The heart of the Father is breaking. It grieves him to see so many of his precious children fall into Satan’s hands. He cherishes even the worst evil-doers more than we can imagine. Abba-Father has been reaching out to them in countless ways, including through saints and mystics.
God is mighty, but despises no one; / he is mighty, and firm in his purpose…. But if people are bound in chains, / held fast by cords of affliction, / he tells them what they have done — / that they have sinned arrogantly. / He makes them listen to correction and commands them to repent of their evil. / If they obey and serve him, / they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity / and their years in contentment. / But if they do not listen, they will perish by the sword / and die without knowledge. (Job 36:5,8-12 NIV)
When the Father’s love doesn’t reach the hearts of his lost children, he extends his mercy. When that doesn’t work, he disciplines them. Chastisements are the lion’s den that we walk into when we turn away from God. When our lives get torn apart by the lions of sinful decisions, we either turn to God for rescue or we let the lions devour us.
Our sins create our chastisements (the lion’s den) but it’s our Good Father who chooses how we are disciplined (how we are bitten). He sets us up to succeed, not to fail. He permits the Devil to torture us when we open ourselves to demons — but only in ways that have the potential to sanctify us.
It pains Abba deeply to discipline us, just like any good parent who punishes the child out of heartfelt love and concern. And like every good parent, he reluctantly but firmly expresses his love through anger when nothing else works. It’s anger towards the lion. Our Divine Daddy hates all sins because they feed us to lions.
When Jesus said to Peter, “Get behind me, Satan! You’re a stumbling block to me; you’re not thinking about the concerns of God, but merely human concerns!” he was angry. Was he calling Peter “Satan”? If he was, then his anger was directed to Peter. Or was he calling out Satan who used Peter to try to tempt Jesus to forego his mission? (See Matthew 16:23.)
I imagine that Jesus saw the Devil standing behind Peter. The Devil had used Peter’s vulnerabilities to trigger a rebuke against Jesus: “Never, Lord!” Peter had said. “You shall never go to Jerusalem and let them kill you!” (Satan tried to tempt Jesus throughout his ministry, not just at his 40-day fast at the beginning of it.) So Jesus rescued Peter by getting the Devil off his back. And he reminded the Devil that he, Jesus, will always be out in front winning battles for his followers.
Abba’s anger is never vindictive, hateful, or spiteful. It’s the wrath of a warrior king who stands up to the enemy and demands the evil to stop. While he does this, if we are in any way on the enemy’s side, we too feel his anger.
Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all. Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but God disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in his holiness. No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it. (Hebrews 12:7-11 NIV)
Let’s take a look at how this happens. We all have conversion stories, turning points in our lives when we repented from something that was sinful and more fully embraced the True God to follow his path of holiness. How did God get our attention? Often it’s by “hitting rock bottom”, a hardship or trial that, from God’s perspective, is a loving chastisement.
They almost always involve a mystical experience. For me, it was the supernatural gift of instantly believing that the Eucharist is truly Jesus Christ in person (which I described on Day 12). For others, it can be much more dramatic.
Alan Ames is a recovered alcoholic who had been raised Catholic but was far from God. Then he had a mystical experience that revealed the love of Abba-Father most clearly. Afterward, he became a supernaturally gifted mystic with a ministry of healing, speaking, and writing. He receives messages from the Holy Trinity and from saints. He has the written support of his archbishop in Perth, Australia: first Archbishop Barry Hickey for 17 years and then Archbishop Costello and Auxllliary Bishop Don Sproxton.
Listen to his story as told to Christine Watkins for her book, The Warning: Testimonies and Prophecies of the Illumination of Conscience, published by Queen of Peace Media. As you read it, look for Abba-Father’s love in the events that unfolded.
In 1993, when I was forty, I traveled frequently for my job as a sales manager for a pharmaceutical company in Perth, Australia. On one of my work trips, I flew to a city called Adelaide and went through my monotonous routine of checking into to a hotel and sitting on the bed to watch television. Though normally a heavy drinker, I hadn’t downed any booze because I didn’t generally consume alcohol on a work day.
