In this episode, Rica McRoy shares her personal story of a life rescued by Christ Jesus. In the midst of a multitude of hurts and struggles, some of which had lasted for nearly 28 years, Rica was finally "blessed to be at the end of her rope," because she finally had room in her heart for God the Father, His Son, Jesus, and the precious Holy Spirit. Unbeknownst to her, God quietly pursued her until she found herself sitting in the back pew of the exact church with purple doors she had married her soon-to-be ex-husband in, obviously not by any will of her own. As the words of Abram washed over her from Genesis 15:6*, 24 years of Gospel seeds that had been planted by dear friends, Ruth and Marshall Lamanac, quickly bloomed. Suddenly, in a moment, the Holy Spirit gave Rica SILENCE in her mind for the first time in her life, proving to her that the words of Genesis 15:6 were not only possible, but true. Fast forward almost 30 years and God has poured out his continual second chances on Rica and her family in many beautiful ways. One of the ways she, highlights in this episode, is through her vocation as an optometrist. Her "voca" (or "calling") as she describes remained the same even after she was saved, but her passion and purpose for it changed in the best way. Now, she and her business partner own a "business as ministry," R City Eye Care in Huntsville, Alabama. Every day, they are providing excellent eye care while also doing whatever the Lord leads in the way of helping their patients to "see" the life they have in front of them. I pray this episode blesses you as much as it has blessed me!
