Since I started attending Church, or even before God has been working in my life, what I call mysteriously. First he got me back to my hometown. I found a job and my family and I moved to Arkansas. Then God found me a closer job, three miles from my house.
Next, through God, my wife was invited to attend Church, then I was appointed to the Pastoral Committee, which I had a desire to be on, but didn’t tell anyone.
Last year, my wife and I were going through the gauntlet of registering the kids, a six-year old and a four-year old and we were going from one table to the other in the cafeteria registering both kids and the four-year old, Charlotte hopped right in one of the teacher’s lap, like she knew her for years. The teacher assisting with registration didn’t mind, and had taken to Charlotte. It was a cute encounter and Charlotte stayed in her lap for the time while we were registering Julie. The teacher and my wife ended up exchanging numbers and became Facebook friends, you know, it’s not official unless it’s on Facebook and now “the Teacher” and her Son and children have started attending Church with us and it’s such a beautiful thing.
Of course we asked if it’s ok that Charlotte stay with her for a few minutes while we finish up with registration.
That fateful day in the cafeteria, registering the kids for school turned out to be beautiful relationship with a stranger that Charlotte made friends with.
God plants people in our lives, just like the sweet people that invited my wife to attend Church. And these unexplainable things have been happening since we arrived here, especially at Church. That is God working in our lives, we just need to let God do his work and not get in the way of it – God Bless!
Have you ever stopped to get gas, stopped to get a coffee, or had to run back inside your house because you forgot something and barely missed being in an accident? If you hadn’t stopped to get gas, to get coffee, or hadn’t needed to run back into the house because you forgot something you would have been in that wreck that you are now delayed in traffic because. Did you ever think that is God keeping you from being in that accident?
Did you ever have a gut feeling telling you to change your flight and then the flight was delayed or worse crashed? That was God saving your life, perhaps, God needs you to do more work, and God has more plans for you.
I believe while we are here on earth, we are to spread the good news and tell people about Jesus and plant the seed and let God come in behind us and convict their heart. It’s sad when I look out in the world today and see the nonsense taking place. I see hatred. When we accept Jesus into our hearts, we are renewed, a change takes place in our hearts, and hate is replaced with love, kind of like the Grinch. Wow, I can’t believe I just referenced the Grinch, but it makes sense. The Grinch’s heart grew and the Grinch is a Christmas movie (Christ), how fitting.

Above are just a few examples of the way God works in our lives. I’m sure there are many more that can be found.
Finally, I heard a story on K-love his morning about a family that found a new Church because of COVID-19. They found a Church that is closer to their house that is having outdoor services. They bring tents and set up outside. The caller stated the new Church has a new Pastor and seems happy to have found this Church, another example of God working mysteriously and providing for our needs.
Be careful, be safe and listen to that voice inside of you, it’s the Holy Spirit keeping you safe – God Bless!
