I used to wonder when I was growing up and visited some of the churches of my relatives, why the minister always asked "can I get a witness?" My young mind would say "witness to what?" I did not understand. My mom tried to explain, but my young mind could not wrap her meaning around my silly thoughts. Flash forward to today. Can I get a witness means something totally different to me. When God's miracles are preformed, and yes I said miracles. When we are witnesses to them first hand. When a cancer goes into remission. When a loved one changes for the better. When you get that job. When your life is spared. When your child lives through a rough illness. How can you not be a witness? So today when I am asked that question, "can I get a witness?" I say yes, yes, yes yes you can. I am a walking, talking breathing witness for my God and what he does for me and others who walk by faith and not by sight. Amen?
