God Moments. We’ve all had them. Those times you really can’t explain, but something happened – when you knew God intervened in your life and made a difference. It was more than coincidence and you knew it. It proves God still loves you and cares what happens to you. He may even fulfill your dreams if you wait long enough….
A Dream of Africa
Miracle #1 -Toys for Kids
Miracle #2 -Spur healed
Upon arriving in Uganda Saturday evening, my team was met by the local pastor.
When he found out I was also a pastor, he wanted me to preach Sunday morning. The worship service began and the aisles and front of the church were soon filled with people dancing and praising God. They began to sing a song in Swahili and acted it out by lowering to the floor and then rising up; some picked up chairs and held them over their heads.
Standing beside the pastor who spoke English, I asked, “What are they singing?”
He replied, “They are praising Jesus because they were down to nothing and dying of AIDS but Jesus gave them life. They are lifting Him up. Then a man with one leg came down the aisle on crutches. “This man lost his leg in an accident a couple of weeks ago,” the pastor said. He began to do the same thing – lower himself to the floor and then rise back up.
I came to Africa with a spur on my heel. Every step was painful. But as I stood there that morning I thought, if this man can dance and praise God with one leg, I can at least stomp my feet for Jesus. As I did the pain in my heel went away never to return.
Then David met Joshua and something even more amazing happened….
