Thy Kingdom Come, Thy Will Be Done

Beloved, the title of this article is part of a very familiar prayer most commonly known as The Lord’s Prayer or The Disciple’s Prayer. Most probably, each of us has prayed these very words countless times. In fact, it may well be the first prayer we ever learned by heart, maybe even long before the words had any depth of meaning for us. So let’s look once again at what Yeshua told His disciples regarding prayer:

“When you pray, don’t be like the hypocrites, who love to pray standing in the synagogues and on street corners, so that people can see them. Yes! I tell you, they have their reward already! But you, when you pray, go into your room, close the door, and pray to your Father in secret. Your Father, who sees what is done in secret, will reward you. And when you pray, don’t babble on and on like the pagans, who think God will hear them better if they talk a lot. Don’t be like them, because your Father knows what you need before you ask him. You, therefore, pray like this:

‘Our Father in heaven!
May your Name be kept holy.
May your Kingdom come, your will be done
On earth as in heaven.
Give us the food we need today.
Forgive us what we have done wrong,
As we too have forgiven those who have wronged us.
And do not lead us into hard testing,
But keep us safe from the Evil One.
For kingship, power and glory are yours forever.
Amen.’

For if you forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but if you do not forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will not forgive yours.” (Matthew 6:5-14 CJB, Emphasis added)

The underlined words above are timely and significant, especially for those of us who have submitted ourselves and responded to Yeshua’s call to “Follow Me!” So let’s look more carefully into those underlined words. Then once we’ve mined the depth of what they tell us, we will be ready and able to look further into what lies ahead in our faith journey and the ongoing and essential tutoring of the Holy Spirit who fuels our lives, our trust, our faith and our testimony.

So we begin with a little heart housekeeping to do. Let’s take a look at the two smallest words: “as” and “if” because although small, their impact in our hearts and lives is very, very big. When we say, “Forgive us what we have done wrong, AS we too have forgiven those who have wronged us” we are actually asking our God to treat us in IN THE SAME WAY we have treated others.

And when Yeshua says, “For IF you forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you; but IF you do not forgive others their offenses, your heavenly Father will not forgive yours” – it’s pretty clear that we’ve just asked God to impart to us THE SAME LEVEL OF FORGIVENESS that we have given toward others.

If the reality of these words has just pricked your conscience, and if you’ve just realized that you may be guilty of taking our Lord’s Holy Name in vain by praying prayers that you didn’t really mean… please take some time alone before Him to humble yourselves and repent just as the Scripture exhorts us to do —

“Blessed is the man you discipline, O Lord; the man you teach from your law; you grant him relief from days of trouble.” (Psalm 94:12-13 NIV)

“Search me, O God, and know my heart. Examine me and know my anxious thoughts, and see if there be any offensive way within me, and lead me in the way everlasting.” (Psalm 139:23-24 TLV)

“Let us examine and test our ways, and let us return to Adonai.” (Lamentations 3:40 TLV)

“But a man must examine himself, and then let him eat of the bread and drink from the cup. For the one who eats and drinks without recognizing the body, eats and drinks judgment on himself. (1 Corinthians 11:29 TLV)

“Test yourselves, to see whether you are in the faith. Examine yourselves! Or don’t you know yourselves – that Messiah Yeshua is in you?” (2 Corinthians 13:5 TLV)

And when the Holy Spirit has finished showing you all you needed to see and you’ve received the healing and restoration your heart needed, let’s continue the process and focus on the core text here: “May your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven”.

We disciples see this part of the prayer, ‘May your Kingdom come, your will be done’ in seed form every day through various ways. His Kingdom and will appear each time we make a choice to honor Him. For example, a random act of kindness… the choice to give up your seat on a bus so an elderly person can sit… rejecting the urge to speak a hurtful or snarky word to wound someone you don’t particularly like… to change the channel on the television or radio when seductive or ungodly content starts playing… or when you choose to fulfill a promise rather than minimize the obligation when a ‘better offer’ comes along. You get the idea, right?

