Amazing

A while back, I wrote about healing and refreshment.  That was more than a month ago.  I still feel well.  Really well.  Isn't God amazing?


Here's the thing:  isn't God amazing ALL the time?  Isn't the Lord amazing when it rains for days on end or when I lock my keys in the car or when I'm being rolled into surgery... again?  Isn't God amazing when I hold the hand of my grieving mother or when I make peace with a disagreeing Christian sister or when I say 'yes' to that thankless and difficult job at church?

The day is often long.  The hill most times seems insurmountable.  The illness rocks my very foundation.  The job is not always rewarding.  The call is not always an easy one.

But God is always amazing.  He is perfect and pure and holy.  He is faithful and merciful and in control.  He seeks.  He forgives.  He calls.  He leads.  He equips.  He strengthens.  He comforts.  He provides.  He speaks to me in every situation through the Word.

And I bow in humility and amazement.

The amazing grace of the Master, Jesus Christ, 
the extravagant love of God, 
the intimate friendship of the Holy Spirit, 
be with all of you.
2 Corinthians 13:14 - The Message

Yes, He is amazing - even when our circumstances try to drown out that fact. So glad you are feeling well. Hugs.
