In our very small community, everyone knows everyone's business. Does that sound like a bad thing? Sometimes...it can be.
BUT when there is a physical, mental or emotional need, it is a blessing beyond measure. This week, a dear friend (personal and church) had problems after knee surgery. Within a week, this friend, younger than me, was scheduled for a foot amputation or more.
It was just unacceptable to comprehend and a community began to pray. All faiths, all beliefs...joined together to pray for a miracle.
Hold on to your seats! She was taken into surgery for the amputation...and the Dr. came back out shortly. Good news? Bad news? You know don't you? He found healthy skin where he thought to be all dead. His words were "Amazing".
Amazing? Miracles are always amazing!
She has a very long road ahead of healing and even some rehab...but she walked on that leg yesterday. The leg she wasn't supposed to have.
God is good. All the time.
Genesis 9:12-13 NIV
12 And God said, “This is the sign of the covenant I am making between me and you and every living creature with you, a covenant for all generations to come: 13 I have set my rainbow in the clouds, and it will be the sign of the covenant between me and the earth.
