So, did I see it or did I not see it? Was it my imagination or was it really God talking to me...specifically me? I've read about people seeing Jesus' face in wood, nature, and even peanut butter sandwiches. So, maybe if I put my thoughts to words, I can make sense of it all.
For the last week, I have wrestled with God, cried out to Him, pleaded with Him, and just tried to make sense out of what is happening in our lives right now. The Bible says that God is in control, so I have tumbled this truth around in my head searching for peace. I wake in the night with questions pounding into my brain, twirling around until I can only chase them away by saying the name of Jesus quietly and prayerfully over and over until I can go back to sleep.
So, yesterday as I was driving to the Dollar Store, I started praying again. "Are you in control, God? Help me to know that you are in control, Lord." For some reason, I looked up to the sky at that very same time. These hot, sultry days of summer haven't lent themselves to very many clouds in the sky, but right above me was a large, puffy cloud that looked just like a "Y". I drove under some trees and looked up when the sky came back into view. Sure enough, the "Y" was still there and right beside it, the clouds looked just like a cursive "e" and then a "s".
Did I really see "Yes" in the sky? Was it my imagination; my brain trying to make sense out of everything? As I continued to drive, a peace just flooded over me. "Yes," God is in control. "Yes," He has a perfect plan that sometimes we can't see and-------"Yes," He is there for us when we just don't understand.
