The Power of the Cross

{I had a super busy weekend and was unable to post for day 9, 10, and 11 of #Write31Days. My church hosted a youth meeting and I kept 6 people in our tiny apartment. It was an amazing weekend but also extremely exhausting!}

So enough excuses. Today I'm sharing about the most miraculous salvation story I've ever heard! My friend Christa told me about it over the weekend. This is going to be a pretty short post, but you will finish reading it with no doubt in your mind that God is REAL! So here is the story...

A man was on a swim team and one of his teammates often talked about becoming a Christian to him but he just had no interest. I'm not sure how long this went on but it sounds like his friend was pretty persistent.

So after hearing about Jesus for however long, this young man went to practice diving one evening at the pool. He was all alone and the moonlight shining in through the windows provided enough light that he didn't turn on the lights. He was going to do a backwards dive and as he raised both hands up to prepare to dive he saw that his shadow formed a cross and suddenly he had an overwhelming feeling to get down on his knees and pray!

This man gave his life to God on that diving board! Soon after a janitor walked in and asked what he was doing. Unbeknownst to this young man, the pool had been drained earlier that day. If he would've dove off that board he most likely would have died. And he realized even more how REAL God is!

This story just gives me chills and is such an amazing reminder that God is always there. He always knows where we are. If we reach up to Him He will always reach down to us. He is never going to leave us hanging without an answer. HE IS SO GOOD!
