The sign of the 47



Tonight I went to Refuge. Refuge is the high school student ministry @ HPC. For a little while now I have thought about helping out there. Now as an Elevate student I can do that to see if that is an area of ministry God wants me to be in.

Well I was all alone tonight, Dean was off doing his NFL draft for Fantasy football, so at first I felt really weird and old. I ask God to let me know, maybe give me a sign, speak to my heart if this was something I needed to really get into. I looked up on the stage and there it was, the number 47...

I always take that as a sign...of something for me.

But seriously, I can not tell you how much I enjoyed the entire service. I really felt God breaking me. As we sang "How Great is Our God" I just wept and felt God really touching me. It was great.

The sermon was amazing too and so timely. I am so glad I went. I know it was meant to be.

All the 47 did was just confirm that. God has a sense of humor and I think he speaks to us with it sometimes too.