While I was watching the evening news, all of a sudden, directly in front of me appeared a horrific-looking man who reached his arms forward and began to choke me. He had dark skin and bulging eyes, with lips drawn back in a snarl that exposed his ghastly teeth; but I was less concerned with his appearance than the fact that he was strangling me!
I tried to use my martial arts moves against him, having been captain of the Australian team in the Aikido World Championships, but my hands passed right through his body. Nothing I could do would stop his stranglehold. After a few minutes of useless fighting, the veins in my neck were about to burst, and I believed I was taking my very last breath.
Then an audible voice in my head said, “Pray the Our Father!”
That was the last idea I would have come up with, but in desperation, I started to pray it, and the strangling stopped. Then I stopped and the strangling resumed. Every time I ceased to pray, the strangling started, and every time I resumed, the strangling stopped. To add to this nightmare, I was trapped and couldn’t move. I tried repeatedly to get out of the hotel room, but the terrifying man kept me pinned in a stranglehold — and this went on all night.
The experience was so strange and frightening that I thought I’d gone mad: “That’s it. I’m absolutely crazy.” I’d heard of people who drank in excess and would see pink elephants traveling up the wall, so I figured I was one of them. Then I saw my neck in the large hotel mirror. To my amazement, it was bruised; therefore, I couldn’t deny the attack was real. Yet I couldn’t accept it either.
The next day, I heard the same voice in my head that had told me to pray the Our Father. He told me he was an angel whom God had sent to help me. I didn’t believe in the existence of angels. To me, they were nothing more than make-believe fairies. He said God had sent him because God loved me and wanted my love.
“If God exists,” I answered back to this “fairy” in my head, “surely he wouldn’t love someone like me!” I had good reason to think I was a poor candidate for love. God had always been the furthest thought from my mind, and troublemaking the first.
His Catholic mother tried to raise him in the Faith, but he rejected it. He couldn’t believe that God was real.
At age twelve, I started drinking alcohol and was brought before a court judge for taking money out of the candle box in St. Edmund’s Church in Edmonton, London. At age fourteen, I had the worst record of all the students at a Jesuit school in Stamford Hill and was finally expelled for stealing.
I thought the only way I was going to get treated with any dignity was to follow in the footsteps of my father: an aggressive, alcoholic gambler. People were frightened of him and gave him a grudging respect, which he gained through violence. I copied his habits, including his constant drinking, because alcohol gave me good feelings and numbed me to all the bad things in my life. But the next day would always come, when everything felt worse, so I would drink again to drown the consequences.
He joined a motorcycle gang and became extremely violent. After marrying, he got a job by lying. He became very successful and earned lots of money.
I lived for power, money, and a good time at all times. But suffering always dragged down my dreams because my pleasure came from sin and addictions, with their lingering imprint of pain, hurt, loneliness, and emptiness.
My life was a dark one when the angel started to visit me. Even when I heard his voice, I still didn’t believe that he existed, so I said to him, “Prove you are real.” And he did. He started to tell me of different things that would happen in my life, which I shared with my wife — and to our amazement, they all came true. The angel was gentle, but I didn’t listen to him; therefore, in his stead, God sent in the big guns.
One night, St. Teresa of Avila appeared to him.
She proceeded to give me a kick up the back side, saying I needed to change my life completely to avoid going to hell, which she then described in frightening detail. That woke me up. Before then, hell was only a made-up myth to trick people into living better, but now, if that place existed, I certainly didn’t want to go there…. Then she revealed what could also be mine: she told me all about heaven. “That is where I want to go!”
“You can reach paradise,” she said to me, “anyone can. If you live your Catholic faith, you are guaranteed heaven.” Then she insisted, “Pray, pray the Rosary!” and asked me to go get one.
I didn’t want to pray. Prayer was boring, so I looked for excuses: “Where can I get rosary beads at this time of night?”
“There is a shop around the corner that is open and sells rosary beads.”
“At 9:30 at night? That’s impossible!”
“You go there!”
“This is totally nuts,” I thought to myself, as I walked outside. Turning the corner, I saw a religious shop. It was open, and they were stocking inventory. St. Teresa directed me downstairs where many rosaries were on display. I couldn’t believe it. She showed me a brown rosary, which I later discovered was the color of the Carmelite order to which she belonged. “Get that one!” she urged.
