Thank you, again, everyone for your amazing and wonderful comments on my heavy post this week. I'm touched beyond words. When I checked email the day after I posted it, I sat at my desk at work with tears streaming down my face at the love you all shared with me. I'm so blessed to have each one of you in my life - whether we've met face to face or not. God certainly does work in strange and wonderful ways.
I had to share something related to that post: This afternoon, R and I were having lunch and listening to one of Phil Wickham's CDs. There's a song called "Grace" and here is the verse that jumped out at me today:
I need eyes to be my guide
I need a voice that’s louder than mine
I need hope, I need You
Cause I can’t do this alone
Can you believe that? I've listened to that CD dozens of times since I bought it back in November and I never heard that line before. I LOVE this kind of stuff - seeing and hearing God's message to me in all these subtle and sometimes not-so-subtle ways. It seems like every few days, I have one of those moments when my jaw drops open and my eyes bug out from surprise when I find another message from him. And, I imagine him smiling at me, at my surprise.
Have you had any surprises from God lately?
