where God proves once again that there is nothing too hard for Him
Thursday, October 2, 2008
For the past year, Kim had been praying for no rain on her wedding date so the ceremony could be held outside. I hit the road in Rochester for the hour-long drive and drove through visibility-impairing rain much of my way there. I arrived around noon to a light misty drizzle.
Kim showed me the verses she had printed out…with the statement at the bottom that "God is in control and He will choose the weather." We spent the next 3+ hours checking the windows, judging the intensity of the rain and hoping for breaks in the clouds.
Here we are, testing the lighting for having the ceremony under the roof of the veranda. The chairs were set up inside, ready to go.
But wait! Is that sunshine I see?
Decision time. The coordinator said they'd haul out the outside chairs and set them up, in case it clears.
And then, the God who asks Jeremiah "is there anything too hard for me?" and of whom the disciples exclaimed "even the wind and the waves obey Him" steps in and holds back the rain. He held it off for the ceremony and all the photos afterwards…even for a trip onto the golf course.
When we got back to the lodge, it started raining again.
What have you been thinking is "too hard" for God?
(stay tuned for more pics of the wedding soon!)
