Sometimes God will remind you that He runs things. But your eyes have to be open to it.
I'm no different. He showed Himself to me when I was four years old, but didn't see it until after I began looking for it. God's eye surgery.
I was able to see it then. Only took 53 years.
Very good. I think many people could have stories of God’s protection if they had eyes to see. Life is not like the TV show Touched By An Angel, where the angel introduces herself at the end of each intervention. God just does His work and passes on.
That's a great example of a miracle.
Too many people pay lip service to the idea of miracles. They don't allow themselves see it happening around them, therefore these are just fanciful stories. The cold reality is that they do not believe in miracles and the idea of small daily miracles don't stand a chance. Deep down do they really believe Christ did miracles, or are those merely more stories?
Evidence of miracles is everywhere if you allow yourself to see it.
What a great testament to life. Thanks for sharing such a powerful testimony. There are so many similarities, felt we were sisters from different mothers. Not only in the spiritual evolution, but my mom was also a telephone operator until dial tone took over.
You are a gifted storyteller. Thank you for sharing.
@baldilocks Your gift shines.
People fail to see how God works through people.
Your story played like a movie in my mind. You do good work!
I acknowledged God’s existence and but that was over shadowed by my experience with the Catholic Church.
Due to my job, I was on 8-10 flights a week, I always felt more spiritual while in flight. I was on a morning flight from Denver to Chicago when I became aware that our approach into Chicago was not normal. We landed a little after 9:00 AM on September 11, 2001.
I do not need to tell you how that day changed my life. There but for the grace of God go I 🙏
Every once in a while God stands over me and clears his throat and when I look around I notice that I have my posterior on his throne.
So I apologize and quietly sneak away as if He never noticed, and take note not to do it again.
I am pretty sure that He laughs as I turn my attention to the next task. Just like my daddy used to on his birthday when I would box up some of his tie clasps, fingernail clippers and bandaids (my favorite) and give them to him.
@baldilocks should we accurately quote what God told the Isrealites to do to rival tribes? Grind their bones to DUST? The Old Testament is filled with violence against other than the chosen people. It wasn't until they turned against God and worshiped idols that S#$t got real. Moses told them, but they wouldn't listen.
God's Eye Surgery!
@baldilocks We often get caught up in our day to day 'doings' and sadly, we forget God so easily.
I know the feeling...I get the feeling I'm extra obtuse...
Those who label words as violence do so with the sole purpose of justifying violence against words.