Each and every time we model fidelity to our King we plant another little seed of the Kingdom in our own souls and lives. But what we don’t often remember is that the smallest of ‘mustard seeds’ grows and multiplies, and our example also sows seeds in the lives of others. It’s the same discipling method Yeshua used with his first century disciples… ‘Watch me, now you.” I recently heard a teaching that used the word picture of a signet ring leaving its mark in softened wax. Once that signet ring was pulled back from the wax, its image remained in the wax. And that’s how the seeds we sow can grow in the lives of others… our encounters with other people can leave a mark that the Holy Spirit can then use to woo them away from the snares of the evil one and into Life as a new member of the Body of Yeshua.

The last part of this text: “May your Kingdom come, your will be done on earth as it is in heaven” carries a much more solemn message — and we often miss just how deadly serious that prayer’s firm and final answer will be — it changes everything!

Because these Last Days are now upon the earth and its inhabitants, this has been the familiar theme in many of the Follow Me Ministries’ recent articles as we’ve been (figuratively) sounding the shofar of warning for whosoever will listen—

Time is short until the soon return of our Reigning King Yeshua,
when His Kingdom does come and His will is done here on earth
AS IT IS IN HEAVEN!

“Blow the shofar in Zion! Sound an alarm on My holy mountain! Let all living in the land tremble – for the day of Adonai is coming – surely it is near! (Joel 2:1 TLV)

So let’s consider what it will really look like when His Kingdom does come, and His will is done here on earth as it is in Heaven… when the prayers prayed through centuries are fulfilled and The Kingdom of God is once again actually established on the earth. [The word “established” is the Hebrew word קומ (pronounced ‘koom’) and it carries the following definitions: to stand, to maintain oneself, to be established, be confirmed, to endure, to be fixed, to be valid, to be proven, to be fulfilled, to persist, to make binding, to carry out, to make stable or firm, to fix immovably or firmly, to set in a place and make it stable there, to settle, to confirm, to appoint or constitute for permanence, to enact, to ordain, to institute.] As we can readily see, this is not something to be taken lightly.

Now that we recognize how very serious these words are, and how weighty the consequences of their fulfillment will really be for believers as well as those still held captive to the lies of Satan and his hordes, let’s prayerfully and purposefully “Selah” – pause and think on this.

The current state of people, nations, and the world itself, is in great upheaval. We are consistently bombarded with massive amounts of information, misinformation, threats, allegations, accusations, innuendo, enough to make our heads spin. Therefore, it is incumbent upon us to be like the sons of Issachar—men who know how to interpret the signs of the times to determine what Israel should do…” (1 Chronicles 12:33 TLV) And now we disciples of the Living God are the ones who must be so completely open and yielded to the voice of the indwelling Holy Spirit that we will know how to interpret the signs of these times to determine what we must do to carry out the orders of our Master as quickly and decisively as we possibly can.

In His great kindness and foresight, our God is now calling His people to rise up and commit ourselves to enter His End Times Boot Camp, designed to prepare us for our commission and deployment into whatever lies ahead here on earth until we “see the Son of Man coming in clouds with great power and glory” (Mark 13:26 NIV) — when that long awaited second coming breaks through into time and space.

Since the day we make that commitment, our civilian days end and we join the ranks of all others who are now also enlisted in our Lord’s End Times Boot Camp training. So once we say “Yes, I’m in!” we enter the process of becoming fully and completely equipped to join the ranks of His Last Days Warriors. Our training regimen takes place right here in the midst of everyday life and we can expect to be ‘called to active duty’ at any time, 24/7.

Some of us have had real world experience in the military and so they know firsthand how grueling boot camp can be. And the reality is that it must be grueling because in boot camp there is much we need to unlearn from our carefree civilian life before we can truly and deeply learn what it really means to be part of a well trained military unit under the leadership of the Captain of the Army of the Lord of Hosts. Once we have grasped and owned our new identity in that army, we will have the privilege of participating in His redemption work on behalf of fallen creation.

And so we see that when we pray for our God’s Kingdom to come and His will to be done here on earth as it is in Heaven, it’s not at all as simplistic as easing our comfort by removing those things that bother us – it’s so much more than that. It is life and death serious! We know this to be true because of what’s been revealed to us about Heaven. For example, in the book of Revelation we see:

4:1 “After these things I looked, and behold, a door was standing open in heaven. And the first voice, which I had heard speaking with me like a trumpet, said, “Come up here, and I will show you what must take place after these things.”

