Finally, after a long and unsettled time in my life I have been able to return to Church. It has not been easy these past few months, and I have really missed the friendships I have made there, and the time spent in Worship with them. I knew when I woke up that I had to be there today... I am I glad I listened to my heart and God.
I was running late, and Praise & Worship had already begun. The music hit me full force in the face and reverberated throughout my soul, as if God himself was speaking directly to me through the words of the song they were singing. Nothing could have hit home any harder. It felt as if all of the burdens and worry of the past few months had been lifted away in an instant. By the time I reached the Pew the tears began to flow, and I felt a release that had been long over due.
During the course of the sermon, I was lost in thought, and hate to admit it but I was only half way paying attention. That is until our Pastor said he had a short Video Clip to show us. So I set up and pretended like I knew why we were watching this, when really I had no clue.
There on the screen stood a man with a Bible in his had talking about how God created us, Loves us, and holds us together, when things go wrong. Then he said he could prove it, and proceeded to tell a story, about a Molecular Biologist he had met, and something called Laminin? Okay. I was totally lost at that point. I mean, what pray tell does Laminin, a Cell Adhesion Molecule have to do with Jesus dying on the cross for us, and God loving us?
After the first five seconds of the video, the reason we were watching was no longer important. The message I was receiving was the reason I had to come today. I got it loud and clear. I have never had a sermon, music, play, or movie effect me the way this short 8 minute and 43 second clip has. During that short span of time my life was changed drastically, and my spirit up lifted tremendously. But the best was yet to come.
When I got home I knew beyond a shadow of a doubt, that my being in church today and hearing that message, was not only just for me. I knew who needed to also see the clip. One of my Sisters, and her Oldest Son have had a pretty rough week-end. The first person I called was her. Later I found out just how much that little video had also brought them blessings and relief. Even if I had gotten nothing from it, just being able to help my sister and nephew meant a great deal to me.
All I can say is, if you believe in God, you’ve got to see this clip. I do not have the words to explain it so that the impact stays intact. This is one of those times when something is directly from God, and it will blow you away. The following link will take you to the clip. If you care to view this revelation, given to Louie Giglio, from a Molecular Biologist, and God.
