Never Cease to be Amazed

"Great and amazing are your deeds, O Lord God the Almighty! Just and true are your ways, O King of the Nations!"
Revelation 15:3

It seems to me that I do not often pause to reflect on the amazing deeds the Lord has done in my life. When Jesus healed the sick, they were often amazed - why am I so slow to be amazed at his goodness all around me? So, I'd like to take some time to reflect on certain events in my life that truly were his amazing hands at work.

He has miraculously preserved my life and health through stupid teenage years, childbirth and highway driving. It has been his loving hand upon me that has protected me for his purposes.

He has transformed my heart of stone to a heart of flesh. Whenever I ponder this, I can't help but picture the breath of Aslan giving life to the statues in the witch's courts. He found me rebellious and in love with the world. And, he moved my heart toward seeking obedience and his glory.

Each one of my precious children is absolutely an amazing wonder. From the miracle of conception, to thriving in the womb, to entering the world safely, to growing into healthy little people. Each step of that is so intricate and complicated, yet my amazing God has done it all!

Out of all the billions of men in the world, he guided me to the one who was perfectly suited to be my husband. Each day I am more aware of how divinely arranged our marriage was.

I'll close with these and post more this week as they come to me. If you've read this and would like to also post some of the amazing things that He has done in your life, I'd love to hear about it!


  1. Glad you are back!! I too am amazed at my children and the way God made Jason and I for each other. I am also amazed at all the other people He places in my life for one reason or another. The way He reaffirms to me that I am in His will when I am doubting the decisions I am forced to make.

  2. Yes, I am amazed how He has protected me in many situations. Thanks for the reminder.

    ...how are you feeling? :)

  3. Hey Kendra....

    I am glad youre back too! I just want to say that every thing you said in your post is ME as well. Thanks for putting it so wonderfully. From the teenage years to meeting me prince He made just for me...

    I am in awe if His unfailing and oh so sufficient love for me!

  4. What a beautiful life, yes? You are blessed, friend.
    I hope you are feeling better! :)

  5. thanks for the reminder to be thankful...I want that to be an autopilot response for me when I wake up each day...it changes my mood immediately!

  6. wonderfully amazing things you posted here... and things that i can tend to take for granted. i think we're so used to things like childbirth that we fail to realize and remember what miraculous and spectacular things they are! thanks for the reminder!

  7. "They will pick up snakes with their hands; and when they drink deadly poison, it will not hurt them at all." Mark 16:18a

    I know I've survived snakes I have chosen to pick up and poison I have chosen to drink. Amazing!


  8. I found your blog while on a 'rabbit trail' and read through most of your posts - an enjoyable visit! I have you linked and will visit again soon.

  9. Fate is a pretty amazing thing. I think about it every time I look at my wife and the amazing life that we have created together.

    It doesn't just happen in a vacuum.

  10. Hello all, sorry I haven't been on much - we've had the flu over here :(

    Carmi, I appreciate you kind comment. But, I wasn't really referring to fate in my post. I was writing about the one true and living God. Do you know him?
