Life-Changing Encounters

Christmas is a time for miracles, and what greater miracle than for a person’s heart and life to be radically changed by Jesus Christ.

Since Christmas at the Library started on December 1, thousands of people have visited the Library for the festivities. But, for many, a fun holiday outing turned into a life-changing encounter. Since December 1, 23 people have made the decision to accept Christ after touring the Library, and 40 have rededicated their lives to Him!

On Thursday, December 2, two neighbors who had been friends for many years, came to the Library together and took the Journey of Faith. When they finished the tour, Teresa, a Library volunteer, had the opportunity to pray with one of the women after she made her profession of faith.

“She knew she did not know Christ as her savior … She said she was baptized but never knew what she learned and received tonight as the Holy Spirit prompted her to give her life to Christ.” Teresa shares. “We prayed and cried together for joy!”

Do you know someone who needs to be encouraged in their faith and receive a Christmas miracle? Come take a walk through the Journey of Faith at the Library … where lives are changed every day, even when it’s not Christmas!

    God Bless you all at the Billy Graham Organization. I am asking if you can share a message that I can share to my grandma who was recently diagnosed with stage 4 stomach cancer. I am looking for something with hope and inspiration for a miracle. She has been a life long follower of the great Rev. Billy Graham as he has been her favorite. Her name is Viola Hart and lives in King George, Va. Thank you all so very much! may God continue to allow the Rev. to share God’s messages to us all.

      Thank you for your comment. We are praying for you and your family. We found some great resources from Rev. Graham we wanted to share with you.

      From “The Journey”: “When suffering comes, learn to trust each day into God’s hands and take it as a gift from Him. In addition, even if you can’t concentrate very well, let your lips be filled with prayer and praise. Yes, pray for healing; God is sovereign, and He is able to intervene. But most of all pray for His will to be done in your life—for His will is perfect. Will you love Him any less if He doesn’t heal you? May your response instead be like Paul’s to his persistent “thorn in the flesh”: “But [God] said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me” (2 Corinthians 12:9).

      Above all, when suffering comes, rejoice in the hope we have of heaven because of Christ. No matter what you are going through, someday it will end and you will be with Christ forever, The Bible says, “Our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all” (2 Corinthians 4:17). Earth’s troubles fade in the light of heaven’s hope.”
