Connected By God
Earlier, I got a heart warming message from the daughter of someone I recently preached their funeral. Keep in mind that prior to this funeral I had never met this lady or any of her family. Yet, during my funeral preparation I felt such a connection in my spirit. Much like me this lady lived with lots of chronic pain and did have a very strong faith. I mentioned at the funeral that “I felt such a connection with their mom and wished I could have met her.” Well in one way we did meet and connect it just wasn’t in person. Here is the text her daughter sent me…
“Pastor Craig I was just going through my moms bookmarks to find any bills and she had bookmarked your church!!! I couldn’t tell what all she looked at but it was a pretty prominent bookmark. I thought you would like that you actually did have a connection to her while she was still alive.”
This lady had not even lived in this state the past 4 plus years. Yet, somehow she started listening to my Sunday sermons for only God knows how long. This really touched my heart and reminded me that with God there are no limits!
“Jesus looked at them and said, “With man this is impossible, but with God all things are possible.” (Matthew 19:26)
