Washington DC – August 2, 2019 – Report By: Dr. June Knight
On July 14, 2019, Dr. June sat down and with Steve and Ellen Thweatt in her home. They talk about their life journey, ministry and vision for the country.
Steve and I had never met when he was a week away from saying “I do” to someone else and I was moments from doing the same with someone else.
His fiancée, and everybody else it seems,told me all about Steve and how wonderfully he played the piano and what a great guy he is but it would still be several years before he and I would meet.
After his engagement broke and the wedding cancelled, he dated a violinist for a year named, “Ellen” – but she was not me.
Meanwhile, I was praying earnestly for God to give me the ‘right’ husband. I vowed at this point that I wouldn’t even date but would develop my relationship with Him only and trust that He would bring the love of my life to me. I almost missed it and would have except that I kept praying and even fasting. I had learned to be sensitive to the quiet voice of God and in His timing, Steve and I finally met. What I was told about him was correct! We wed after dating for a year. Soon we will celebrate 39 years of marriage.
I am authoring a Memoir of my life and soon I will write the amazing chapter about how my life with Steve almost did not happen. I see so much pain in America and much of it is because we struggle with trusting God with our life – and too often we do not. I am a true testament about the rewards that come when we ‘fall back’ on Him and let go of stubbornness and ignorance. We never risk with trusting God… we only gain!
Steve and I are proof that God helps and guides lives at every age… we understand now that even in conception – God’s plan is in action! His Sovereignty is throughout all time!
In our years together, we have endured many ‘puzzling’ situations that left us feeling helpless and deserted. But gradually they proved to have the Finger Print of God all over them. When the puzzle was in pieces, scattered throughout our lives, things made little or no sense – this was true both separately, before we met and with us together. Had things gone another way, neither one of us would be where we are today. There are two credits due… one to us for seeking God and heeding His written word and the other goes to God for His Long-suffering and Faithfulness toward us! In our opinion, this section is more about GOD, His guiding, sustaining love and power than about me and Steve.
The best life is when we listen to the Voice of our Heavenly Father – and follow Him – that is what it is really all about!
