During 2014, the church family will be sharing our stories with each other - our brief "God-Sightings" - of how we have seen God work in our lives, how He has spoken through others, how He has blessed us, and how He has been impacting our lives in very real ways.
And, perhaps, God has done something special in your life - maybe He has used someone to touch your life in some significant way; perhaps He has given you a particular passage from the Bible at just the right time; maybe He provided for you in some miraculous way. We'd like to give you the opportunity to share those brief "God-Sightings" with us.

Last night, my husband and I went to dinner at a small vietnamese restaurant in Kaneohe. A good samaritan who saw us leaving while the restaurant owner ran out trying to get our attention because I forgot my phone on the table, noticed that we had stopped at Kaneohe Bakery and pulled in to let us know what happened. God was definitely working in that guy! May he blessed for his good deed :).

Yesterday I totally forgot about cancelling 2 doctor appointments scheduled for the next day, after I was selected to serve in a jury. Then today, by act of God, trial was cancelled, and while thinking about going to work next, it dawned on me that I have doctors appointments to go to. I made it to my first appointment on-time. Thank you Jesus! Our God is so good.

This has happened multiple times before but was more so last week. We had finished a series in Sunday School, and I was pondering what to teach next. Nothing clicked but choosing a name for the class, and after pursuing other topics, kept coming back to "Names." We used it for our lesson, and the sermon was also on names. God knows what He wants to say, even when we don't.

This is God-incidence! I was just going through Netflix and youtube over the weekend ---and was telling myself, how come there's not a lot of Christian movies or even materials to watch about being a Christian ... and then lo and behold, I come to church on Sunday and the answer is right there with RightNow Media. So many videos to watch, I am on a marathon RIGHT NOW. I just finished watching Session 2: At Capacity of Andy Stanley's Time of Your Life Series. I so love his visualization of 'Priority Determines Capacity' with the jar of rocks and sand and peebles. So powerful and yet so real!

I saw God... in the face of my cousin's daughter when she told me that she and her son had become believers. Praise the Lord!

I saw God... this morning when someone mentioned to me that if we are doing God's will the difficulties we are experiencing is the devil trying to discourage us. This comes at a time when i was totally discouraged and ready to give up.

Kaiser Hospital Ministry last patient – a woman. Asked her if she had a favorite hymn – she couldn’t voice her words; her mouth moved but we couldn’t understand her. A.P., J.S. J.A. leaned an ear to her. I watched her mouth and then sang 1st line to “How Great Thou Art” Her face just broke into the most beautiful smile – her face beamed! We got it right! Thanks to God’s inspiration. Her beaming face has been with me all this week.
"I saw God..."
...in the 40+ years of friendship I share with my friends from elementary school --- we have kept in touch through intermediate and high school, college, marriages (and divorces), kids, loss of parents, sending kids off to college, kids graduating from college, and now we are able to enjoy our "free-time" and recognize the blessings He has bestowed upon all of us :-).

I saw God at the checkout counter when a lady approached me to have my empty wagon. A moment of decision…be a neighbor. Walking to car the bags became a bit heavy but a person was returning an empty wagon. Thank you God.

I saw God…in golden yellow flowers tha look like confetti dancing in the wind
I left my back car windows down all afternoon at the LCC parking lot. IN my car trunk I had left a laptop and a textbook. By His grace and mercy nothing was touched.
We are preparing to renovate our home and had ventured to town to look at some showrooms and stopped along the way to have lunch at a café that we’ve been wanting to try for years but could never find parking. We not only found a parking spot but one right in front of this very popular eatery. What a wonderful blessing!!
March 18, 2014I see God... at our church session, committees show His hand, moving feet, sharing inputs, spirited voices, faithful decisions for our body, of God’s eternal love. Thank God for His servants (Phil. 4:8).

…in His faithfulness in spite of my circumstances from losing my husband and to find my newborn grandson born with a large growth in his brain. No matter what He is in control and I need to trust Him.

"(I see God)… on a lei made of colorful lights on a string that turn on when a button is pressed. A birthday light, happy birthday wishes, and lights. Some lights blinked. I saw that as our church family, held together by His unconditional love, God, Christ, and us. When some are 'on' others are “off'. What a find! Hearing, seeing Dr. Stricker’s wonderful words of love. 'Your Word has revived me and gives me life!' Psalm 119:50"

"(I see God)… when He continually forgives me and loves me on a bad day."
"(I see God)… when He works things out in my day – especially since we are trying to clean out my sister’s home with other family members."

"I see God..everyday in the love between people and their pets. I am blessed to work in a profession where I can see the many ways that unconditional love can transform lives and unite us all."
"I saw God...As I took my morning walk. There was an unusual beautfiul, vertical rainbow. Then as I drove home later there was a clear double rainbow right in front of me and I thought, “only God.”

"I saw God...when I turned into a Christian. I saw him change my heart."
"There have been many instances in my life where God has always impacted my life. Recently though He has always blessed our family with being able to make rent to keep a roof over our heads aas well as food on our table with me and my health issues, not being able to work. He has always provided us with all that we need and blessed us with a great church. Than you Lord, our Father, for all you do for us."
"I saw God...in the messages, songs, SS lesson(s), and daily devotionals as I asked God whether or not I should go to China on the mission trip."

"I saw...God’s mercy when I cut off a biker and he forgave me when I later went up to apologize."