4: 2-7 then describe the Throne of Adonai, the 24 Elders, the 4 living creatures, and are then followed by these verses:

4:8-11The four living creatures, each having six wings, were full of eyes all around and within. They do not rest day or night, chanting, ‘Kadosh, kadosh, kadosh, Adonai Elohei-Tzva’ot, asher haya v’hoveh v’yavo!’ (Hebrew, which in English means:) ‘Holy, holy, holy is the Lord God of Hosts, who was and who is and who is to come!’

And whenever the living creatures give glory and honor and thanks to the One seated on the throne, who lives forever and ever, the twenty-four elders fall down before the One seated on the throne and worship Him who lives forever and ever. And they throw their crowns down before the throne, chanting, ‘Worthy are You, our Lord and God, to receive glory and honor and power, For You created all things, and because of Your will they existed and were created!’”

Chapter 5 continues the description of the ongoing worship in Heaven, speaks of the Scroll with seven seals and the declaration that the Lion of the Tribe of Judah has triumphed and it is He alone who is worthy to open the scroll and its seven seals.

5:8-14: “When He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each holding a harp and golden bowls full of incense—which are the prayers of the kedoshim (saints). And they are singing a new song saying, ‘You are worthy to take the scroll and to open its seals. For You were slain, and by Your blood You redeemed for God those from every tribe and tongue and people and nation. You have made them for our God a kingdom and kohanim (priests), and they shall reign upon the earth.’

Then I looked, and I heard the voice of many angels around the throne and the living creatures and the elders—their number was myriads of myriads and thousands of thousands. They were chanting with a loud voice, ‘Worthy is the Lamb who was slain, to receive power and riches and wisdom and might and honor and glory and blessing!’ And I heard every creature in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and on the sea and everything in them, responding, ‘To the One seated on the throne and to the Lamb be blessing and honor and glory and power forever and ever!’ And the four living creatures kept saying, ‘Amen!’ And the elders fell down and worshiped.”

Can you see now that when we pray “let Your Kingdom come and your will be done here on earth as it is in heaven” there is a huge disconnect between what we currently experience,what we thought it meant, and what is truly normal in Heaven — unhindered, uninterrupted WORSHIP! So clearly when the day comes that this prayer is completely and perfectly fulfilled, life as we know it on planet earth is irrevocably changed by the return of Yeshua Himself, the King of kings and Lord of lords.

Zechariah 14 gives us a little glimpse of what to expect: “Behold, a day of Adonai is coming… Then Adonai will go forth and fight against those nations as He fights in a day of battle. In that day His feet will stand on the Mount of Olives which lies to the east of Jerusalem, and the Mount of Olives will be split in two from east to west, forming a huge valley… Then Adonai my God will come and all the kedoshim with Him… Adonai will then be King over all the earth. In that day Adonai will be Echad (One) and His Name Echad.

Our mandate and our current and ongoing assignment is found in the FMM Marching Orders. [NOTE: For those who are not familiar with the Follow Me Ministries Marching Orders, they have been copied at the end of this article.] Our priority is not only to get ourselves ready for that great and glorious day, but also to faithfully share the Gospel with those who are perishing whenever and wherever we have opportunity, before “soon” becomes “Suddenly!” This is of utmost importance because His return is the final line of demarcation when it becomes too late for anyone to change their mind.

“For as God’s fellow workers we urge you not to receive God’s grace in vain. For He says, ‘In the time of My favor I heard you, and in the day of salvation I helped you.’ I tell you, now is the time of God’s favor, now is the day of salvation.” (2 Corinthians 6:1-2 NIV)

“Then the kingdom of heaven will be like ten virgins who took their lamps and went out to meet the bridegroom. Five of them were foolish, and five were wise. For when the foolish ones took their lamps, they took no oil with them. But the wise ones took oil in jars along with their lamps. Now while the bridegroom was taking a long time, they all got drowsy and started falling asleep. But in the middle of the night there was a shout, ‘Look, the bridegroom! Come out to meet him!’ Then all those virgins got up and trimmed their lamps. Now the foolish ones said to the wise, ‘Give us some of your oil, since our lamps are going out.’ But the wise ones replied, ‘No, there won’t be enough for us and for you. Instead, go to those who sell, and buy some for yourselves.’ But while they were going off to buy, the bridegroom came. And those who were ready went in with him to the wedding feast, and the door was shut. Now later, the other virgins came, saying, ‘Sir, Sir, open up for us!’ But he replied, ‘Amen, I tell you, I do not know you.’ Therefore stay alert, for you know neither the day nor the hour.” (Matthew 25:1-13 TLV)

