Why Am I Still Amazed?

I cannot tell you the number of times that I am amazed by God.  I should be used to it by now and just be amazed when I'm not amazed.  Cause really, that's how often I am amazed.  I think God has really outdone Himself, I turn the corner and there God goes again showing off His love.

This weekend, I had a couple of really amazing things happen.  I was planning on meeting with a couple of ladies this past Friday, and when I woke up there was a major winter advisory already posted for that evening.  Well, I thought about calling around and seeing if we all wanted to cancel.  But instead held off to see what would happen.  Turns out it was dry as a bone well into the night.  And I know because I ended up driving home around 11 that night.  We ended up talking after dinner and pretty much closing down the restaurant.  They were moping when we left and still no snow.  God is very good. 

After I got home and settled in to bed, there was a phone call.  Yes in the middle of the night.  My brother and sister in law were headed to the hospital.  Her water broke, a month before her due date.  I was able to talk to my mom when I woke up and it was clear that my nephew was joining us that day.  He ended up being born early that afternoon at the amazing weight of 6 pounds 7 ounces.  He's beautiful!  I can't wait to get my hands on him and give him tons of kisses.

On Sunday, I wanted to see a baptism that was happening during the second service, but had to keep an eye on Hannah.  I was so blessed to be able to check on the service and happen to get a bird's eye view of the entire thing.  It was beautiful and I am definitely looking forward to seeing little Lydia grow up and do mighty things for God.

God is doing many beautiful and wonderful things, all the time and everywhere.  As I read recently, the question where is God, but where is God not?  He's all around, working, loving and helping us to see His mighty hand at work.

  1. Thank you Tina for breakin it all down and bringing me back to where I should have been in the the first place and showing me again that its not about me but about God and the wonderous things that he does for us and the people he puts in our paths to show that he loves us unconditionally and that where he is there is Peace.
