the Power of God

Sometimes I forget, the power of God. I forget that He is the glue that keeps us all together. This morning, in church, I had an incredible reminder, as I watched person after person, walk accross the stage, and testify to the power of God in their lives. How God changes lives, how God gives hope. How God sustains.

Yesterday afternoon, I had a heavy heart for a family from our community. They lost their daughter, and their son is fighting for his life. I dont really know them, I met the father in 1989, but the aunt has been my friend for 20 years. So the heaviness overtook me and I prayed and cried for this family, for their loss, and for their sheer exhaustion.
Today, I read that yesterday afternoon, the boy had some struggles and had to have an unexpected surgery and a blood tranfusion.

I shouldnt be surprised, that God brought them to my mind and heart, and yet I am. I shouldnt be surprised by the Holy Spirit, and yet sometimes I am.
God, let me remember how powerful, how intricately You are woven into our lives.
How much You love.
