Truth is stranger than fiction

There is a saying, “truth is stranger than fiction“. If you think of that from a Bible toting Christian’s point of view, you can say “Amen to that!”If a person tells you they saw a pink elephant walk through the room, you would ask how much they’d had to drink! I think of that every time I share how God started to show me things and speak to me as a child. It is presumptuous of me to tell you that and expect you to accept it although I have no doubt that most of you do!
We believe that Moses saw a burning bush that was not consumed, and that God spoke to him as he stood there, we believe that the Red Sea parted and the Children of Israel walked across on dry land while the army of Pharaoh was drowned. We believe that Jesus Christ is the Son of God that He was clothed in flesh from the womb of a virgin. We believe he turned the water into wine, walked on water, cleansed lepers, gave the blind their sight, the lame their legs, and raised the dead to life again! We believe that as the disciples watched, He was taken up in a cloud, and, most importantly, we believe that He will return again and, not only that, but we will meet Him in the air!                           What’s so strange about that? We have grown up with those facts and we accept them as the truth, because they are the truth or maybe we just repeat the stories from the Bible from habit and take the miracles for a nice myth.                                                                         I have seen mind-blowing miracles but the most amazing miracle of all is the promise Jesus made when He said Hebrews 13:5 “I will never leave you nor forsake you” John 14:27 I’m leaving you well and whole. That’s my parting gift to you. Peace. I don’t leave you the way you’re used to being left—feeling abandoned, bereft. So don’t be upset. Don’t be distraught.                                                                                                                                               I Corinthians 13:8 starts with “Love never dies“, now that’s a miracle… isn’t that a truth that is stranger than fiction?
