Moment by moment...days passed. Kathryn, many times went down to sit with Stephen. She held him and talked with him herself. Her love and bond grew.
I wonder what her conversations could have been.
Perhaps, as mine had been at one time…
“Lord…I speak to you because these people talk so much about you. You are so real to them. Can you be as real to me? The things they have shared with me…they are true…aren’t they?”
As time passed, she found that Stephen was becoming a very important part of her life. There was so much for her to think upon. So very much.
As we witness of God’s saving grace to the lost, we cannot possibly know the depths of the heart. Only God can. He alone, knows motives and will.
Shall not God search this out? For he knoweth the secrets of the heart. Psalm 44:21
Search me, O God, and know my heart: try me, and know my thoughts: And see if there be any wicked way in me, and lead me in the way everlasting. Psalm 139:23
I the LORD search the heart, I try the reins, even to give every man according to his ways, and according to the fruit of his doings. Jeremiah 17:10
And ye shall seek me, and find me, when ye shall search for me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13
I thank the LORD that he enables us to be his spokes people. To testify of all he has done and will do for those who love him, trust him and live for him. Oh the wonders of it all…the peace and comfort of his care.
We prayed daily for Kathryn’s salvation.
