"Faye Nunnelee Byrd"

Have I finished my course as a missionary? Maybe, as far as overseas trips, but I believe that all Christians can be missionaries in their homes, work places, and communities.

If you are alive and breathing God has a purpose for you; one that is unique, just for you to fulfill.

"To everything there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven." (Eccl 3:1)


Hope Restored by Faye Nunnele Byrd

Faye describes the time following her traumatic brain injury, as "walking through Shadowland, a place of ashes." Only a word from God could restore her hope.

  • "A STONE FOUND I"

    Say I to the Spirit, into my garden I go.
    To sat in the warmth of the late afternoon sun!
    So to my garden go I
    Picking up the lawn chair, sitting it in a spot

    Too much shade in my garden
    The late afternoon sun making shadows in the garden.
    In the only sunshine, I placed  the chair
    There the late sunlight filtering through the trees.

    Did the Spirit lead me to this isolated, barren,
    Without grass corner of  my garden
    For there I found a treasure, lying on the ground
    A treasure untold, so cold

    I found a stone
    The top was faded
    The other side pink
    As I removed it from it’s resting place
    Covered all with dirt

    Into the house carried I this treasure
    Found I in my garden that day
    Loosely with my fingers
    To prevent the dirt from my hands.

    Into the bathroom
    Under the cool clean water
    Held I this treasure
    And  much to my surprise
    As the dirt washed swiftly down the drain
    with the rubbing of my fingers
    on the clinging soil.
    A beauty unfolded

    To the amazement of my eyes
    There beneath the dirt washed clean by the water and scrubbing
    A beautiful clear pink stone, a treasure
    That never would I have found
    Had I not taken time, to retrieve
    The faded stone from my garden that day.

    And bringing it home
    Washing it with water, scrubbing with friction
    Making it clean.

    And we are like this stone
    Just another part of this world
    This world of cares, troubles and woes

    But, Jesus takes us washing us with the washing of the Word
    Rubbing us with trails and tribulations
    Preparing us to be jewels in a crown.

    In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world. (John,16:33)

    Cleansing her by the washing with water through the word. (Eph 5:25)



    Note:
    A short time later I went and looked at the stone, and it was not as pink as It was right after the washing.
    So Lord my prayer is that you will wash me  constantly  with  your Word, filling me with your Holy Spirit so I will be a fresh and clean vessel Fit to be placed in my master’s House,  a vessel of honor.

    Jesus  found me one day in the garden of the world, dirty with sin, and in need of washing. He washed me clean with His own blood shed on Calvary;  for my sins and yours, and the sins of the whole World.

    As I lay down to sleep that night it brought to my memory of  a place of Hidden treasure on the farm where I grew up. I was my secret place in the Pasture under a tree close to the fence I had made a map, marking it off  With steps, a hole that I made and placed stones and rocks of different Sizes and shapes. My stone treasure.

    Jesus Is Lord!
