Memory Lane

We may not be able to go out and travel, but we can sure still take a trip down memory lane, and that’s exactly what we did on our newest episode of Life in Japan. Ruth prepared her special pizza and I got home videos together from when the twins were born ā€” from the time when the Reutter family started to grow.

Our story hasn’t always been a happy story. In fact, we went through a very difficult phase when, before Rebecca and Anna, we lost our first child during childbirth. She would have been 12 years old now. But it was in that incredibly difficult time that our faith in God grew and we became strong in His Truth. God did not take our daughter away from us. Only the enemy of our souls comes to steal, kill and destroy, but God comes so that we can have life and have it to the full. When we became strong in God and in His Word, His promises to us became very sweet as we experienced our dream come true: having a family of 4 kids.

Whatever difficulty you face today, know this: God is good all the time and His Word (the Bible) has the answer, the truth and the victory you need to see, believe and declare over your life. Keep doing that until you get your breakthrough. For us, it was a family of 4 kids. For you, it may be different, but God has a wonderful plan for each and every one of us, if we would listen to His word and put it into action.
