My God

Do you know my God?

My God makes the lame to walk, the deaf to hear, the mute to speak, the blind to see and the dead to rise.

My God casts out demons.

My God brings restoration to the broken.

My God replaces bondage with freedom.

My God heals.

My God moves mountains.

My God is able.

Today I am asking my God to move two mountains:

My dear friend Jeri is in the hospital and on a feeding tube. The doctors have put her through countless tests and they are all negative. Modern medicine cannot figure out how to diagnosis her....and therefore how to help her. But my God knew her before she was formed in her mother's womb. My God knows and My God is able.

I am also, of course, petitioning God for Ryan, his career, and for our marriage. I am asking God to reveal, restore, renew, rekindle, and rework what needs to be reworked in our hearts and lives. I am praying today that God would leave no stone unturned. That is a scary prayer to pray. I am asking God to move mountains and provide for our family. I am asking God to end this season of waiting. And my God is able.

I've been formulating a post for awhile about healing and will hopefully post that next week. Until then, I pray my God is glorified...

So the crowd marveled as they saw
the mute speaking,
the crippled restored,
the lame walking,
and the blind seeing;
and they glorified the God of Israel.
- Matthew 15:31
