I took this picture at the Tanger Outlets in Deer Park. Their decorations are beautiful and there is ice skating around the tree in the center. Try to go at night so you can see it lit up! My husband and I weren't planning on shopping, only dropping our daughter off there. We were glad that we stayed.
When my Father had open-heart surgery I remember being amazed that he didn't have any stitches. He was actually gluded together! What incredible things are happening in the areas of science and research, yet Our God has always mended hearts in so many ways. He does so using different people and circumstances, but it is always beyond our wildest imaginations!
I can remember saying to God, "How can you make anything good out of the mess that I have made? I don't understand Lord, what is your purpose here?" He didn't answer me right away, but as time moved on, I saw all the pieces of the puzzle fall in place. Today I can trust Him more than ever before because I have a history with God. I can see how he miraculously has made things right, when I was hopeless.
I have had family members and friends come to me in the past few days with situations that they couldn't see past. I prayed with them, and am trusting God to make a way. Everyone wants to see a miracle, but no one wants to be in the place to need a miracle, but we find ourselves there anyway. How will we know that He is the Living God if we never need Him to move in the miraculous?
"For since the beginning of the world Men have not heard nor perceived by the ear, Nor has the eye seen any God besides You, Who acts for the one who waits for Him. Isaiah 64:4
