Seeing Signs

A Cross in the Sky
A few weeks ago, in another blog post, I mentioned our friend, whom I’ll call Elizabeth, and her son, whom I called John. I mentioned in passing that she’d faced some struggles and setbacks lately.

About a week after our evening that I mentioned in the earlier post, Elizabeth and John left everything behind to set down roots in a far-off corner of the country. We’ve been in touch via email since she left. Earlier this week she sent me this update:

Still going around giving resumes, getting lost on the road A LOT, and
really paying attention to God’s unfailing protection. Signs everywhere
(finally!) as if I tell it all it would sound insane. This morning I got
lost again, very little gas in the car and I turned the radio ON to get some
distraction…not a surprise, on the Christian Radio, Pastor Chuck was
talking about discouragement, frustrations, and I missed the 2 first ways
that the “enemy” gets us to believe lies, but if we stay focused, we know
God is there all the time. As I am saying thank you in the middle of a
beautiful road to nowhere, I see on the sky a perfect Cross made by clouds,
those from airplanes, 2 perfect straight lines making a cross! My day got
better, I mean, I got better and there is so many other little stories
everyday, I know we will be ok.

Our threats may not be a lions’ den, but He does still show Himself.

27 He rescues and saves His people; He performs miraculous signs and
wonders in the heavens and on earth. He has rescued Daniel from the power of the lions.

Daniel 6:27 (NLT)
