Teasure In Heaven!

Eighteen months ago I started a project wondering why God brought me here. The hours were long, the stress was high, the work load very heavy, and the co-workers hard tough men. Why would God send me to work here on this project and to the world I walked away from many years ago?

What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them has gone astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountains and go in search of the one that went astray?
Matthew 18:12

At work many men came and many did not have what it took to perform this task yet early on I met this man who was in his early fifties and was somewhat new in his walk with Christ we became friends. Because of the nature of the work the names shall be changed for the good of all, so he shall be known as Chuck.
Chuck and I would have many great conversations about life with Christ. One day Chuck was telling me about his grandchildren and how they were being raised without any knowledge of God and how he did not know how to teach them about Jesus. I told I have a tool for you so I gave him a copy of “Donkey Tells” and said to do not worry the little story will walk them through the Good News of the Gospel and is told in a way they will understand and keep them captive. When you are alone with them read it to them and answer their questions as you go along. Pray for their hearts to be open to the Good News before you start and the Holy Spirit will do the rest.
Chuck took the little book and did as I as ask and he kept me informed too his progress. He was surprised by the story line and how his grandchildren wanted him to keep reading to them. It took time before he finely finished the and one morning he told “It worked I prayed with my grandsons and they now have Jesus in their hearts. The boy`s ages are from 7 to 10 years of age and they now are going to church with Chuck.
Three weeks ago on a Monday morning before work I got a text-message from Chuck, “Please pray for my seven-year old grandson he was hit by a car and I will not be in today.
The next Monday morning I met Chuck in the parking lot and he was barely holding himself together as he told me they took Steven off life support and he is gone. I began to weep with Chuck and prayed the Holy Spirit over us. Then these words came to me, “Steven is in heaven and you prayed with to have Jesus in his heart. He is in the arms of Jesus right now and He shall always be forever and ever, and you shall see him again soon. You did your job as his Grandfather and gave him Jesus.”
Chuck said, “No you gave him Jesus it was your words in “Donkey Tells” that showed him the way.”
I replied, “It was the Holy Spirit who gave me the story and many, many others along the way who helped me get the story published who gave your grand son Jesus. We all have an equal reward in the saving of this young soul. One thing when we get to heaven will you introduce me to Steven?”
Chuck came back with, “Steven is waiting for you to get to heaven he has a hug for you.”

  1. James this is such an amazing story! Sad yet at the same time happy. Little Steven in the arms of Jesus and God used you and ‘Chuck’ in such a might big way, Wow! Keep being obedient lives are being changed!

  2. Amen and what a story James!

  3. I’m so happy to her the rewarding outcome of your endeavors. Isn’t it interesting that the most important thing in this world is the world we’re going to, someday? I’s so thankful Chuck has this assurance for his grandson.

  4. Let the beauty of Jesus be seen in you…vw

  5. So many times we have no idea how the Lord will use us but if we are obedient, as you have been, the rewards will be made known to us. Praise be to God.

  6. Great inspiration. Continue to do the work of Him who sent you. God bless.

  7. And we sometimes wonder why people come into our lives. They enter our circle and become part of our life plan…always for a reason. Blessings!
