Three days ago my husband called and asked me, "How big is your God?" My answer then and now is, "I serve a BIG glorious and only God." Juan and I are facing some deep waters ahead in our lives. The company Juan works for has been downsizing over the past few months. Juan will be out of a job in the next few weeks, barring any miracles. We still have 4 kids and 3 more on the way.
How big is my God? When times are going OK, it's an easy answer; but what about when I am faced with the real trials of life? I am standing, trusting, and believing that my God can handle anything. He is not a god standing off somewhere unconcerned, nor is He surprised by any of it.
Sometimes, we can not see God and not see what He is doing. Does this mean he's not there? On my way to work every morning, I come up a hill and at the top I see out over the vast Atlantic Ocean. In the winter mornings it is too dark to see this. Does that make the ocean not there? No, I just have to wait until the Spring and Summer. God is ALWAYS there, I just have to hold on.
