I am watching Louie Giglio’s sermon entitles Indescribable on YouTube as I lay in bed and the images of the universe are blowing my mind. As he’s talking, I allow my eyes to wonder around the room at my candles. I notice the glass candle holder I recently purchased looks more beautiful than ever, and I can’t help but stare as the light from the flame dances about behind the colored chips of glass. Then, in an instant, a cross appears in the vase and my breath is absolutely taken away. This glass vase has always had 2 crosses designed on its body, but this is the first time I’ve ever seen them! I’ve had this vase for weeks now, and didn’t notice the beautiful symbol of God on it when it procured it. As I stared at the vase, I said aloud, “I didn’t know You were here.” Obviously, I was speaking to God, whose presence I have been desperate to feel today. And as I am in awe of this new discover in my home, Mr. Giglio’s sermon takes on a new height as he reveals an image of the cross that was taken by the Hubble telescope of the center of the Whirlpool Galaxy. He’s shouting from the YouTube video, “God is everywhere! God’s Grace and Mercy are everywhere” literally at the same time I am staring at this cross and it hits me: God has always been and will always be here, with me, wherever I go. God is bigger than any problem I could ever have, and my God is here and everywhere, all at the same time!
Check out the sermon, it will blow your mind!