“Be prepared, prepare yourself, you and all your company gathered around you. Be a guard for them.” (Ezekiel 38:7 TLV) The context for this ‘prepare yourself’ command was in preparation for the time when Gog and its alliances were readying themselves to invade Israel. Today while the forces of darkness escalate their onslaught against the Kingdom and people of our God, we find ourselves in a similar situation and, thus, the sense of urgency we see.

The Lord has given us ample warning so that we will be ready, but we will only be truly ready if we heed His Words and take seriously the signs of the times in which we live.

“For just as the days of Noah were, so will be the coming of the Son of Man. For in those days before the flood, they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day Noah entered the ark. And they did not understand until the flood came and swept them all away. So shall it be at the coming of the Son of Man. Then two men will be in the field, one taken and one left. Two women will be grinding at the mill, one taken and one left. Therefore stay alert; for you do not know what day your Lord is coming. But know this, that if the master of the house had known what time the thief was coming, he would have kept watch and not let his house be broken into. So you also must be ready, for the Son of Man is coming at an hour you do not expect.” (Matthew 24:37-44 TLV, Emphasis added)

“The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some men count slackness; but is longsuffering to us-ward, not willing that any should perish, but that all should come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9 KJV)

Even though God’s patience and longsuffering is absolutely true and unwavering, it is also true that there does indeed come a time when Messiah Yeshua returns to take His rightful Throne over all Creation. That certainty is why we must be alert and prepared for His coming, especially in our obedience to go and to do whatever He says. It may not be convenient and we may not understand why, but we must trust Him just as surely as Ananias did when the Holy Spirit prompted him to go to Saul. Our part is to honor our Lord by accepting His invitation to join Him in the redemptive work He is doing to awaken the lost… and lead them to repentance… and then welcome them into His Kingdom here on earth while there is still time for them to do so.

Now there was a disciple named Ananias in Damascus. The Lord said to him, ‘Ananias.’ He said, ‘Here I am, Lord.’ The Lord said to him, ‘Get up and go to the street named Straight, and ask in the house of Judah for someone from Tarsus named Saul. For look, he is praying; and in a vision he has seen a man named Ananias coming in and laying his hands on him, so that he might regain his sight.’

But Ananias answered, ‘Lord, I have heard from many about this man—how much harm he has done to your kedoshim in Jerusalem. And here he has authority from the ruling kohanim to tie up all who call on Your name.’

But the Lord said to him, ‘Go, for he is a choice instrument to carry My name before nations and kings and Bnei-Yisrael. For I will show him how much he must suffer for My name’s sake.’ So Ananias left and entered into the house. Laying hands on Saul, he said, ‘Brother Saul, the Lord—Yeshua, the One who appeared to you on the road by which you were coming—has sent me, so that you might regain your sight and be filled with the Ruach ha-Kodesh (Holy Spirit).’ Immediately, something like scales fell from Saul’s eyes, and he regained his sight. Then he got up and was immersed; and when he had taken food, he was strengthened. Now for several days, he was with the disciples in Damascus. Immediately he began proclaiming Yeshua in the synagogues, saying, ‘He is Ben-Elohim.’” (Acts 9:10-20 TLV)

Beloved, as current events become more and more out of control , the Father of Lies and his hordes of demons gain more ground in their pursuit of seducing fallen humans to succumb to a state of helplessness and hopelessness until they see no way out. Once they become trapped in that web of deception, they then become pawns who unwittingly bear the putrid fruit of demonic lies and deception. It is of utmost importance that we disciples remember that those blinded people are not our enemies. They are victims of vicious lies and are in need of rescue by the only One who can set them free and free indeed. Therefore, we must stand firm in the absolute Truth and Reality that the Creator and Sustainer of the Universe – our God – is the One to whom we give our unreserved trust and allegiance. And He is the One to whom we can draw our fellow humans toward, just by carrying His Presence into the midst of their pain.

