Divine Dominion Power

Power’s on! That was the message from Jonathan after our electricity was out from Wednesday night until sometime in the early hours of Friday morning.

Earlier, after the Wednesday night storm, I heard people asking each other, “Did you lose power?”  Some would say it only flickered for a moment or two, while others, like us, said yes.

But it got me to thinking. This language about electricity is misleading.

We did not lose power. We lost connection to the electric grid. But we, Jonathan and I, still had all our power, all the power God gives us. Dominion Virginia Power has a lot of power, of course, but not as much as God.

And God’s doesn’t ever lose connectivity. At least on God’s end.

God’s the real p0wer. Divine Dominion Power–that’s a company in which I want to invest.
