An Ordinary Saturday???

Yesterday's post spoke of a "sign"... well, I didn't write about that "sign" because I didn't know about this "sign" until Saturday, March 22.

We woke up, had pancakes with the boys, like we often do on saturdays when Aaron is home, and then we started to read our daily bible reading and have some time together (Aaron & I) in the great room... As I started talking about the little girl with Hepatitis B, Aaron & I felt like maybe God is stirring something in us and this COULD be God for us to pursue her.... we decided to just be in a state of listening and waiting all day and to see if God would just show signs and begin to confirm what we felt like He was saying to us...

So, as we cleaned our bedroom, we decided to listen to some teaching tapes by Bill Johnson and in this teaching, he talked about how God sometimes talks to us in ways we are not really fully thinking he would (that is WAY over simplifying the message since Bill Johnson is a very deep, intense bible teacher/pastor). As he said that Aaron stopped the teaching for a minute and said "You know, I remembered something that I saw yesterday.." and he began to tell me that yesterday (the 21st), he was in the lunch room at work and opened the regrigerator and found a BAG marked "Hepatitis B Vaccination" on it... He thought to himeself this was very strange because it's not an everyday occurence to see a bag marked Hepatitis B vaccination in the LUNCH room refrigerator! He said "I think this is God trying to tell us something!"

So, we thanked God and asked Him to direct us step by step and to keep giving us confirmations throught the weekend so that maybe Monday, we would be able to call the Agency and find out a little more about this little girl...

Westside Church was hosting a very special guest speaker on this day... it was a man named Nick Vujicic . He is an amazing man... Click on his name and checkout who he is...

Anyways, he came to our church to teach during all services, so we went on saturday at 4pm.... the church was PACKED! It was so amazing to watch and hear how God has used him in his life without any limbs. God used his message to bring HUNDREDS to people to salvation in Jesus. It was amazing. That meeting left me feeling like "wow, God really can do anything through anyone who is willing to just obey His voice"... No handicaps, no Hepatitis B is going to stop our daughter from becoming fully alive in Christ... If she is ours, God can heal her or even work through her virus. He is limitless and I want to stop putting limits on what He can do.
