One day I was sitting in the cemetery all alone. I asked Jesus to reveal himself to me. Suddenly, the clouds disappeared. The sun shined so bright that I could see myself in the marble of a tombstone I was sitting on.

I realized that Jesus had just showed himself to me. He showed me that He was in me. I was so amazed.

Jesus Christ is in each of us. We're all made in the image of Christ. The Lord speaks to each of us in special ways. We all need to spend more time with God. He's the answer we're each searching for. The scripture says "Greater is he whom is in me than he who is in the world."

My point is that life can be beautiful and simple. There doesn't have to be turmoil. God listens and so should we.

I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters to create many ripples.

Terry, I don’t think it works that way. Just go ask the people of Lake Charles about weather being a sign from God. Signs from God are internal, not external.

Good job Mr. Segura. Hope you don't mind me adding to, and giving you a little help. Ephesians 3:20 says Now unto Him who is able to do exceedantly and abundantly above all we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. ( Philippians 4:13 ) says " I can do all things through Christ that strengthened me." ( 1 Corinthians 3:9 ) ........"For we are LABORERS together with GOD....." ( 2 Corinthians 6:1)

" We then As WORKERS together with Him, beseech you also that you receive not the grace of GOD in vain."

Now if we put all of what I mentioned here with what you mentioned in stating (1 John 4:4 ).." You are of GOD little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world." So then the message here is: ..alone and drifting up and down in the world we are limited greatly. However working with the LORD as our partner, we are greater than the powers of destructions working against us. I should also mention the Apostle Paul exclaimed in Romans 8:36-37 that WE face death all the day long, and are considered to be as sheep to be slaughtered, but NAY, for We are more than OVERCOMERS through Him that loved us." Good job Mr. Segura, ...and let me thank you brother for Taking the time to honor GOD by writing this piece. You could have written something about SLAVES, and STATUES! I am glad you didn't ...but instead posted an Op-Ed speaking on the power and love of GOD who watches over us. Many thanks!
