God Wink

I love the term "God Wink." I learned it from a dear friend that described it to mean 'something that only God could orchestrate.'

We experienced one of those moments just yesterday and I couldn't wait to share.

Back in May, our Director of the Kids Ministry at our church asked if Little JCrew would read the scripture for a service during the Summer. During the past two summers they have involved the kids ministry in reading a scripture during the service. Little JCrew jumped at the opportunity. We were then provided dates during the month of July that would work for us and we were then told our date and told our verse to rehearse.

Yesterday was Little JCrew's turn. I was torn about videoing the process, because I like to be "in the moment," but I turned my phone on and tried to do both.



I showed the video to my mom when she got home. She watched it and then asked if I knew the verses. She then explained the importance.

I have a brother that died when he was seven. I was born shortly after his death (that is a whole different God story.) Before his death, he learned Philippians 3:12-14 to earn his badge for Jet Cadets. Those verses were read at his funeral.

And here Little JCrew is, 1.5 months shy of his seventh birthday, reciting that same verse. No one knew this story, yet those verses were chosen for the Sunday that my little one was chosen to serve.

*God Wink*

HAVE A GREAT WEEK!
