Lately, we've kind of had a string of not-so-great news. To be honest, I started feeling a little defeated as Todd and I spoke about the results of Cohen's biopsies from his lung bronchoscopy. And then somewhere in our conversation my wonderful husband reminded me of an amazing and frequently overlooked Bible story.
His words fell over me like a blanket of comfort, lifting my spirits and changing my perspective.
Todd said, "Remember the prophet Elijah? This is just more water on our wood, honey. Let them soak it so all the world will see just how remarkable our God is when he lights our fire; leaving no doubt as to who is responsible for our miracle."
Later in the day Cohen started running a fever. Because he has a central line he must be admitted and treated for a possible line infection. And now we must sit in the hospital for three days, waiting to see if his cultures grow bacteria... just more water on our wood.
The prophet Elijah had a BIG job to do and he did it in a BIG way. He devotedly demonstrated the amazing faithfulness of our God, and so will we.
So go ahead and soak our wood
if it will allow God's
blazing fire to be undeniably recognized by all!!
“ , the God of Abraham, Isaac and Israel, let it be known today that you are God in Israel and that I am your servant and have done all these things at your command.
