A 20 Year Old Promise Fulfilled

It was my junior year of high school and I was heading out the door when something on TV caught my eye. Billy Graham was giving an invitation to follow Jesus and many were responding. I sat down and watched as people poured to the front. Tears began to fall down my face as I watched these lives being changed right in front of my eyes. At that point, I heard the Lord whisper, "This is what you are going to do with your life." I had no idea what this meant. The only indication as to what the Lord wanted me to do with my life was back a few years before when He told me that my husband was going to be in the ministry and I was going to be very involved. Now the Lord was telling me I was going to do that (that meaning a Billy Graham invitation). I did not truly see that vision come to fruition until last weekend. We were a part of a Billy Graham crusade in Canada. Brock spoke the first two nights and Will Graham (Billy Graham's grandson) spoke the last night. During the invitation, Will invited Brock to come and stand by his side. As the two of them were standing there, that word from the Lord 20 years ago came back to me. Tears began to roll down my cheeks again. The Lord is faithful!
