How Great Is Our God!?!

The other day my Mom & sister went to the hospital to visit a friend of theirs who's terminally sick w/ cancer. This woman's story is so inspirational to me. Here she is terminally sick, facing an early death & separation from her husband and toddler son and she's decided to donate her body to science so she can help others. She is such a strong woman of faith and you would not believe what happened to her this week, it's so God ordained! So she was given up for adoption when she was a baby and has been searching off and on for her birth Mother. Well guess what!?! She found her this week! I couldn't be happier for her! What joy He brings! I am just so touched by her story!

As my Mom is telling me about all of this, both of us choked up with tears, she reminds me of a You Tube video that she just cant seem to get off her mind since her visit. It's a video about how Great our God is and how he knows each of our stories intimately. The video is one that I've seen before but watching after hearing her story gives it new meaning. God really does meet us in our darkest hours. He knows all of our pain and His promises of a rich life after this painful earthly life and is evident right down to our anatomy. Watch this video, it'll amaze you I promise!

After I watched this I remembered one of Bryston's ultrasound's and how my Doctor had pointed out his heart. He's a christian man who has also suffered the stillbirth of his firstborn son. I didn't know any of that at the time of this ultrasound but looking back, his words really comfort me. He showed me this picture of Bryston's heart,


I wont go into the details of what he said, just what he pointed out, that the human heart looks just like a cross on an ultrasound. Do you see it? If not check out this echo cardiogram of a heart, it's hard to miss.



How anyone can doubt God's sovereignty is beyond me. Especially with all of this. I know how hard life can be and how sometimes it seems as if we've been abandoned but I also know that in those hours I find myself reaching out more to Him. Maybe that's why in life we have trials. If we didn't, we would never find the need to fall to our knees and cry out to him!

Shall we indeed accept the good things from God and not accept adversity? Job 2:10
