Praising HIM Today!!!

This morning, on my way to teach a Senior Bible Class at a Christian high school here in town (my pastor has offered to teach the class, but was out of town. . .so, I was in charge!), I read this blog by Charity Alonso and her hubby. It is an amazing story of how amazing our God is!!! If you don't believe in God, PLEASE go read this blog. It's an amazing story of God rescuing some precious children. . .I can't say any more, b/c I don't want to ruin the ending for you!

I ended up reading the blog to my whole class when I got there. We proceeded to have a long conversation about how big God is, yet at the same time incredibly intimate! 2 verses came to my mind. First, 2 Chronicles 16:9: "For the eyes of the LORD run to and fro throughout the whole earth, to show himself strong in the behalf of those whose hearts are fully committed to Him." Charity and Igor, He found you faithful! He found your hearts committed to Him! AND, he showed Himself STRONG!!!! Praise you Jesus! The second verse is Matthew 5:16, "Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father who is in heaven."

The kids and I spent time talking about this. There were many times that I read Charity's blog and could see how hard life was. . and these were just the things she BLOGGED about! So many times, they could have quit. But you know what? They didn't and b/c of their faithfulness and obedience, they were able to have a bright shining light that absolutely points people straight to Jesus!

This story is one in which you finish absolutely praising the LORD! You can't help it! Your heart just soars in praise for the mighty God who created the universe and yet cared for and had plans for helpless children in a 3rd world country that included a family here in the states! God, you are GREAT!!! I am in awe of you!
