Sometimes I forget just because I have not literally seen His face, audibly heard His laughter or physically sat at His dusty, divine feet, does not mean I have not truly experienced His goodness.
If I would only be still, and look at my life through the kaleidescope of faith, I would see Him more clearly.
The little hands that work so hard to write their letters perfectly just to hear their teacher say, “Wow, great job!,” is His voice whispering, “I have called you to do an important work.”
My Savior’s sweetness can be felt when a precious little one takes a break from her lunch just to come give her teacher a hug.
The Holy Spirit’s grace abounds as this writer’s pen flows with words of wisdom and encouragement that can only come from the heavenly place where living water flows endlessly.
My Father’s loving arms embrace me when my friend sends me a text to say, “Hey, I just wanted you to know I miss you and I’m thinking of you, always,”
And, how about the calls and texts from my baby brothers that make me smile and laugh with such sincere joy? That is a taste of what it must have felt like to walk next to Jesus as a friend and brother.
My list could go on and on.
The myriad of ways God shows Himself present and active in our lives is beautifully variegated. Oh that I would be more open to see the subtle, yet profound, truth – ordinary moments become extraordinary in the presence of the King.
Lisa Harper is an amazing Bible teacher and a Spirit-filled speaker. Her book, Believing Jesus, is what the Lord has used to stir my heart tonite. The book of Acts is going to be an incredibly moving study, I’m sure.
Join us and share all that the Lord does in your life too!!
I look forward to hearing from you!!
