This is one of my songs I have on repeat this morning during my time with the Lord. I love it!
So, I remembered why I wanted to update my blog frequently. I wanted to make posts daily so that my posts won’t be so long! I know reading stuff online for long periods of time gets boring, but today’s post is GREAT. So, please stick it out.
Thursday night at our CRU weekly meeting one of the campus directors came up to the front to talk about Tyson. He talked about his involvement with CRU, the accident, and how God has been healing him. We all prayed for Tyson and then sang a ton of worship song about God’s healing powers. It was a really, really overwhelming, powerful night. I felt the presence of God so much. I know everyone in that room was opened up to God’s faithfulness and love. It was super cool to see God pull His body together like that.
Friday afternoon I went to Bonnie’s house just to hang out. About an hour after being there, she gets this call from Tyson’s girlfriend Jenna. Jenna says, “Tyson’s mom walked into his room this morning and Tyson said, ‘Hi Mom.'” That’s not unusual because Tyson has started saying people’s names but normally people had to ask him questions for him to speak. Tyson didn’t just stop though with “Hi mom.” He continued talking. He was asking questions about where he was, what was wrong with him, he got all these scars, what happened, and my favorite question was, “Am I missing school?” Thursday night Tyson could only say names. Friday morning he is asking questions! REALLY!? Is this real? Yep. There’s no way I can ever deny the existence of God. This alone is proof that there is a God who hears and heals. Amazing. Here’s a picture!!!! 🙂
I was talking to Bonnie the other day about people expecting God to show Himself or perform miracles before they’ll believe. The truth of the matter is, He does perform miracles everyday. He’s doing them now. We, the human race, tend to give credit for His work to others. We could say that Tyson is just a strong fighter, the doctors are just really good at what they do. So often, our eyes see what’s fleeting, and we give what’s tangible (and un-eternal) the credit. Our eyes are not seeing what is truly there. Proverbs 20:12 says, “The hearing ear and the seeing eye, the Lord has made them both.” Our eyes were created to see Him. We are blind too often. Open your eyes. See Him. See His hand working. (I’m saying this to myself too!) God is too glorious not to notice.
That’s all for now! I have a lot more I could say, but I’ll hold off for your sake! 🙂 I love you whoever you are.
To God be the Glory.
