My mom went in for heart surgery on Tuesday, they were going to put shunts in and clean out the blockage, which was everywhere, it was dangerous. Funny thing happened on the table though, when the Doc got in there all the block places were no where to be found. God had answered prayers and healed my mom's heart.
It amazes me, how very personal, our God is, He guides us to the place to hold things loosely and then so often, gives them back, in that process we see the gifts of life through new eyes.
I am quite sure, that I will never understand the greatness and utter goodness of God until I see Him face to face. When I think of how He works in each of our lives, my kiddo's life, my family's life, other brothers and sisters, and what of the christian that are in Iraq, Iran or Afghanistan right now? How is it that He is the closest person to each of us and holds the world together at the same time?
Cowper's words come back to me from the Hymn God Moves is a Mysterious Way
Judge not the Lord by feeble sense
But trust Him for His grace...
God is His own interpreter
And He will make it plain.
