Presence of God at the hospital

Truly a miracle.. the presence of God. This happened to a friend today at the hospital and I have to share it. I think he said it was around 20+ years ago that his dad passed away. He said that at the memorial service, his mom provided bibles to the church in memory of His dad. He also said something about the church giving the bibles away.

Well, my friend is in the hospital.. He calls me from the hospital today, “Joe, this is so weird. My roommate has a bible and it’s from my dad’s memorial service.” Amazing.

I want to share something with you on “coincidences”. Watch closely. The websters definition of coincidence:

1 : the act or condition of coinciding : correspondence
2 : the occurrence of events that happen at the same time by accident but seem to have some connection

Hmm, #2..  “..but seem to have some connection”  Let us try to determine where that part of the definition came from. I guess the first logical place to look is in #1 – The act of coinciding. Let us see what coinciding means:

1 a : to occupy the same place in space or time b : to occupy exactly corresponding or equivalent positions on a scale or in a series
2 : to correspond in nature, character, or function
3 : to be in accord or agreement

Hmmmmmm.. Sounds like the presence of God to me. But where did that “..but seem to have some connection” come from?  Maybe it came from the -ence.  Let’s see what that says:

1 : action or process : instance of an action or process <reference>
2 : quality or state

So as we can see, deception. Instead of people saying “Wow, perfection in nature just happened. ” The word has been turned into a thing of chance.

God reveals Pt2: Love

As mentioned in the first posting on this topic (here), there have been 3 experiences in my walk with God whereas this overwhelming sense came over me that I was about to experience Him. These were situations whereas there is an advance heads-up. Kinda like “Pay attention, I’m about to reveal something.” This sensation is a bit difficult to explain. As stated in the other post, the best way I can explain this is as a sense, a feeling.. a forewarning? The thought that goes through my head is “God is here and I’m about to experience something from Him. Be watchful.” It is a very strong feeling, like everything goes still.. It is so strong that I pause at whatever I’m doing, because I know something is up and the next thing I experience will be Him so I start watching. This specific one was seriously God and it is difficult to talk about.. But here you go.  By the way, I could use some help w/ interpreting part of this –

Tell others about Jesus

Bible study and Umbrella Testimony

I’m constantly praying for a bible study that the Lord and I put on every Friday night. I kept praying and asking the Lord to fill the study w/ tons of people.  As always, this afternoon I prayed again that the Lord would fill the bible study up.  Then I thought about how the prayer has not been answered and I was talking to the Lord about it. He showed me that He is sending the perfect # of people and that I do not need to worry about who and who will not show to the bible study. Read more…
