I’m sure I’ve probably mentioned this before, but I can’t help but bring it up again because it just amazes me every time I think about it. What I’m referring to is the amazing power of God and how He works through us, His people. I don’t fully understand how it is that He wants to work through us, but boy does He.
I was reminded of this today while at the funeral home and got to meet a few people face-to-face who, as of two weeks ago, wouldn’t know me from a hole in the wall. And yet, today, they were so concerned for me that they came to bless me and my family with their sympathies.
Sure, maybe you can try to convince me that it’s just human nature to care for others. But this is different, and if you’ve felt the love of Christ as expressed from one person to another through the Holy Spirit, you know exactly what I’m talking about. Words can’t describe it and our minds can’t understand it. As I think on these things, it’s not so much the love of other people that overwhelms my heart, but rather the love of God and realization of how much He cares for someone like me, who is really just a speck on this rock of a planet.
I have to say it again: thank you all for how much you have loved me and my family and cared for us. God’s love knows no bounds. Awesome!
