Miracles. I have witnessed them too many times in my life not to believe they happen. Not only that, the Bible is full of examples.
Jeremy is a miracle. He is no longer in liver failure. His kidneys are functioning properly. He has been allowed to eat and drink (for the first time in days). Cardiologists are seeing him now as they believe the source of all these complications is his heart.
Like the Israelites, I soon forget the mighty works God has done. I go my own way. I grumble. I want to turn back.
Why do I forget that with God all things are possible? My guess is that I don’t think about or talk about God’s mighty works enough. What does that say about the condition of MY heart?
I used to get frustrated when people would not take the time to hear about God’s mighty works in my life. (Still do.) Now, I have three little boys who WILL hear about God’s mighty works. Works He has performed for them, for me, for all of us.
I know Jeremy will never stop talking about what God has done.
Tomorrow is Penecost Sunday. Notice when the Holy Spirit descended, the first thing the Jews in Jerusalem did was speak of God’s mighty works.
Acts 2:5-11 ESV
Now there were dwelling in Jerusalem Jews, devout men from every nation under heaven. And at this sound the multitude came together, and they were bewildered, because each one was hearing them speak in his own language. And they were amazed and astonished, saying, “Are not all these who are speaking Galileans? And how is it that we hear, each of us in his own native language? Parthians and Medes and Elamites and residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, Pontus and Asia, Phrygia and Pamphylia, Egypt and the parts of Libya belonging to Cyrene, and visitors from Rome, both Jews and proselytes, Cretans and Arabians—we hear them telling in our own tongues the mighty works of God.”
Here is a picture of our nephew Josh home from Kuwait. I am so grateful for his service to our country.
