Making Himself Known

Last night, the Bible study group I've been leading ended for the semester. We studied "Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World." It is a wonderful study. I highly recommend it.

But last night, we never left question #1! It was a powerful evening.

We talked about testimonies and my friend "J" shared a story involving the death of a family member. You see, God spoke to her through that difficult time and made Himself known in amazing ways. From carrying a card with Proverbs 3:5-6 in her wallet, to seeing it published the day her family member died, to a purse, and a bracelet with that same was a crazy story of how God was telling her that He was with her.

Here's the kicker...another member of our class, "B", brought a little gift for everyone last night. You know, those cards you carry in your wallet with your name and a verse? Yep, you guessed it, "J's" card had Proverbs 3:5-6 on it!

Everyone was either crying or had the hair on their arms standing on end last night!

Isn't it cool when God shows up in amazing ways?

"J", this is for you!

"Trust in the LORD with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight." Proverbs 3:5-6
