What if It's God Speaking?

As many of you know, this has been a very difficult time in my family. My brother-in-law was in a very serious car accident on Wednesday. He spent 5 days in the ICU and we hoped and prayed for his recovery. Last night, he went to be with Jesus.

He was a dad, a husband, a son, a friend, but most importantly he loved the Lord.

Thank you for your prayers and for your kind words and emails! I appreciate your friendship and your support for my family.

I'd like to share with you this video of a song by Mandisa "God Speaking." My sister-in-law shared how this song touched her and I pray that it will touch your heart too.

Have you ever heard a love song
That set your spirit free
Have you ever watched a sunrise
And felt you could not breathe
What if it's Him
What if it's God speaking
Have you ever cried a tear that
You could not explain
Have you ever met a stranger
That already knew your name
What if it's Him
What if it's God speaking

Who knows how He'll get a hold of us
Get our attention to prove He is enough
He'll do and He'll use
Whatever He wants to
To tell us I love you

Have you ever lost a loved one
Who you thought should still be here
Do you know what it feels like
To be tangled up in fear
What if He's somehow involved
What if He's speaking through it all

His ways are higher
His ways are better
Though sometimes strange
What could be stranger
Than God in a manger

God is speaking
I love you
