Holy Goose Bumps
When I was praying about what God wanted me to do with my writing, the suggestion to publish a Christian newspaper started the holy goose bumps popping out all over me, and to me, that was God’s way of confirming what He wanted me to do with my writing. Many times since, the holy goose bumps have been activated when God speaks to me.
To name my column “Holy Goose Bumps” seemed appropriate. I write about people, places and things where I see our mighty God at work and all of that gives me holy goose bumps. Reflections of the sky on a perfectly tranquil lake reminds me that when we are still, we best reflect Christ. and that gives me holy goose bumps. A person stepping out in awesome faith in a difficult situation gives me holy goose bumps. A blessed Scripture verse or a hymn remembered that brought peace and comfort gives me holy goose bumps. God is everywhere. He is in everything. We just need to look. I hope my Holy Goose Bumps helps others see God in all things.“I shall remember the deeds of the Lord; Surely I will remember Thy wonders of old. I will meditate on all Thy work, And muse on Thy deeds. Thy way, O God, is holy; What god is great like our God? Thou art the God who workest wonders; thou hast made known Thy strength among the peoples. Thou hast by Thy power redeemed Thy people. ...” Psalm 77:11-15