Back in his hotel room, rosary in hand, he continued to argue with St. Teresa.
“You must pray,” she said, “and you must pray the Rosary because you risk losing your soul! You are going to hell unless you change!” Needless to say, she won the argument.
I didn’t really know the Rosary, so she explained to me how to pray it. She said that I should see it as a window into the life of God on Earth, that I should place myself beside Jesus and walk with Him through His life. By doing so, His grace would reach inside of me and touch me in a powerful way.
“Every prayer of the Rosary,” she told me, “is a step away from evil and a step toward God. See the Rosary as a chain you are hanging around the neck of Satan, which will weigh him down and break his grasp on you.”
From my first Rosary prayer, I felt a peace, a happiness, an excitement within. I couldn’t stop laughing, and I couldn’t stop crying. No drugs or alcohol could have given me what I was feeling at that moment. The more I prayed, the stronger this feeling became, until suddenly, I had finished fifteen decades.
…From the moment I started to pray the Rosary, Satan’s grasp on me weakened. My addictions fell away, and I had many of them — alcohol being the primary one. This is nothing I did, but a grace from God. Anyone who has been addicted to alcohol knows how hard it is to quit, and I stopped immediately. In moments of temptation, when I felt weak and so alone, hurt, rejected, and unloved, I was freed and strengthened by remembering St. Teresa’s words to me: “Every time you feel a desire to do wrong, think of Jesus. Just think of His Name, think of Him suffering on the Cross, or see the Host before you. Keep concentrating on that and you will see your desires fall away.”
One day in 1994, Jesus came to him a vision.
Before me was Jesus on the Cross, telling me he loved me and he wanted to forgive me. It was the greatest day in my life, but also the most difficult because I was shown how all my sins, from childhood to the present, had contributed to his suffering and dying. There were so many of them! It seemed as though I was sinning every second of my life.
I saw how every time I had hurt someone, I was hurting Jesus. Any time I told a lie, I was lying about Jesus as he suffered and died. Every time I gossiped about people, I was below the Cross with those gossiping about Jesus as he hung in agony. Any time I made fun of others, I was making fun of Jesus as he died for me. Even the smallest sin, even the thoughts I had toward others — of dislike, anger, hate, or frustration — seemed so big. And to see my grievous sins was absolutely terrible.
Jesus showed me the state of my soul, which was putrid. He revealed how my sins not only hurt other people but often led them into sin, such as when they tried to imitate me or responded with anger or violence. I felt so ashamed, so unworthy and offensive. I wanted to run away but couldn’t, and Jesus wouldn’t leave me. Worse yet, he kept telling me he loved me and longed to forgive me.
… For five hours, I cried and cried, curled up on the floor, sobbing like a baby, begging Jesus, “Let me die, let me die!” To see his Blood running down his face as he called out to me through his suffering, “I love you, and I want to forgive you,” was the deepest pain I’ve ever felt in my life.
Eventually with his grace, I built up the courage to ask for his forgiveness. Reaching out across a chasm of shame, I said, “Forgive me, dear Jesus.”
“I do forgive you,” he answered. At that moment, I felt a tremendous weight of sin being lifted from me. His love touched my soul in such a wonderful way that I never wanted to lose his presence again. Possessing him, I knew, was the most important thing in life. I felt refreshed, renewed — a different person! I couldn’t stop telling Jesus that I loved him and wanted to love him forever. I knew I could never hurt him again purposefully, and I never wanted to be away from him. I fell in love with Jesus that day, and I totally committed my life to God.
Then Jesus told him to go to Confession.
When I came out of the confessional, Jesus said, “Understand that when you don’t confess all your sins, you hold onto the pain and hurt and suffering that comes with them. If you do not confess all of your sins, it is easy for Satan to lead you into more sin because you are not only left feeling bad about yourself, but you also have that sin residing on your heart, on your very soul. It remains a weakness there, a doorway where evil can enter and lead you further away from God. It is also important that you continue to recognize your mistakes, and once you do, come to Confession and ask for forgiveness. Do not push them aside and say they are not important. Understand that it is important to get rid of every sin.”
