mr. + Mrs. Deerhake welcomed us… with OPEN ARMS.
Mr. and Mrs. Deerhake…bought Gabe and Tug gifts for Christmas…
something special at Halloween….
Today…” did you see the picture of Tug in an Indian suit ?”
We would go 2 days before Christmas to their house religiously…
” And talk…and listen….and feel loved ”
He never disrespected me….
I always RESPECTED him, HIGHLY….HIGHLY.
He would trace every tool in the shop …
and that is where it belonged…….
You went to his house….it looked like his shop…
inside and out….it was HIS CHARACTER….
INSIDE AND OUT…..
HIS FAMILY….the same.
Mrs. Deerhake…the same.
HIS CHILDREN …the same.
He watched some of his grandchildren and he would talk of
them with deep love…..and gentleness and kindness ..
And I thot , wow…. how LUCKY are THEY ?
HE COULD ONLY IMPACT YOU WELL…………
HE COULD ONLY IMPACT YOU POSITIVELY………
Who can you ~ say that about ?
MR. DEERHAKE……………….it is the FACT of who he was.

I am ever grateful to GOD alone….
for MR. DEERHAKE in my life. in the Name of JESUS !

9 1/2 years….My Mom has been in Heaven…….
Today out on the water…..
My heart literally HURT….
The intensity of love….
The intensity of missing my Mom…..

I love to think of
Mothers Day w/ my Mom….
Going upstairs and seeing
“wrapping paper I made her w/ ” MOTHER ”
on it, I had made her……”
* she saved used wrapping paper ”

TREASURE ~ is a word that comes to mind….
One time w/ rolling her in her wheel chair into
her bedroom…she looked into my eyes and said,
” you are going to miss me ”

She was right….
I never knew, the depth of missing someone
I knew I LOVED HER INTENSELY….
I know…..I am so thankful for her salvation…..

” I thank the LORD UPON EVERY, EVERY , EVERY
remembrance of you…..”

I honor my Mom …w/ every thot of her tomorrow…
I honor my Mom….w/ what she taught ~ me was not in vain.
Every aspect… a list that is forever being unfolded
in my life……

I honor my Mom…
I worship JESUS CHRIST……..HER SAVIOR / HER LORD
MY SAVIOR / MY LORD….

One thing My Mom and I can still do together :
” is to worship JESUS CHRIST, in Heaven
and on earth….. ”

Marilyn Marie Conrad….in front of JESUS CHRIST………….
