Magnifying Jesus

How big is your God?

This is a question that has been running through my head for over a week.

I know He is the God who speaks and worlds come into being.
I know He can calm the sea.
Heal the sick
Give the blind sight
Stop time
Move mountains
Turn water to blood
Split seas
Send manna from Heaven
Raise the dead
Die for my sins
Conquer death
Calm my troubled heart.
Breath life

These are all big things that my God can do. I believe because I have read about them, and heard about them, and even experienced His might first hand.

But still how big is my God?

Big enough to know and name every hair on my head. Big enough to handle my complaints and not feel offended, big enough to laugh at the jokes I told (OK, still tell Him) even though He knows the punch lines. (I think He laughs with me anyway!) Big enough to care about every detail of my life. Big enough to put every thing I would ever be into a single cell that holds my DNA. Big enough to wipe every tear. Big enough to to provide just enough of everything I need even before I know I need it.

But most of all....What would be the hardest thing I believe He could do....Are you ready?! NOW THAT IS BIG!

And as my daughter is so fond of saying....And guess what?
He loves you too!

Thanks for praying the conference went great! Much more than I expected...see He is big!
I am leaving this Thursday to do another one is South GA. I am having another round of shots next Monday. I still can't sit for very long yet. God is big enough to help me sit longer too.

I love you all!

I find it amazing that he can listen to me and even care about what I have to say. Especially when there are people out there praying about and for such bigger things!

I find it amazing that I heard him chuckle at me once. I really did. I even find it more amazing, now that you have reminded me that he knew what I was going to say even before I said it. (I mean think about it, my humor can be odd and some people don't even chuckle the first time...but to know what I was going to say and STILL chuckle....Amazing).

I find it amazing that he puts up with me and forgives me over and over and over and over again.

I just find it amazing...