Since then, God has sent Alan around the world to lead others to the same repentance and purification. To prove that his story is real, God has revealed himself by healing people in Alan’s audiences. Alan has often wondered, “Why me? There are so many good people who come to church because they love God, so many religious people, yet You are talking to me who has been so bad, who is so bad. I just don’t understand.” The answer:
“It is because God loves you, and he loves you the same as anyone else. The only difference is how much you love God. Also, God appearing to you, someone who was so far away from him, shows that his love is there for everyone, even the worst sinner, not just for a select few.”
The Illumination of Conscience
Alan Ames experienced an illumination of conscience when God revealed to him all the ways he had wounded Jesus throughout his life. Many others have also had intense revelations like he did. It’s what we will all experience at the moment of our death, when (as the saying goes) our entire lives will flash before our eyes. But contrary to popular worldly opinions on this, it’s not a movie depicting all the scenes of our lives. It’s not a fun, amazing memory-jogger. It’s an illumination of conscience.
When we die, the scriptures say that the veil of our understanding is removed. We can see things clearly. We can see things we didn’t understand before.
See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are… Beloved, we are God’s children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure. (1 John 3:1-3 ESV)
The same thing can happen any time throughout our lives:
But whenever anyone turns to the Lord, the veil is taken away. Now the Lord is the Spirit, and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is freedom. And we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lord’s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit. (2 Corinthians 3:16-18 NIV)
The illumination of conscience is the veil being lifted. Look at what Saint Alphonsus de Liguori said about it:
When the soul enters the kingdom of the blessed, and the barrier which hinders its sight is taken away, it will see openly and without a veil the infinite beauty of God; and this will be the joy of the blessed.
Every object that the soul then will see in God himself will overwhelm it with delight; it will see the rectitude of his judgments, the harmony of his regulations for every soul, all ordained to his divine glory, and its own good.
The soul will especially perceive, in respect to itself, the boundless love which God has entertained towards it in becoming man, and sacrificing his life upon the cross through love of it. Then will it know what an excess of goodness is comprehended in the mystery of the cross, in the sight of a God become a servant, and dying condemned upon an infamous tree; and in the mystery of the Eucharist, in the sight of a God beneath the species of bread, and made the food of his creatures.
In particular, the soul will perceive all the graces and favors shown to it, which, until then, had been hidden. It will see all the mercies he has bestowed on it, in waiting for it, and pardoning its ingratitude. It will see the many calls, and lights, and aids that have been granted to it in abundance. It will see that these tribulations, these infirmities, these losses of property or of kindred, which it counted punishments, were not really punishments, but loving arrangements of God for drawing it to the perfect love for him.
Saint Alphonsus described what happens when the veil is lifted for a holy person, i.e., all of us who have been following Jesus as our Lord and Savior, all of us who have been repenting from our sins. Alan Ames is an example of what happens to sinners who are willing to repent.
What about those who are not (yet) willing? Many saints and mystics have spoken of a world-wide, sudden illumination of conscience affecting everyone, all at the same time, from every religion and creed, including atheists and the worst of evil-doers. Everyone will see their entire lives through the eyes of Abba-Father. They will see, like Alan Ames did, how terribly they wounded Jesus with even the smallest of sins.
This book would be too long if I were to sidetrack onto the stories of these saints and mystics and their messages. I’ll cover just a few. However, you can dig deeper into this enlightening subject; there are excellent compilations, such as the book I’m quoting from in this chapter: The Warning: Testimonies and Prophecies of the Illumination of Conscience by Christine Watkins found at queenofpeacemedia.com.
The Prayer of Divine Illumination
You have loved ones who have rejected Jesus. We all do. You know people who have embraced the lies of the Devil without realizing that they have endangered their lives here on earth as well as their immortal souls. They need divine illumination!
In fact, we all have been tricked into believing, to some extent, the lies of the Devil. We sin because we do not understand that God has a different way, a better way. We, too, need an increase of divine illumination.
