The story of a 20-year old girl: the UNSTOPPABLE God

A few days ago our team went to the Simon Bolivar Park in Santa Marta, expectant to see God move through our dramas and Fred's testimony.
Near to the end of the Broken drama a young girl walked past us and turned back to see what is going on. As she sat down our eyes met for a few seconds and God being so excited with her being there, as if saying "Yes, yes, she's here!!!" Man, God was going to do something big...
After our program I immediately felt compelled to go to her and not long afterwards she started sharing her story with Kasia, Charne and me:
Her parents separated when she was very young and they never had time to "waste" on her. She used to be in a serious relationship and after finding out that she's pregnant, her boyfriend payed for the abortion. At the last moment she decided she wants to have her child, not going through with the abortion. He didn't know that she was still pregnant till some time later when his friends saw her at a local clinic, going for her check~ups. He was upset, but she confessed the truth, and that same day she got run over by a car and she lost her baby! 
Her parents didn't believe her, and rejected her completely. They told her that she was a mistake, useless and without any purpose!  She started doing drugs...it didn't ease her pain. She tried to kill herself...it didn't work. So her tried over and over again. Only two weeks ago she found that her boyfriend cheated on her, after dating for over two years, leaving her with a broken heart, no security and no support: "What's wrong with me?". Her parents changed their numbers so that she has no way of contacting them. "Why did they allow me to be born if they don't want me now?" 
And she's only 20 years old...
She walked passed the park, not really knowing why she stopped here, but when she sat down and our eyes met for that second, she experienced a peace like never before...
 
As this girl cried and cried, I could literally see how walls were crumbling, falling to the ground! She cried over and over again "It's just too much, I cannot go on anymore. It's just too much!!"  She tried everything up to the point of giving up completely, nothing worked, helped, but on the 7th of May 2013 she decided to give Jesus a chance!!! As she cried out of her innermost being to her Savior, the sky  lighted up with lightning bolts and thunder roared around us! I've never experienced anything like this before... awestruck!  Santa Marta haven't had rain or thunder like this in six months...
We could tell her the truth about herself and as the thunder continued, this 20 year old girl could say: "I am not rejected, because Jesus accepts me. I am not unworthy, because God sees me as worthy enough to give His life for me. I am not unloved, because God loves me! I was born with a purpose! I am alive for a purpose!" 
I am silenced before my King... the unstoppable God that saves people from out of the ashes!
The enemy couldn't stop Jesus from being born,
he couldn't keep Jesus from living a perfect, blameless life,
he couldn't stop Jesus from dying on the cross but most of all,
he couldn't keep Jesus from raising out of the grave!!!
 
And a few days ago I saw once again how God cannot be stopped when He longs to save His people!!

I heard Him say, "Oh darling, let us be adventurers." And from behind the walls of ordinariness my heart cried out in a surrendered cheer "Yes Lord. here I come!"
