In God We Trust

I actually watched this movie, but this is described so very well..
This is an email I received and I have LOTS of Christian friends, and thought I would spread this around. Not sure where you can get the video to watch, my MIL bought it and we watched it as a family. VERY NICE. and yes I left in tears because I had an emotional day thinking of my miscarriage.


Look it up or Google it.

A doctor-friend wrote:

A couple of days ago I was running (I use that term very loosely) on my treadmill, watching a DVD sermon by Louie Giglio ...and I was BLOWN AWAY! I want to share what I learned....but I fear not being able to convey it as well as I want. I will share anyway.

He was talking about how inconceivably BIG our God He spoke the universe into He breathes stars out of His mouth that are huge raging balls of fire...etc. etc.
Then He went on to speak of how this star-breathing, universe creating God ALSO knitted our
human bodies together with amazing detail and wonder.. At this point I am LOVING it (fascinating from a medical standpoint, you know.) ....and I was remembering how I was constantly amazed during medical school as I learned more and more about God's handiwork.
I remember so many times thinking....'How can ANYONE deny that a Creator did all of this???'

He went on to talk about how we can trust that the God who created all this, also has the power to hold it all together when things seem to be falling our loving Creator is also our sustainer.

And then I lost my breath.

And it wasn't because I was running my treadmill, either!!!

It was because he started talking about laminin.

I knew about laminin. Here is how wikipedia describes them: 'Laminins are a family of
proteins that are an integral part of the structural scaffolding of basement membranes in
almost every animal tissue.' You see....laminins are what hold us together....LITERALLY.
They are cell adhesion molecules. They are what holds one cell of our bodies to the next
cell.. Without them, we would literally fall apart. And I knew all this already. But what I
didn't know is what laminin LOOKED LIKE..

But now I do.

And I have thought about it a thousand times since (already)....

Here is what the structure of laminin looks like...AND THIS IS NOT a 'Christian portrayal'
of it....if you look up laminin in any scientific/medical piece of literature, this is what you
will see...

Now tell me that our God is not the coolest!!!


The glue that holds us together...ALL of in the shape of the cross.

For by him all things were created; things in heaven and on earth , visible and invisible,
whether thrones or powers or rulers or authorities; all things were created by him and for him.
He is before all things, and in him all things HOLD TOGETHER. '
Colossians 1:15-17.

Thousands of years before the world knew anything about laminin, Paul penned those words.. And now we see that from a very LITERAL standpoint, we are held cell to the cross.

You would never in a quadrillion years convince me that is anything other than the mark of
a Creator who knew EXACTLY what laminin 'glue' would look like long before Adam even breathed his first breath!!

" Faith is not knowing what the future holds, but knowing who holds the future."

I wanted you to know and to undertstand that YOU are being held together by the cross of Jesus Christ . His love. His forgiveness and His marvelous power.....

Have a GREAT WEEK and

but always... remember the REASON for the SEASON!!