According to messages given by our Blessed Mother during her various apparitions over the past century and longer, we can be sure that God has a plan to rescue the world from darkness. Many Spirit-filled priests and others who have the charism of prophecy are echoing what saints and mystics have said: God is planning to provide a supernatural illumination. He is going to purge humankind from its very pervasive evils by sending a flood like in the days of Noah, but this time it will be the flood of the Holy Spirit! God is going to make it known to everyone on the earth that Jesus is Lord and he is the only way to Heaven, so that everyone can decide with eyes wide open whether to follow him or not.
The following Prayer of Divine Illumination was inspired during my morning meditations several days before the Feast of Pentecost (2020). It’s provided here to help bring about the Great Illumination in your loved ones and into your own life. It’s an effective weapon against the darkness that has pervaded our world.
You may use rosary beads to help with counting.
The Act of Contrition
O my God, I am heartily sorry for having offended You, and I detest all my sins, because I dread the loss of heaven and the pains of hell. But most of all because they offend You, my God, who are all good and deserving of all my love. I firmly resolve, with the help of Your grace, to confess my sins, to do penance, and to amend my life. Amen.
To Jesus (10 times)
Oh come Lord Jesus with Your Divine Light!
Come shed Your Great Illumination into the darkness of this world.
Come anew with Your Spirit of Truth to save us from the deceits of the evil one.
Once between decades:
Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins, save us from the fires of hell;
lead all souls to Heaven, especially those most in need of Your Mercy.
To the Father (10 times)
Father God, enlighten our minds, that we may be set free.
Enlighten our intellects, that we may understand the Truth more fully.
Enlighten our wills, that we may embrace Your Divine Will.
Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins…
To the Holy Spirit (10 times)
Come Holy Spirit and fill us.
Come Holy Spirit and renew us.
Come Holy Spirit and activate Your Divine Gifts in us, especially the gift of discernment.
Oh my Jesus, forgive us our sins…
O Glorious St. Joseph, spouse of the Immaculate Virgin, obtain for us a pure, humble, and charitable mind, and perfect resignation to the Divine Will.
In the name of the Father, and the Son and the Holy Spirit, amen.
Words from Our Loving Mother
God has been sending the Blessed Mother to us for a long time, most especially in the past 200 years. A little over 100 years ago, she gave some very powerful messages in Fatima, Portugal, and since then, her sightings or apparitions have increased. Her messages have always been basically about: The world needs to repent. We all need to pray more. We all need to repent. And people who are away from Christ need to come back to Christ.
She repeats this message everywhere she appears.
On May 13, 1917, the Blessed Virgin Mary began to appear to three children in Fatima: Lucia dos Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto. These appearances are well known for the three secrets, and many books, articles, and websites cover them. In particular, I recommend to you the Vatican document published by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, entitled The Message of Fatima. It was published at the beginning of the third millennium when Pope Saint John Paul II decided to make public the text of the third part of the “secret of Fatima”. This document includes wonderful prayers by John Paul II, which consecrated the world to the Blessed Mother.
“The power of this consecration lasts for all time and embraces all individuals, peoples and nations. It overcomes every evil that the spirit of darkness is able to awaken, and has in fact awakened in our times, in the heart of man and in his history,” wrote Archbishop Tarcisio Bertone, SDB, Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.
Our Lady of Fatima gave us three tasks. If enough people were to do these, she promised, they would bring peace to the world:
- We must be sorry for what we’ve done wrong; we must put God first in our lives.
- We must pray the Rosary each day for peace.
- We must make sacrifices for sinners so they will know and love God.
Father Stefano Gobbi, founder of the Marian Movement of Priests and a mystic, went on pilgrimage to Fatima in 1972. At the shrine, he prayed for certain priests who had renounced their vocations and were attempting to rebel against the Catholic Church. He heard Our Lady’s voice urge him to gather other priests who would be willing to consecrate themselves to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and remain strongly united to the holy pope and the Church. This was the first of hundreds of inner locutions that Fr. Gobbi would receive over the course of his life.
From 1988 to 1996, Our Lady gave him five messages concerning the illumination of conscience. The first took place on May 22, 1988, which was the Feast of Pentecost. She spoke of Abba-Father’s plan to enlighten even the most rebellious of sinners.
