Converting (Dec 31, 2011)
Dear Fellow Believers,
To introduce myself, I am a believer and with the support of two wonderful families am happily married to a Hindu for 7 months now. We have a wonderful understanding between us, for which I am extremely thankful to the Lord Jesus Christ. Every night, I read the Bible and Daily bread and my husband listens to me and prays along with me. He takes me to the church while I accompany him to the temple where I call out to the Lord Jesus Christ.
My marriage is a challenge to me because there are many compromises to be made like in all marriages. But in my case I pray to the Lord that I am shown the right way and am given the wisdom to make the right choices and to always cling to the Lord my Father no matter what trials and tribulations I am faced with. We are currently staying with his parents and they have suggested (although in no way demanded) converting to their religion (but continue in my faith by going to church, pray and read the Bible) in order to avoid confusions for the children and other future aspects. Nevertheless, my husband has not once insisted that I convert. He has approved the idea that I can read the Bible and tell Bible stories to the children and take them to church.
Although, I was the one who chose to get married this way and I had prayed a lot about this marriage. Despite the fact that there is no compulsion to convert, the thought scares me. I do not want to leave my Lord; maybe converting might be the first step to drift away from Him.
My friends, please pray that I will not have to convert and that the Lord will give me the wisdom and strength to withstand these small pressures which can lead to bigger compulsions. More importantly please pray that the Lord will make me the channel to make His presence known in my family and give me the wisdom to teach my coming generations the Gospel of the Lord. I want Him to be with my family and children (even before they are born) and help them to know the Lord and accept Him as their personal Savior.
As I write this I am reminded of the song…. “God will make a way, where there seems to be no way. He works in ways we cannot see.. He will make a way for me.. He will be my guide, hold me closely to his side, with love and strength for each new day, He will make a way for me, He will make a way….”
Praise be to the Lord!!
Thank you everyone for your prayers……
