“Tell her the child is with Me and that she will see him again one day.” -Steve
It’s a sentence found in my story featured in Chicken Soup for the Soul’s Hope and Miracles, released February 10th. In it lies one of the many reasons I LOVE Thee: His sovereignty.
When I heard Steve’s words spoken to me thirty years ago, I knew of Christ, but I didn’t know Him personally as my Lord and Savior. (An eternal difference!)
I wasn’t overly surprised by his assurance that I would one day see the miscarried child because, after all, I was a “good person.” Of course I’d be in heaven! My concern was for the baby.
And then I came to know—really know—Jesus Christ in a tiny duplex on the outskirts of Spartanburg. Now, as I reflect back on Steve’s words spoken to me that day in the hospital, I stand in awe of God’s sovereignty, mercy, and grace.
God knew I would be with him in heaven one day…
but on that day in the hospital,
I was far, far away from him.
I realize the above post will be more fully understood after you’ve read my entire story but for today, I simply praise God for His sovereignty — for knowing all things from beginning to end. And that love is, and always has been, His motivation.
“Our God is in the heavens; He does whatever He pleases.”
Care to join in the praise? How have you seen the sovereignty of God in your life?