With his divine love, he will open the doors of hearts and illuminate all consciences. Every person will see himself in the burning fire of divine truth. It will be like a judgment in miniature, and then Jesus Christ will bring his glorious reign in the world.
On June 4, 1995, which again was the Feast of Pentecost, she said:
Tongues of fire will come down upon you all, my poor children, so ensnared and seduced by Satan and by all the evil spirits who, during these years, have attained their greatest triumph. And thus, you will be illuminated by this divine light, and you will see your own selves in the mirror of the truth and the holiness of God. It will be like a judgment in miniature, which will open the door of your heart to receive the great gift of divine mercy.
And then the Holy Spirit will work the new miracle of universal transformation in the heart and the life of all: sinners will be converted; the weak will find support; the sick will receive healing; those far away will return to the house of the Father; those separated and divided will attain full unity. In this way, the miracle of the Second Pentecost will take place. It will come with the triumph of my Immaculate Heart in the world. Only then will you see how the tongues of fire of the Spirit of Love will renew the whole world, which will become completely transformed by the greatest manifestation of divine mercy.
Prior to this, the Blessed Mother began appearing in San Sebastián de Garabandal, Spain, on July 2, 1961. She spoke to four children, Conchita González, Jacinta González, Mari Loli Mazón, and Mari Cruz González. In October, she told the children about a Great Miracle that was coming. Conchita later reported:
In order to prepare us for the Great Miracle, a supernatural warning, coming directly from God, will occur. The Warning will appear in the sky and will be visible to the whole world. It will be understood by everyone at the same time, regardless of their state of life or knowledge of God.
For those who stay close to Christ, it’s an illumination of conscience and it will unveil the glory of God in a fullness we’ve never seen before. For evil-doers, it will be a warning. When they see everything they’ve done through the eyes of Abba-Father and they realize how much they’ve wounded Jesus, will they be happy about those wounds? Or will they repent?
Janie Garza is a visionary and locutionist with the visible stigmata (the wounds of Christ) on her body. Born in 1955, she has authored Heaven’s Messages for the Family. In 2006, her bishop gave his full approval to continue speaking and spreading the messages she’s received.
In 1994, Saint Joseph appeared to her and said:
The Truth is the Eternal Father. You cannot live in sin and say you know the truth, for you cannot have two masters. You must choose to live in darkness or to live in the light. For those who believe that they live in the light but continue to break every Commandment given by God, to these souls, I, Saint Joseph, say that these souls will not be able to see the state of their souls and live.
From all of my studies about the illumination of conscience, it seems to me that if your loved ones who’ve been rejecting Christ have shown evidence that they do love and do care and do feel bad for the wounded, then the illumination will alarm them the way Alan Ames was alarmed. Seeing what they did to Jesus will horrify them. (This includes seeing what they did to Jesus every time they hurt you!) They will repent. If it happens at the moment of their death, they will gladly enter into the purification of Purgatory. If it happens in a global miracle, they will spend the rest of their lives on fire for the Lord and God will turn their rebellion into ministry.
St. Joseph told Janie:
Share with them that the Eternal One is calling them to return to him and to accept his love and mercy, to amend their lives and to live the messages of prayer, fasting and conversion. All who repent will receive special graces to enter into the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the Immaculate Heart of Mary. To all who repent, God will shower his mercy on them. No one will be turned away, for God loves all his children.
Write your story of conversion
Spend some time recalling the various times you experienced a significant repentance. Ask the Holy Spirit to refresh your memory. Even ask your Guardian Angel to refresh your memory!
Many of us have had a profound turning point. Others reading this have had only gradual spiritual growth from the day they were born. But all of us have sinned. All of us have discovered a need to seek Abba’s forgiveness.
Did any of these occasions include a mystical encounter with the Lord? If this has happened to you, please share your story in the comments. You can give yourself the name “Anonymous” if you like. Sharing it with others will minister to them and increase their faith in God’s supernatural doings.
Whatever your story is, share it with someone you know who is struggling in their relationship with God. Remember, everything that Abba-Father gives to us is meant to be shared. He gave you a conversion story. Don’t hide it! Glorify God with it.
