How great is my God? Truly amazing! Let me tell you a story...
A few days ago I had a very vivid dream. In it, the family and I went into a restaurant with some friends of ours. And there sat an old friend of mine from high school. One I haven't seen or spoken to in 15 to 20 years. We caught up and exchanged phone numbers.
I woke up wondering why in the world I had dreamed about her. I haven't thought about her in so long, and it was such a real dream.
Flash forward to Wednesday evening. The family and I are meeting friends (yes, the ones we were going to the restaurant with in the dream) are heading to church for an evening of worship and a celebration of the Lord's Supper. As we walk toward the worship center I glance over and my heart stopped!. There, walking into another room IS THE SAME WOMAN I HAD DREAMED ABOUT just days before.
At least I was 99% sure it was her. I couldn't be positive unless I spoke to her.
I was shaken to my core. I had dreamed about running into her and suddenly there she is in my church? What were the chances?
I couldn't stop thinking about it through the entire service. And I decided if I saw her again after I had to go over and find out if it was in fact her and to speak to her. I knew if God had placed both of us there at that moment - there had to be a reason and I couldn't let the opportunity pass by.
Standing in the atrium after, my eyes kept scanning the crowd. Was it her? Would I see her again? There!! I think I may have sprinted over to her (and I hope I didn't elbow anyone or knock down any small children in my hurry) and said "Excuse me, are you S-?" It was! I told her who I was, and a joyful reunion too part. I think I hugged her at least 3 or 4 times.
We have exchanged phone numbers. Texts were sent today.
I don't know why God decided it was time for our paths to cross again, but I can't wait to see what He has in mind for us!
