A couple of weeks ago, I won a dvd from my friend, Beth at an instrument 4 His glory I was so excited to win, but had no idea what this dvd would mean to me. It is entitled How Great is Our God, and if you haven’t seen it, OH MY, YOU NEED TO. Initially, I watched it by myself, I laughed, and I also sat here with tears just falling off my face. Not that I didn’t already know how great He is, but this really opened my eyes to Him in a way they had never been opened before.
Later, I told Dan and the three boys who were home that I wanted them to watch it with me. They were fine with that, maybe a little shocked that I was going to watch it again the same day, but ready to watch it if that’s what I wanted. They too, sat glued to the television. They were amazed, and I was crying again. When it ended, I didn’t think they would ever quit talking about it. They were so fired up. One of the twins asked if we could buy a bunch of these dvd’s and give them to anyone we know or ever meet who isn’t a believer. The other twin sounded like an evangelist. He was so excited and so animated talking about it and the next day said, “After watching that dvd last night, I think I want to be a pastor when I grow up.” I don’t know if that is God’s plan for him, but I do know that this dvd had a huge impact on my family.
I don’t want to give away the message of the dvd because I really want you all to watch it, but I do want to say, I don’t think there is any way we can even fathom HOW GREAT HE IS. It seems so crazy to me that I have been serving Him all these years, I have seen miracles, healings, I seen Him show up in big ways and in small ways, but I definitely have a much larger view of Him.
Now I know that any whining, complaining, or doubt about whether or not I can handle anything this life throws at me, has to go out the window permanently, never to be picked up again. He holds ME in the palm of His great hand because He wants to. He breathed everything into existence and He picked ME to love!!
Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for He chose us in advance, and He makes everything work out according to His plan. Ephesians 1:11
Thank you again, Beth!!!
Counting it all Joy!!
