Simply said... God is cool!

Check this out! I just got a phone call from a wonderful guy named Brian. We shook hands with him and his wife during the "shake hands with your neighbor" portion of the church service we attended on Sunday. During the service God gave him a scripture for us. He wrote it down in the church bulletin not certain what to do with it. At the conclusion of the service, Chelle ran into his wife while in the restroom and she commented to Debbie that she was pregnant and alluded to the fact that we had just received bad news. When Debbie returned to Brian she told him that she had seen Chelle and that she was pregnant, a fact that he had overlooked. Brian then looked for us because he knew the word for us was most certainly from God and he had to share it with us, but we had already left.
Brian contacted the pastor of the church to see if we had filled out a visitors card (which we had) and asked if he could contact us. He was obedient to the Lord and called me and this what he shared.
"Without weakening in his faith, he faced the fact that his body was as good as dead - since he was about a hundred years old - and that Sarah's womb was also dead. Yet he did not waver through unbelief regarding the promise of God, but was strengthened in his faith and gave glory to God," Romans 4:19,20
WOW!!!! Is that not a clear cut sign from God that we are to remain faithful in spite of the "reality" of the situation. There is no medical reason in the world that Abraham and Sarah should have been able to bear children, but they did and his name was Isaac.
We WILL NOT loose faith that we too can have a son against these odds!!!

Oh Christian I can hardly type this through the tears. What a huge blessing!!!! And I am so grateful that the man listened to God and was obedient to call you. I was praying that you would receive some encouraging word from God today, and to get one from a stranger is even better. How incredible!!!! Yay God!!!
