A God Story

the other day, I heard a really amazing God story.  My "little sister" (Big Brothers/Big Sisters)
Alicelynn recently had a grandmother who lost her home due to a house fire.

Alicelynn's mom said that her mother very well could've died on the day of the fire..but, as she was making her way out of the house....she was surrounded by fire on all sides...but, as she was passing through..she saw the fire literally part and move out of her way.

she said that, as she was making her way toward the door, she found herself, in a tunnel of cool air...
If it hadn't been there, she may not have made it to safety. She said the fire made an arc..there was fire above her..and fire on all sides..but there was a perfect path..a tunnel, where there was no fire, nor any heat.

Friends, God is good, and I see His hand in moments like this.
The lady who was trapped in the fire said that she was certain that God was with her, and the He moved the fire out of her way and gave her path of cool, fresh air so that she could escape.

want to hear some more amazing God stories?
Read my blog.
God has done some amazing things in my life. Tonight, for some reason my mind keeps going back to something that happened when I was younger. I was on a road trip with my family. It was night, and the moon was shining bright in the sky. I began to sing the song, "He's Got the Whole World in His Hands." I remember looking up into the clouds. I was awestruck,as I saw a pair of perfectly formed hands..chiseled into the clouds..It was perfect..Perhaps, it was God's way of letting a young girl know that prayer is powerful..and that, even though we can't see Him, He still holds everything.

Tonight, I read another interesting story. I encourage you to read it also..It's facscinating. It's about a little girl who was lost in the woods. Her parents prayed for days for her to be found. Meanwhile, a man whom she had never met, miles away, had a dream. His dream led him straight to her..When they found her, she was being protected by a bear. It was treating her as a cub.
Here is the story:

Also, I want to leave you with a verse. This is the verse that  first showed me the true power of the Word of God. There is an amazing story behind it.

Psalm 91

Whoever dwells in the shelter of the Most High
    will rest in the shadow of the Almighty.[a]
I will say of the Lord, “He is my refuge and my fortress,
    my God, in whom I trust.”
Surely he will save you
    from the fowler’s snare
    and from the deadly pestilence.
He will cover you with his feathers,
    and under his wings you will find refuge;
    his faithfulness will be your shield and rampart.
You will not fear the terror of night,
    nor the arrow that flies by day,
nor the pestilence that stalks in the darkness,
    nor the plague that destroys at midday.
A thousand may fall at your side,
    ten thousand at your right hand,
    but it will not come near you.
You will only observe with your eyes
    and see the punishment of the wicked.
If you say, “The Lord is my refuge,”
    and you make the Most High your dwelling,
10 no harm will overtake you,
    no disaster will come near your tent.
11 For he will command his angels concerning you
    to guard you in all your ways;
12 they will lift you up in their hands,
    so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.
13 You will tread on the lion and the cobra;
    you will trample the great lion and the serpent.
14 “Because he[b] loves me,” says the Lord, “I will rescue him;
    I will protect him, for he acknowledges my name.
15 He will call on me, and I will answer him;
    I will be with him in trouble,
    I will deliver him and honor him.
16 With long life I will satisfy him
    and show him my salvation.
