I am a 73-year-old widow who lives in Ontario, Canada. I was married for 47 years and we raised 6 children. The Lord apprehended us in 1974. A few days ago I stumbled across Pastor Colin Smith’s sermons on the beatitudes. Let me tell you, they answered so many questions for me, especially “hungering and thirsting after righteousness” because, even after 45 years, I still find myself with this insatiable desire to know Him. It is an ache in my innermost being. I was beginning to think there was something wrong with me. There were so few people who spoke the same hidden language, held the same desires, so I stopped sharing and just plodded on. Thank you and I pray with you that we may know Him. As Job said after his testing, “I have heard of you by the hearing of my ear, but now my eyes do see you.” Oh that we may see Him high and lifted up with His train filling the temple, that we may know Him.
Your sister in Christ,
