An old friend came to my mind in the middle of the night last night. I'm not particularly close to this guy. I never was really. But I'd say we were friends... once.
I just wanted to go back to sleep but I could not stop thinking about this guy and his family... I just lay there... thinking.
I just found out this morning via his Facebook status that he was at the hospital emergency room with his kid at the exact same time that he and his family were on my mind.
Right now, I am blown away by the power of the Holy Spirit. I think I go about my day (and night) underestimating the power of God, at least when it comes to His power at work in me personally.
I know what the Bible says about it. "...the Spirit of him who raised Jesus from the dead is living in you."
That's a lot of power.
I need to live more aware to the realities that that simple (yet miraculous) fact brings to my simple (yet miraculous) life. And when people come to mind like that and I need to do a better job of recognizing the Holy Spirit's direction to pray from now on!
