And they were all amazed, and they glorified God and were filled with fear, saying, “We have seen strange things today.” – Luke 5:26
How do we describe things we can’t explain? Or something that is out of the ordinary?
I started re-reading Luke, and this one verse has stuck out to me and stayed with me for days. Thinking of all the things God has done for me recently and the things He’s allowed me to see are anything but ordinary. They are “strange”.
My God is mighty, powerful, and indescribable. He makes beauty from ashes and turns impossible situations into possibilities. Just think in Jesus’ day, He suddenly appears, and the sick are being healed, the disabled since birth can get up and walk, the dying are raised from the dead. People were witnessing things they’d never seen or thought of happening before.
Strange things were happening.
He is the same God today, and He was back then, and He continues making a way out of no ways.
Atheists and religion can follow whatever God they want to (which is themselves). I choose to serve a God who requires NOTHING of me except my heart and my life. I prefer to serve a God who continuously shows me “strange” things and shows there’s nothing I could ever do to earn His love except sit at His feet.
Of all the things I’ve been blessed to see and all the lessons God has taught me, this miracle baby is by far my favorite. He is a true gift from God and has a purpose I cannot wait to see. My friend was told she had less than one percent chance of ever having a baby and here He is. What man said was impossible, God said was possible.
I am so thankful my friend calls me “Aunt Aimee” and I get to be part of his life. Last weekend, I was so busy that I didn’t get to write a blog, but I got to visit with this little guy. I wrote a couple of blogs about my friend and have included him in almost every weekly post… ha. I can’t help it.
God is faithful. We know that all things work together for good to those who love God and are The Called according to His purpose (Romans 8:8).
I love the strange things, for what kind of God would He be if He were ordinary and predictable?
We don’t know God’s will or why things happen the way they do. We don’t understand His ways and it’s rarely how we expect them to play out, but we can trust His will is going to happen and it will always be for His glory and our good.
The Dr. said <1%… but, God…
I met ‘the miracle baby’!
I waited… and waited…losing faith… ‘and suddenly’. A car and a job: This is the life that God built!
From A to Z be thankful for the M…
A thankful heart: New job and new me. I changed before my circumstances did, and that is what made all the difference.
“God Blessed the broken road…” I never liked that song until I became a teacher…
