Deuteronomy 10:21 He is the one you praise; He is your God, who performed for you those great and awesome wonders you saw with your own eyes.
My blog entries have gotten fewer because I have let my boat get overloaded with other stuff. Did you watch the movie, Finding Nemo? Do you remember the seagulls whose one line was “mine”? The fish landed in front of a flock of seagulls, and all of the birds started grabbing at the fish and started chanting “mine”. That’s how I feel sometimes. Everybody wants something from me…..I’m so thankful for my circle of friends who see when I’m drowning and swim out to help me swim back to shore. They keep me balanced. They show me mercy and grace and love me when I’m just a mess.
A few entries back, I shared with you the story of my brother-in-law; about the raging fevers and the prayers that would calm the storms during his battle with leukemia. On August 26th, 2016, this man was given maybe 10 days to live. This morning, they received the news that there is no detectable trace of the mutation for leukemia in his bone marrow and he has a “most favorable prognosis”. I cannot wait to see what God has in store for my brother-in-law and my sister.
Hey God, You showed out in a big way with this miracle You gave to our family. My little problems sure seem silly compared to the storms that You brought my brother-in-law through. You had Your plan in place this whole time. You wrapped him in Your arms and said, “Mine”. Help me to remember that I am Yours. Sometimes You give us storms. You also give us friends to help us through. But, most importantly, you keep us in your arms, and whisper, “Mine”. Thank You for putting things into perspective for me this morning. Thank You for your continued mercy….and miracles.
