May 1, 2009 | My Jottings
Last Sunday at a local church in our city, many people participated in something during the morning worship service called Cardboard Testimonies. I didn’t see it, but heard from friends who did that it was very moving, even though the participants didn’t utter a word.
I found a few videos online of other churches who have done something similar, and this one I’m posting is my favorite. Michael and I have watched it again and again, and cried each time. I hope you will watch it and share it with someone who needs to see that God can put broken lives back together. The end of the video is amazing.
I could hold up at least half a dozen cardboard signs of my own. I’m so thankful that God can take any broken person or broken situation, and rebuild the ruins of their lives. He has done it for me, yes, and is still doing it.
He can do it for you. Be encouraged – there is nothing God cannot do.
WOW indeed! The tears are still flowing! Thank you Jesus that YOU have written the words on the second side of my piece of cardboard! I praise your HOLY NAME!
That was so incredible. What a beautiful reminder of what God can and is doing in our lives. Lord, you are marvelous!
