Faith That Conquers

Commit to the Lord whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.  Proverbs 16:3 (NIV)

 

I arrived at the church where he was about to speak only five minutes before he stood at the pulpit. We had never seen or heard about each other before, yet, when I first met Bruno four years ago, the love of God gave us a special connection. My interpreter skills were blessed with a very special anointing that made Bruno’s stomach butterflies completely ease away. That day was the beginning of a mother-son-like relationship that I have come to cherish much, as my three sons all live a good 10-to-12-hour drive away from Lynchburg, VA, where I live.

Since that day at The Ramp Church, much has happened. Bruno’s English skills have flourished, and he has now become a graduate student at Liberty University, has adopted Lynchburg as his current residence, and even has a job with the school’s IT department. And to top all that off, Bruno, who has amazing videoing skills, can always be found manning the camera at his church on Sundays. One who sees Bruno doing all that he does, would never imagine the paths he conquered to get where he is. He grew up in a single-parent home, not really knowing the man he calls his father. Since his mother’s income was very small, Bruno and his older sister had to get by with the basic necessities she could provide for them. With a love for learning and a desire to do better than their mother when they grew up, the siblings applied themselves and vowed to never give up when things got tough.

 

The road that brought Bruno to the U.S. to learn English and pursue an MBA through Liberty University was not an easy one; it has been filled with hurdles and some disappointments along the way. Yet, one can clearly see that the Lord has steadily blessed this young man’s path, as he constantly depends on faith for what is yet to come. What an inspiring life and testimony of God’s grace!

 

“Lord, thank You for helping our faith as each day dawns. Amen.”

 

For His Glory
