I remember several years ago stopping by to see Mrs. Freda Lindsay, co-founder of Christ for the Nations. She was 95 years old at the time and we had become good friends through the years. She has always encouraged me and supported me in ministry…she liked it that I was loud enough for people to hear!
She said there were always people coming to see her lately ‘snapping pictures!’ However, she didn’t hesitate when I asked for another picture to be ‘snapped.’
She is a woman I greatly admire and respect because she has survived more than most of us will ever even face. I respect survivors. I trust people with scars.
Some life lessons I learned from Mrs. Lindsay:
-When you don’t feel good, don’t stay in your pajamas. Get up and get dressed; don’t let the devil know how you feel.
-When you are confronted with a battle, enter into warfare immediately. Many battles are lost in the first few minutes because we wait too long to engage and we allow the enemy to gain ground.
-Read what your critics say and then, ‘get over it.‘
-When some diabolical warfare attacks you don’t waste time trying to figure it out, just acknowledge that it is ‘pure devil.‘
-Don’t get caught up in every new thing that comes to the Body of Christ; maintain your foundation.
-To keep yourself from ever falling, read your bible through every year…three chapters a day and five on Sunday.
I told her many times that I want to be just like her when I grow up!
