Pondering the greatness of God

I couldn't help but think about yesterday and the awesomeness of God's power. It points to the fact that He can use anyone at anytime to get through to someone else even if we are unaware of what is going on at the time. We can always trust that He is at work. When Susan said that she saw something special in my eyes it almost brought me to my knees, because I knew she had seen Jesus in my eyes. God in his goodness humbles Himself so much to dwell in each of us and graciously allows others a glimpse of this indwelling if we live in His grace. When I get up in the morning one of the things I do is bless myself with Holy Water. I make the sign of the cross over my eyes and ask Him to bless my eyes "that I might see Jesus in everyone and that they might see Jesus in me." I seal my mind, heart, soul, and senses in Him.

That special quality that Susan saw was Jesus. Talk about humbling. Those of you who have read my blog know that I am a prodigal daughter. How many people in my past have I led away from the Lord in my sinfulness and hard heart? I hate thinking about this. That I have caused many to stumble. I have prayed for many years that the Lord in his great Mercy would repair the harm that I have caused. I pray for all that have crossed my path, especially those whose souls I have harmed.

Thank you, Lord, for using me yesterday to bring light to someone's heart. Teach me your ways, O Lord, that I may never cause another child of yours to stumble. I praise and thank you for Your Goodness! Thank you for turning me around and filling me with your grace and love!


  1. Mary,
    I am just getting around to catching up on my blog reading so I just read both of your posts relating to Susan. What a beautiful testimony to how God uses us and trusts us to bring others to Him. I too have done my share of leading away and pray God will repair any damage I have done.
    Thank you for sharing this story. I will join you in that prayer.

  2. Karinann,
    It is beautiful and I am touched by His trust. Maybe you and I have done some damage but God in his goodness is bringing something good out of our brokeness. I get powerful witnesses in the Spirit when I read your blog and your testimony. If you want a good laugh - this is how I pick many of the blogs I follow [but not all], if I feel the rush of the Spirit flowing through my body I know that God wants me to read it or place it in my sidebar so others will see it. I follow tons of blogs because I am going to transfer them to a site called, "Utterly Thine", which is going to be a blogroll [among other things] for the Lord in reparation for the sins committed on the internet. I have the site up, I just have to start putting the links up. I for sure am going to put yours up there because I know you are "Utterly His". I hope you don't mind :)

  3. Mary,
    First of all I am glad that my blog gives you a rush of the Spirit. Not that I should need affirmations, but I trust your Spirit rushes and the Words you receive. I love the idea of the blogroll site as well as its title. I certainly don't mind having my blog there~I consider it a great honor~humbly of course :)
    Thank you also for your kind words on my post today.
    God Bless!
