I need to share something here. Last week I saw a miracle take place. My child, who has suffered from serious health issues for 7 1/2 years experienced total healing. It’s a complicated story and not mine to share, but what we know is that her body has been transformed by the renewing of her mind. Just like the bible promises in Romans 12 verse 2.
I have now seen two of my children experience healing that has been inexplicable in human terms. I feel as if God is proving beyond my doubts that He/ She is real, has power and can do more than I can ever ask or imagine. God is irrefutable. My cynicism or temptation to believe, but only in a logical, feet-on-the-ground kind of way, has been taken away from me. I don’t have that choice anymore.
At the same time as this is happening, I am being moved into a new place in my journey towards forgiveness. Or maybe it’s a journey of forgiveness. I’ve been trying to forgive for a long time now, and I think I have forgiven, but there’s more to come. In the past two weeks people who don’t know about where I’m at in that particular journey have told me things which have changed my perspective. I’ve been placed in other people’s shoes by the power of shared stories and I’ve had to re-examine my own stories. The stories I know about myself and the stories I believe about other people. I’m sure God is in the stories.
Maybe it’s because of the proof that God keeps giving me in other parts of my life that He is active and real that I am learning to place more trust in Him in other parts. I always thought that healing was harder to make happen then forgiveness but I think it’s probably the other way around.
and then yesterday someone met my husband and myself at a wedding and asked us if we’d ever thought about planting a church. I don’t know if God is in that story but I’m certainly more willing to hold open the possibility. I’m discovering that God isn’t hemmed in by our constructs and my imagination needs to grow.
