Close Encounters

Filed under: Uncategorized — lawsonjolly @ 5:00 am

Recently I reviewed several experiences in my life where God was there!  I mean special moments when my life could have been in great danger . . . and no harm came to me.  My mind labeled those as close encounters.  As I thought on several, my heart turned in thanksgiving to the gracious care of my Heavenly Father.

I could never list all of them . . . but I realized that I had written about many of them.  I began to list these.  And a portion of the list is provided for you if you have never read of them. Most of these were early blogs.  I know the vast number of new readers will not go back through the archives and I would like for all to hear some of my stories of God’s goodness. I would invite you over time to click on some of these and see what a wonderful thing my God has done in my life to protect and care for me.  The marvel of it . . . He will do this in any life that will yield to Him and allow Him to be the Everything in your life.  And certainly you will read of the many lessons I have learned through these experiences.  I publish this in thanksgiving to my God.