While this battle rages, we must stand firm holding out the irresistible Kingdom of our God and joining Him while He continues working to restore, rebuild, and renew all of Creation even while the enemy hordes yell and oppose and flaunt their sin.

And we must understand that more than one thing can be true at the same time, as is clearly seen in Scripture:

“The thief comes only to steal, slaughter, and destroy. I have come that they might have life, and have it abundantly!” (John 10:10 TLV)

As we stand on the Rock of our Salvation, remembering that our battle is never against flesh and blood, we choose to consistently affirm our commitment NOT to focus on what the enemy is doing, and NOT to focus on what others are doing. Instead, our role as Boot Camp recruits is to first own and face and deal with anything that the Holy Spirit brings to our attention, no matter how small or seemingly insignificant. And we must choose to be teachable and transparent in this process because we are being prepared for deployment to bring the Light and Truth of the Gospel to others. And we cannot share with others what we ourselves have not first received.

This is the way in which we branches learn to abide in Yeshua, our Vine, who provides all we need to grow in our understanding, confidence, authority and fruit bearing. I know it might seem counter intuitive, but our mistakes and failures, pains, doubts, and confusion… all of it works together in our spiritual growth, even if we can’t possibly imagine something good coming out of something unbelievably awful. But that is exactly how ‘the upside down Kingdom’ works.

“Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.” (Romans 12:17)

“Arise, shine, for your light has come! The glory of Adonai has risen upon you. For behold, darkness covers the earth, and deep darkness the peoples. But Adonai will arise upon you, and His glory will appear over you. Nations will come to your light, kings to the brilliance of your rising.” (Isaiah 60:1-3 TLV)

We must always remind ourselves, and one another, that all we see and experience here in time and space is not the final word or end of the story. The everlasting and supernatural Kingdom of God supersedes everything and anything that may be claimed or advanced that doesn’t line up with the Word. And every time we are pulled in the direction of unbelief or diminished trust in Yeshua, we must choose to fix our eyes on Him and refocus on the reigning Lord and King to whom we belong.

And above all else, we must remember who we are and to whom we belong. Ever since the fall in the Garden of Eden, we humans have been susceptible to demonic attack, lies and influence. We are in a war between two kingdoms, two belief systems, and ultimately between the God of all Creation and Satan who claims a place of authority to which he is not qualified to hold. This is a fight to the death; and it requires each of us to make a choice that has eternal consequences.

“But thanks be to God, who in Messiah always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us reveals everywhere the aroma of the knowledge of Himself. For we are the aroma of Messiah to God, among those who are being saved and those who are perishing—to the one an aroma from death to death, to the other an aroma from life to life.” (2 Corinthians 2:14-16 TLV))

Beloved, there’s only one way to be that aroma of life that enables the Life, Love and Sovereignty of Messiah Yeshua to be seen through our lives – we must abide crucified. The bottom line for us Boot Camp recruits is that our only focus must be upon our risen Lord as our only source and sufficiency. That steadfast focus must be the only listing on the ‘menu of options’ that we own, live out, and present to those around us.

“When the Messiah was executed on the stake as a criminal, I was too; so that my proud ego no longer lives. But the Messiah lives in me, and the life I now live in my body I live by the same trusting faithfulness that the Son of God had, who loved me and gave himself up for me.” (Galatians 2:20 CJB)

Our Boot Camp is designed to fulfill God’s heart for His people to know and experience the same oneness that the Father, Son and Holy Spirit embody.

May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you the same attitude of mind toward each other that Christ Jesus had, so that with one mind and one voice you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ. Accept one another, then, just as Christ accepted you, in order to bring praise to God.” (Romans 15:5-7 NIV Emphasis added)

Therefore, remember that formerly you who are Gentiles by birth and called ‘uncircumcised’ by those who call themselves ‘the circumcision’ (which is done in the body by human hands)— remember that at that time you were separate from Christ, excluded from citizenship in Israel and foreigners to the covenants of the promise, without hope and without God in the world. But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far away have been brought near by the blood of Christ.

