Our Amazing God

Once again, I've heard from a dear friend. I felt that small tug to keep them close to my heart and whisper prayers for them yesterday. And hearing from them today ~ without knowing any of their appointments yesterday ~ they went through a minor surgical procedure. Coincidence? Hardly. Rather a confirmation from a very big God that He is aware of each and every small detail of our lives. At least that's the way I see it here in this little office at home.

These things happen far more often than any of us remember to write down in our Daytimers. I think I'll start doing that. Purposefully noting the acts of care I become aware of in which I see God assuring me of his amazing love. That may be my theme for 2009. "Yes, Jesus loves me." He really, really does.

I can't think of a better way to start this weekend, or make it through the rest of November or all of the busy Christmas season or.....

Go on ~ give yourself a little hug from Grace in Sunny ~ just because.

I could use a Ms Sunny hug just about now.
Our son got a DUI on Tuesday and I just committed my CC for his Attorney. Yikees!! And multiple prayers are being lifted up.

Aahhh! Thanks for the hug. I sure needed it.

Oh, and the song playing right now, Potter's Hand is the song God used when He called me into full time ministry~ I think I needed a reminder that HE IS IN CONTROL! AND He LOVES ME.

Hi Grace,
It's me again.
I received my very first bloggy award and I immediately thought of you. Stop by my blog and pick up your award. Just copy the button and post it if you would like. You are definately a Kreativ Blogger.

And when the Lord prompts you to pray in my direction during this season, I thank you in advance for the consideration. It helps me to know that there are occasions when my name is lifted up before the Father by the saints of God. Especially the sunny ones!

I agree... Our God is so BIG, and yet, He orchestrates the details of our lives in beautiful ways.

Thank You Lord for answering prayer!

Nice to 'meet' you sunny Grace!

I have been the recipient of those types of prayers on several occasions, and it has always been just when I (or my family) needed them the most. It is such a blessing to have friends who are tuned in to the Holy Spirit.

What a loving Father we have, that He would care for every intimate detail of our lives and encourage our brothers and sisters to pray for us during those challenging times!

Blessings to you, my friend!

What a great idea to purposely note God's goodness even after the fact... especially after the fact.

And btw, thanks for the hug... I needed that!
