Monthly Messages from Sally Weiesnbach, Ark Founder & Director of Operations
Today is the first day of the rest of my life. I am 88 ½ years old. God is showing and telling me what I need to know one day at a time. He is not through with me yet. He is blessing me, revealing new things to me, and making changes. Praise, praise, praise!
What’s going on in your life and family? If we don’t ask, biblically, we won’t receive. So I ask and, day by day, 24 hours at a time, he is showing and telling me His will one day at a time.
Originally, the pandemic kept me from getting my left knee surgery. He (our God) knows the best – and when and where! He is helping me seek the best; not just the good. (Scripture ref) I am searching more on this in His word. He doesn’t just want us to do good, He wants our best!
He is using Dr. Charles Stanley and his Reflections program to encourage me that the best (His will) is for now. We are still working on temporary locations for the Ark facilities.
Easter had good news – the best news. Garry and I finally took a full Sunday’s rest. Do recall that rest is a commandment. We each need to rest in Him and with our families. God first, then family, recharge after meditation in His word. Then we can hear His call to service and ministry to others.
God is using children more than ever in my life. He wants us to love purely. Easter Sunday, I received a written “love note” from a child. He gave me this note after church. We hugged and kissed each other. Then God had me tell him, “You are part of God’s ministry with me. What I do is not always easy, but God says He forgives all. We help those in and out of prison, veterans, and people with PTSD, abused children and adults.”
The child grabbed me and held me tight. Then, his mama came. We were together – with God, Jesus, and the Holy Spirit – wanting God’s best in all things, all times.
“The sum of thy word is truth; and every one of thy righteous ordinances endures forever.” (Psalm 119:160, ASV) “The Lord is not slow about His promise, as some count slowness, but is patience toward you, not wishing for any to perish but for all to come to redemption.” (2 Peter 1:9, NASV) “Do not say, ‘I will repay evil,’ wait for the Lord, and He will deliver you.” (Proverbs 20:22, ESV) “But I tell you not to resist an evil person. But whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also.” (Matthew 6:39, KJV)