For he himself is our peace, who has made the two groups one and has destroyed the barrier, the dividing wall of hostility, by setting aside in his flesh the law with its commands and regulations. His purpose was to create in himself one new humanity out of the two, thus making peace, and in one body to reconcile both of them to God through the cross, by which he put to death their hostility. He came and preached peace to you who were far away and peace to those who were near. For through him we both have access to the Father by one Spirit.” (Ephesians 2:11-18 NIV, Emphasis added)

“How good and pleasant it is when God’s people live together in unity! It is like precious oil poured on the head, running down on the beard, running down on Aaron’s beard, down on the collar of his robe. It is as if the dew of Hermon were falling on Mount Zion. For there the Lord bestows his blessing, even life forevermore.” (Psalm 133:1-3 NIV)

“My prayer is not for them alone. I pray also for those who will believe in me through their message, that all of them may be one, Father, just as you are in me and I am in you. May they also be in us so that the world may believe that you have sent me. I have given them the glory that you gave me, that they may be one as we are one—I in them and you in me—so that they may be brought to complete unity. Then the world will know that you sent me and have loved them even as you have loved me.” (John 17:20-23 NIV)

What a delight it is that the Boot Camp to which we have been called doesn’t only involve hard and difficult times as the stripping away of our self-life flesh takes place. It also includes the amazing and wonderful transformation that takes place in the depths of our soul and spirit as the Holy Spirit faithfully and completely does His work to mold and shape us into the image and likeness of Yeshua.

So for those who have heard Yeshua’s call to follow Him, this is the divine exchange you are making – His Life for yours, and your life for His:

And He was saying to them all, ‘If anyone wishes to follow Me [as My disciple], he must deny himself [set aside selfish interests], and take up his cross daily [expressing a willingness to endure whatever may come] and follow Me [believing in Me, conforming to My example in living and, if need be, suffering or perhaps dying because of faith in Me]. For whoever wishes to save his life [in this world] will [eventually] lose it [through death], but whoever loses his life [in this world] for My sake, he is the one who will save it [from the consequences of sin and separation from God]. For what does it profit a man if he gains the whole world [wealth, fame, success], and loses or forfeits himself?’” (Luke 9:23-25 AMP)

My encouragement to you is this… Make this commitment only if you sincerely and truly mean it. I’m not saying you need to be, or feel like you’re, ready to fulfill it because the simple truth is that you can’t – none of us can. That’s why we choose to make this exchange, and to begin installing the change of management in the life that you’ve called yours and which has been firmly in place up until now. You are, in effect, removing yourself from the throne and asking Yeshua to take His rightful place there; you are submitting yourself to His absolute authority, and you are choosing to follow Him. As one who has made that choice, I can tell you that it is the beginning of a new life that revolutionizes everything you’ve believed and experienced thus far. It is stepping into that narrow gate which opens onto that narrow path upon which each disciple will travel from the day we are called to follow until the day we take our last breath here on earth. But it doesn’t end at that last earthly moment, instead it enters into its total and complete fulfillment throughout all eternity.

May this blessed and beautiful promise God has ordained for His people bring us hope and encouragement even while the battle rages on and the time of our victory seems uncertain. Because we are not, and never will be, defeated as long as we stay under our Victorious Lord’s covering, obeying His direction and yielding to His will and ways rather than our own.

“It will come to pass in the last days that the mountain of Adonai’s House will stand firm as head of the mountains and will be exalted above the hills. So all nations will flow to it. Then many peoples will go and say: ‘Come, let us go up to the mountain of Adonai, to the House of the God of Jacob! Then He will teach us His ways, and we will walk in His paths.’ For Torah will go forth from Zion and the word of Adonai from Jerusalem. He will judge between the nations and decide for many peoples. They will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruning knives. Nation will not lift up sword against nation, nor will they learn war any more. (Isaiah 2:2-4 TLV)

I count it such an honor and privilege to be alive during such a significant period of history, and to be one of those entrusted to advance His Story along with so many others in the redeemed family of our God. My prayer for us all is that we fall more and more in love with Yeshua each and every day, and that we gladly accept whatever path He lays out before us for our personal growth and development. May we bring our beloved Bridegroom much glory through our life and testimony, now and in the days to come. He is worthy!

Your sister, Nancy
